Publisher Comments:

Thirty years ago, in a facility buried beneath a vast Wyoming emptiness, an experiment gone awry accidentally opened a door.

It is the world's best-kept secret—and its most terrifying.

Trying to regain his life in the Alaskan wilds, ex-con/ex-cop Travis Chase stumbles upon an impossible scene: a crashed 747 passenger jet filled with the murdered dead, including the wife of the President of the United States. Though a nightmare of monumental proportions, it pales before the terror to come, as Chase is dragged into a battle for the future that revolves around an amazing artifact.

Allied with a beautiful covert operative whose life he saved, Chase must now play the role he's been destined for—a pawn of incomprehensible forces or humankind's final hope—as the race toward Apocalypse begins in earnest.

Because something is loose in the world.

And doomsday is not only possible . . . it is inevitable.

Review:

"Lee's debut thriller pits ex-con ex-cop Travis Chase against increasingly dire odds as the action ratchets up like levels in a complex video game. Fresh out of prison, Travis sets out on a solo Alaskan trek, wanting nothing more than quiet time for introspection. Then he encounters a downed plane containing the dead bodies of the United States's first lady and several others, plus hints about a mysterious missing item. Armed with superior firepower and the instincts and savvy of a good cop, Travis tracks down the murderers, who are torturing hostage Paige Campbell to get her father, Peter, to reveal another clue. Travis manages to rescue Paige just as Peter confesses the information and is killed. His last words send Paige and Travis into a dangerous world of secrets and conspiracies, where they slowly learn about the eponymous Breach and meet progressively more menacing foes. It's all here: brilliantly devious enemies; nifty, innovative gadgets and weaponry; hang-on-to-your-hat action; and razor-sharp plot twists aplenty." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In the Alaskan wilds, former cop Travis Chase stumbles upon the wreckage of a 747 filled with dead bodies, including the nation's First Lady. Soon Chase is dragged into a battle for the future that revolves around an amazing artifact. Original.

Synopsis:

“Audacious and terrifying—and uncannily believable.”
—Lee Child

New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series, Lee Child, was blown away by The Breach—and you will be, too! A novel of unrelenting suspense and nonstop surprises, The Breach immediately rockets author Patrick Lee into the V.I.P. section of the thriller universe. A treat for Jack Bauer (“24”) fans and “X-Files” aficionados, it is a white-knuckle roller-coaster ride that combines the best of Dean Koontz and Michael Crichton with a healthy dollop of Indiana Jones thrown into the mix—the perfect secret agent/government conspiracy/supernatural adventure.

About the Author

Patrick Lee lives in Michigan. He is the author of The Breach, Ghost Country, and Deep Sky.

I found Patrick Lee's the Breach not really looking for a book. I read the Back cover and was intrigued It was hard to understand at first,But I read on. By the end of the book I wanted more,it was thrilling,gripping and tension filled. there was an excerpt at the end from the second book, Ghost Country I knew had to read it. Same reaction I was so pleased.then Came Deep Sky final in the Chase/Campbell trilogy Wrap up everything from the first two books.Fantastic Thank you Patrick Lee!
