Author: David E. Stevens
Publisher: Monarch Books
October 2012
ISBN: 978-0857212498
Genre: Thriller

Book 1 in the Resurrect Trilogy.

Preventing his burning fighter from crashing into a neighborhood, Navy Commander Josh Logan ejects ... too late. Critically injured, he's offered a new life and mission exploit highly classified military technology to stop a global cataclysm. The price? He'll be dead to everyone he knows.
He wakes in a city hospital with a genetically enhanced body and no identity. With the help of his brilliant, Neuro ICU nurse, and guided by nothing but a voice, he must infiltrate the military-industrial complex to develop the world's most powerful weapon ... to protect humanity? 

This book was rather a disappointment for me.  I was initially intrigued by the concepts being advanced by the author, but quickly lost my interest.  The plot was very slow-moving, the technical aspects of the book were explained rather awkwardly, and the scenes changed very abruptly.  I think what bothered me most about the book was the inappropriate amount of attention that was devoted to aspects of the main character, his “new body,” and all that that entailed.  In my opinion, when you major on the minors, the minors become major.  Several scenes completely stopped the flow of the action, and you were left with images that would be best left unimagined.  For these reasons, I would not recommend this book. 

The writing is good. Stellar. It would make an excellent movie. 5 stars for that.

The part I mentioned, 1 star. Average – 3 stars..
