Genre: Science Fiction, Horror
Length: 202 pages
Terrorists killed his wife. 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.
Four Boundless Stars
Neil, is a man, set on revenge. After the death of his love Jane by some terrorists. Neil is offered a chance to do with something, that could be the end of it all. Nanobots are used In different hosts to gain needed information on each mission.
This is a head scratcher because is Neil really alive somewhere? It's a question that wasn't answered throughout. There's plenty of action and suspense, that can keep the reader on edge, wondering what's going to happen next! I enjoy books like that. You just can't stop reading because you have to know.
It was an interesting and thrilling idea. A genre I don't read often, so it was refreshing.
