Deep Skyby Patrick Lee
Synopses & Reviews
“Lee has an intense brand of storytelling….[Hes] the real deal.”
Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key
Patrick Lees extraordinary Breach trilogy comes to an explosive and breathtaking conclusion with Deep Sky—as Travis Chase of the ultra-secret government agency Tangent finally comes face to face with the decision that could determine the ultimate fate of the world. With The Breach, Ghost Country, and now Deep Sky, Patrick Lee has established himself as a major voice in the thriller genre, combining ingenious scenarios with non-stop action and X-Files-like strangeness. His electrifying fiction has earned exuberant praise from a host of New York Times bestselling masters of suspense (“Audacious and terrifying” —Lee Child, “Brilliant…Pure exhilaration from the first page to the last” —James Rollins, “WOW! Double Wow!...Makes Tom Clancy look like the slowest child in the class.” —Stephen Coonts). Everything ends here…and there is nowhere on Earth to hide.
"The marvelous final volume in bestseller Lee's thriller trilogy that began with The Breach (2009) and Ghost Country (2010) opens with a bang. Covert agent Travis Chase scrambles to make sense of a missile strike on the White House that kills the U.S. president while he's delivering a televised speech in the Oval Office. That catastrophe is but the prelude to an assault on the secret base where Chase's obscure agency, Tangent, is housed. The base is also the location of the Breach, a way into another dimension from which strange entities enter our own. To uncover the conspiracy behind the assassination, Chase and his colleagues must dig up the truth behind a major investigation Tangent undertook during the Reagan administration, notwithstanding the disappearance of all the agency's records. Lee, who tosses in a neat variant on time travel, smoothly combines the pulse-pounding suspense of the TV show 24 with the SF intrigues of the X-Files. Agent: Janet Reid."

The anomaly called the Breach is the governments most carefully guarded secret.
But there is another secret even less known . . . and far more terrifying.
As the U.S. President addresses the nation fromthe Oval Office, a missile screams toward the White House. In a lightning flash, the Chief Executive is dead, his mansion in ruins, and two cryptic words are the only clue to the assassins motives: “See Scalar.”
Now Travis Chase of the covert agency Tangent—caretakers of the Breach and all its grim wonders—along with partner and lover Paige Campbell and technology expert Bethany Stewart, have only twenty-four hours to unearth a decades-old mystery once spoken of in terrified whispers by the long since silenced. But their breakneck race cross-country—and back through time and malleable memory—is calling the total destructive might of a shadow government down upon them. For Travis Chase has a dark destiny he cannot be allowed to fulfill . . .
