Book Description:

The Austin Paradox continues the remarkable saga of Robert James Austin in a gripping emotionally-charged thriller that explores the most compelling issues of our time.

Having lost his extraordinary intellectual powers in a laboratory explosion that was intended to kill him, Dr. Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in history, whose medical cures saved countless millions, struggles to find meaning in a life that has become devoid of purpose.

As he embarks on a journey of self-discovery in an effort to regain his abilities, Austin battles private demons, otherworldly forces, and a government obsessed with controlling him. When ruthless political and business interests align to pose an existential threat to humanity, Austin is thrust into the maelstrom.

Doubted even by those who love him, Austin is confronted by a harrowing paradox as time runs out to save mankind from extinction.

The Austin Paradox is the sequel to the critically acclaimed, award-winning novel, Miracle Man, which was named by Amazon as One of the Top 100 Novels of 2015, a Top 10 Best Selling Thriller and a Top 10 New York Times/Amazon Best Seller.

My Review

This book is the follow up to Miracle Man, book one. If you have not read book one, it is recommended that you do so. This is so that you can fully appreciate and understand the dynamics between all of the characters. In this book, a lot of the events are due to the outcome of the prior novel.

Christina is still hanging by Robert's side. They share a child together and love each other. Yet, when I talk about people who love Robert, I can't forget to mention Susan. She has been Robert's right hand gal for years. On the opposite side there are the people who hate Robert. Gunther Ramirez was hired to kill Robert by Colum McAlister in the prior novel. It seems that Colum still wants Robert out of the picture.

Director Varneys of the CIA wants Robert to work for him now that his abilities are back. He wants him to build an undetectable cyber infiltration system that he can use to fight against terrorist and hackers.

The book starts out at a nice, steady pace. Not a lot of action going on but it was good to catch up with everyone and where they are now. This is especially nice for me as it was a long lapse between reading the first book and this book that I kind of forgot some things. Once, I found my groove, I was golden.

The story does start picking up speed as it moves along and by the half way point, it was really moving at a faster pace. There is kind of three points of views within this story. There is Robert's, Director Varneys, and Colum. Yet, the author does a nice job of making all of these points of views intertwine together to make one flowing storyline. I have thoroughly enjoyed both of these books.
