BREAKTHROUGH
(The Adventures of Chase 
Manhattan)

BLURB:

"A scientific breakthrough of such magnitude it could radically alter the future of humanity—for better or worse—is in the wrong hands." The Information Age is moving at breakneck speed. Breakthroughs in areas of science that were once fodder for science fiction are now becoming part of our everyday life. A group of graduate students from Massachusetts Institute of Technology has stolen a breakthrough in opening and stabilizing Einstein-Rosen Bridges, commonly known as wormholes, that allows them to instantly transport people from one location to another. Their goal is to assassinate any powerful politician and executive controlling the world’s banking system that would use this technology for their own greedy gain rather than the advancement of mankind. In south Orange County, California, young Chase Manhattan, part of a new breed of modern-day discovery seekers, seeks to leave behind his life of danger and adventure and settle down as an associate professor of physics at University of California-Irvine. He also desires to build a lasting relationship with a beautiful woman he has not seen since high school. His idyllic plan is postponed when he soon uncovers the diabolical scheme on the other side of the country. He realizes he is the one person who can prevent more murders from happening and either control or destroy the technology. Once the M.I.T. group understands Chase and his friends have the ability and motivation to not only take the technology from them, but also thwart more killings, Chase finds himself in their crosshairs, the top-of-the-list target on their assassination agenda. As the death toll mounts, Chase and his friends must battle this group of misled zealots from M.I.T. on both coasts and in cyberspace in a thrilling, desperate race to determine the outcome of this monumental, once in a millenium discovery that will drastically change life as we know it—for better or worse. Breakthrough, the first book in the Adventures of Chase Manhattan series, begins with a big bang and offers the audience exciting, unique, and diverse heroes and villains. The result is a fresh suspense thriller series integrating elements of greed, betrayal, passion, lust, unconditional love, coming of age, and hope. The action is swift. There are numerous twists and turns that will keep the reader turning the pages and wanting more. You will want to be sure to read Stephen's next thrilling installment, Opening. Look for Opening coming soon at your favorite bookstore.

TEASER: 

William couldn’t talk. He couldn’t breathe. Shocked, he could only sit and look up. Unblinking sea-green eyes stared at him out of the slit mask. PlanC was simple enough—run for help. William sprang out of his chair and tried to run around the right side of his desk. The assassin leapt onto the floor in front of him and planted her right foot into William’s left knee, crumpling his breathless body onto the plush red-carpeted floor.
Tremp, Stephen (2010-07-20). Breakthrough: The Adventures of Chase Manhattan (The Breakthrough Trilogy) (Kindle Locations 448-451). Amazon.com. Kindle Edition.



MY REVIEW:

Stephen Tremp's first novel in The Adventures of Chase Manhattan, 'Breakthrough,' is a fast paced read, filled with technical espionage, martial arts, guns, love, sex, murder and the desperate struggle of three couples as they try to overcome a crazy man and his team of intellectual misfits from committing further atrocities, to keep a newly developed technology from being exploited by a corrupt corporate world.

Chase Manhattan, is a egregious character, which one just can't help but fall in love with. He developes two nemesis in this novel, Nicky Jnr and Staci.

A great read and one I recommend to anyone who enjoys a bit everything tossed in to a novel! I am looking forward to reading the second book.
