Here are a list of books I plan to read this week! Are any on your list?
2020. The world watches as biogeneticist Brian Matterosi goes on trial for his life before the International Criminal Court. His crime? To engineer a virus which has swept the globe and sterilised entire populations. Is Matterosi a genius or a madman with a God complex? Only one thing is certain: he is a complicated man with a difficult past.
Nobody would acknowledge that more than Matterosi’s defence attorney, Art Blume, who is spearheading the campaign to save the scientist’s life.
Prosecutor Leeton Kgabu has no such difficulty: for him Matterosi is a vicious murderer who deserves death for his crimes against the human race. The world craves justice, and Leeton is determined to see it happen. At all costs.
To Art Blume’s dismay, Brian Matterosi appears intent on helping Kgabu achieve his goal. What dark secrets are driving the scientist to seek his own annihilation? Is he truly the worst mass murderer of mankind or is he its saviour? As the trial progresses, Art discovers he is running out of time to find the truth.
In the aftermath of a terrorist attack Neil is given the chance to serve his country by serving up revenge. He soon becomes England’s premier spy and assassin. As a man he was unpleasant, dangerous and of little use. As a cyborg he is unpleasant, very dangerous and extremely useful. His suicide missions fit his strengths and his weaknesses. He exacts vengeance, kills without mercy, then destroys the evidence by destroying his temporary body. The aftermath is someone else’s problem.
The scientists that created this nanotechnology knew they were creating a monster. They did not know that Neil was monstrous before they started. What do they tell their superiors when Neil’s atrocities escalate? With every mission a success, will the bureaucrats even care?
But Neil is worse than homicidal and psychopathic, he’s untidy. When he leaves his severed head in Iran, he leaves a pathologist a puzzle to solve. If she succeeds, it will destroy England’s only chance to survive in a terrorists’ transformed world. The humanity of every member of this top secret team will be maximally tested when they are ordered to send this powerful psychotic assassin on a rescue mission.
I am particularly excited about this weeks reads. Keep an eye out for reviews and see how I liked them!
