Author interview

Bleicher’s excellent near-future thriller blends nail-biting action with a highly imaginative premise. UN Solar Shield Project Corps (SSPC) Officers Kelly O’Rourke and Jay Bhattachar get entangled in a global conspiracy after a pair of Manhattan criminals trick a Wuhan computer firm into hacking the SSPC’s master computer. With the risk of the UN’s ambitious environmental project becoming vulnerable to international hackers, Commander Fauré sends Jay, Kelly, and senior UN Security Officer Cheng to track down the criminals in Wuhan. The trio begin their mission, unaware of the perilous dangers that lie ahead. Bleicher’s writing is assured, prose crisp, and he executes the intricate plot which consists of several mini sub plots and a large cast of characters with perfect ease while navigating a horde of shocking revelations. The narrative ties that bind various players in the story stay intact over the novel’s course, and the intriguing, realistically portrayed interplay among the main characters, especially the romantic tension that lingers between Jay and Kelly keeps the reader thoroughly invested. Along the way, Bleicher brings to his story a passionate concern for the environment with the UN’s global project aimed at lessening the effects of climate warming. This eco-conscious near-future conspiracy thriller that splendidly stretches the limits of human imagination is sure to ignite thriller readers’ interest.
