Review: Project Moses

Enzo Lee, 37, a burned out reporter, has forsaken investigative reporting on the East Coast to churn out feature fluff in San Francisco. He likes his North Beach apartment, steps away from his Chinatown roots. Running, tai chi, great food, women who are attracted to his exotic looks. Life is good. Then, Lee is ordered to cover the unexplained deaths of a local judge and prosecutor. Intrigued by the connection, and the judge’s attractive niece, Sarah Armstrong, Lee begins to uncover a bioterrorism scandal whose perpetrators - including government officials and Silicon Valley titans - will kill to conceal. When Lee and Sarah become targets, the question becomes whether the pair can evade their hunters and piece together the story before their time runs out. Project Moses is set in San Francisco, New York and Silicon Valley.

Looking for a well paced thriller?  One that  characters that you will either cheer for or look for way to get rid of?  If so then PROJECT MOSES is the book for you.  

I don't read mysteries but was really in the mood for a good thriller on the day that I picked PROJECT MOSES up.  I am really glad that I didn't let the mention of mystery on the cover dissuade me as this book is incredible.  Has to be one of the best thrillers that I have read in a long time.

Following a slow build up that gives the reader a chance to get to know Lee, there is non-stop action as Lee and Sarah stay one step ahead of a federal agent and other enforcers.  To be able to survive they are going to have to build a case against a large and well positioned company.   

While the action is great and causes this book to be a page turner what caused me to fall in love with it was the characters themselves.  Lee thought that he was washed up as an investigative reporter after an earlier mistake but he still has all the instincts needed which keep them alive.  Sarah is a good partner for him.  She thinks outside of the box and is great when it comes to doing research.  There are also some great secondary characters such as police detective who believes in Lee and his reporter buddies.

I highly recommend PROJECT MOSES to anyone who enjoys thrillers.  This is actually the first novel for Mr. Lowe and I will be keeping an eye out for any further releases.

I rate this book a 4.7.

***I received this book at no charge through LibraryThing in exchange for a fair and honest review.
