I really enjoyed reading this book, 4 stars.
Since Kane is so awesome, he gets at least a 5! ( )

Does a primeval ‘force’ exist which could, when harnessed by science, create new life species to benefit humanity or destroy all existing life on Earth? The answer lies in the lost medical documents of an Army physician during the Boer Wars of the 1800s.

The good guys, led by a Delta Force operative vs a Scandinavian hunter-killer female assassin, struggle for superiority in the race to find the source of the ancient life. The historical aspect interwoven with the search entangles both good and bad in life and death confrontations through Russia to Africa’s vast wilderness.

The idea is intriguing as are many of Rollins novels. However, too many dangerous confrontations are ‘manufactured', slowing the narrative, edging on disbelief and distracting from the better writing of the historical premise on which this fiction is built. ( )

This is the first of a series involving Tucker Wayne and Kane whom we met in Rollins' book, Bloodline. It is part of the Sigma universe, but only as a spin-off. Sigma plays a critical role in this book, but we encounter few of the normal Sigma characters.

Instead, our two heroes are Tucker Wayne and his Belgian Malinois who have to extract a Russian botnist who has made a discovery that could, as in many of Rollins' novels, save or destroy the world. Also like Rollins' novels, they travel all around the globe, from the tip-top in Russia to southern Africa. However, there is much less jumping around between multiple plot lines and multiple continents.

Other standard Rollins' devices includes caves, people refusing to die, and dogs on their haunches. ( )

This was much better than the second book in the Tucker Wayne series, "War Hawk," which I reviewed earlier. More action, and not as predictable.|

My only complaint in both his series thus far, is that I wish he would involve Kane, the dog, more in his stories. He seems to involve him more in "War Hawk" then here, but "The Kill Switch" had more action and more twists in the story. ( )

Kill Switch is filled with action-packed adventure. Many twists and turns keep Tucker and Kane busy in this thriller, while they search for an organism that can 'kill' a deadly contaminant from the beginning of life, accompanied by an unlikely team. ( )
