THE PERFECT WEAPON LAY BURIED FOR 70 YEARS. NOW ITS DEADLY POWER HAS BEEN UNLEASHED.
The Norwegian Sea: a group of eco-activists disappear from their vessel. Only their dental fillings remain.
Owl Mountains, Poland: a wealthy environmentalist resurrects a secret experiment forgotten since the close of the Second World War, determined to heal our ravaged planet.
When a dossier finds its way to the desk of Dr. Neil Aldridge, the elite EU special forces team codenamed KESTREL is drawn into a dangerous pursuit across Europe and beyond, to prevent a cull of Earth's greatest threat: humanity.
As the final countdown begins, Captain Jessica Greenwood faces the ultimate choice: fight to prevent the dark future ahead, or help make it happen…
A page-turning technological thriller with elements of fringe science and conspiracy, TOLL is book 2 in the KESTREL action-adventure thriller series, but can also be read as a stand-alone novel.
“The second book is the hardest,” but Gemmell delivered remarkably well. This installation kept all the excitement of the original book while showing growth and adding a more nuanced, complicated antagonist. Definitely would recommend.
Better than the first book in series
Toll is an improvement over Changer, the author’s first book. Plot is tighter, though it still has its problems. Character development is more assured, except for a not-very-interesting romantic subplot, which doesn’t serve the plot. Author is developing as a writer; we’ll see what future books bring in terms of craft and new takes on tried-and-true thriller tropes.
Great read. Quick pace. Characters you care about and a story line that could almost be real today. Looking forward to #3
