The Breach - Patrick  Lee

I've just finished The Breach by Patrick Lee and I loved it. 


The book doesn't fit neatly into any one genre.   At it's core it is a fast paced action/adventure with very strong thriller elements wrapped up in an original science fiction plot.


Comparing it to television/movies, the closest would be: Bourne trilogy meets X-files meets 24.


The action scenes are extremely visceral.  It is a violent read without being gratuitous.  The characters are complex, which is fairly uncommon when it comes to the action/adventure genre, and the storyline is the most original I have read since 'Search for the Buried Bomber'.


I love a fast-paced action-thriller with and intelligent plot with incredible twists and the Breach has them all.


One thing to remember... The Breach is the first book of a three-book overarching story, but I can assure you, you will want to read the second book as soon as you finish this.


4 out of 5 stars which for me means this book is a must read for fans of this genre-fusion.
