International bestselling author Patricia Cornwell delivers pulse-pounding thrills in a series featuring a brilliant and unusual new heroine, cutting-edge cybertechnology, and stakes that are astronomically high. On the eve of a top secret space mission, Captain Calli Chase detects a tripped alarm in the tunnels deep below a NASA research center. A NASA pilot, quantum physicist, and cybercrime investigator, Calli knows that a looming blizzard and government shutdown could provide the perfect cover for sabotage, with deadly consequences. As it turns out, the danger is worse than she thought. A spatter of dried blood, a missing security badge, a suspicious suicide--a series of disturbing clues point to Calli's twin sister, Carme, who's been MIA for days. Desperate to halt the countdown to disaster and to clear her sister's name, Captain Chase digs deep into her vast cyber security knowledge and her painful past, probing for answers to her twin's erratic conduct. As time is running out, she realizes that failure means catastrophe--not just for the space program but for the safety of the whole nation.… (més)

Well, this was a very hard book to read. I love Patricia Cornwell and have read every one of her books in the Kay Scarpetta series. That said, I only give this one three stars because of the gigantic amount of research she did on the subject of NASA's space program. Her character, Captain Calli Chase, reminds me a lot of Dr. Scarpetta. She is very smart, tough, and thorough to the point of exhaustion, but where Kay is also fun and interesting, Calli is neither. The entire story covers about twelve hours and is painstakingly delved out little by little through Calli's inner thoughts and a small amount of dialog. I felt like I was reading this while dangling in outer space and running out of air. Half way through I was begging for some action, but instead got more information on scientific facts, crime scene protocol, and how electronic gadgets work. And, while some of it was interesting, it did little to propel the plot. I don't think I'll be following this series because I have completely lost interest. ( )

Disappointing. Seems all Cornwell wanted to do was show off new knowledge; storyline had more potential than she gave it. At times hard to follow. ( )

Cornwell, Patricia. Quantum. Captain Chase No. 1. Thomas and Mercer, 2019.
Patricia Cornwell made her reputation with her series of forensic thrillers that featured Kay Scarpetta. With the Captain Chase series, set near NASA’s Hampton, Virginia, launch site, she is moving into near-future tech thriller territory. Twin sisters, Calli and Carme Chase, are both candidates for NASA’s astronaut program, but that is not the whole story. Calli, for example, is a quantum physicist with a temp job as an officer in NASA’s Protective Services department. Cornwell knows how to keep the action pumping from the first page, which makes the plot a many-ringed circus, which we guess from the start won’t fit in one novel, and it doesn’t. Here are some of the problems we find out about right away: Carme is missing, a NASA employee has been killed, a launch may have been sabotaged, there is a politically inspired government shutdown, and a freak winter storm has snarled Virginia traffic. Cornwell does her homework, so the science is plausible, as are the investigative techniques. Nice beach read. 3.5 stars. ( )

It's ok. Cornwell is in a bit of a rut with her Mary Sue protagonists. The pace is slow; halfway through and though gallons of hints have been dropped, nothing much has actually happened. It's an easy, fast read, which certainly has its place. ( )

Quantum is very wordy and I start losing interest at 2%. Nothing is happening accept what's going on in her head. Major problem was the main character; SUPER strong female character; quantum physicist, cybercrime investigator and a NASA pilot to boot but she freaks out and lost her cool at everything. It's so unbelievable.
I read reviews and found out you won't get any conclusion at the end of this book, no thank you...
1 star for the book, 1 star for the cool "kindle in motion".

This book was part of Kindle First. ( )
