The Pandora Equation

By Scott Reardon

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Only Tom Reese can stop the havoc unleashed by a band of unstable test subjects who've escaped from a secret government lab - because he is one of them.

In The Prometheus Man, Reese hunted down his brother's killers - and destroyed any chance at a normal life. He stole the identity of a CIA agent, exposed a grisly stem cell experiment to enhance the human body, and made himself an enemy of the United States. Now Tom lives on the run with the woman he loves, knowing he'll lose her one day because a life with him is a life without a future.

Thousands of miles away, in an abandoned oil rig off the Alaskan coast, a new Prometheus lab operates in secret. When the test subjects - all death-row inmates - revolt and slaughter their way out, the entire world is shocked and terrified. Knowing authorities will hunt them to the ends of the earth, they crash the power grid in half the continental U.S., and 100 million people are thrown into chaos.

As a nation collapses on itself, Tom is offered a deal: help bring in the men responsible, and he can come home. He signs on for a recon mission, but finds that it will take him to places and force him to do things far darker than he ever imagined.

Praise for The Prometheus Man — -
The Prometheus Man is a bullet-paced thriller that provokes fear, anger, and sympathy simultaneously, and makes us hope the world never lets this particular fiction turn into reality — Thomas Perry, Edgar Award winner and bestselling author of The Informant
The Prometheus Man is a phenomenal debut, full of non-stop action and thrills. With this bioengineered twist on Jason Bourne, Reardon offers a dark vision of covert work that may be closer to the present than we think. — Matthew Quirk, bestselling author of The 500 and Cold Barrel Zero
A winning international thriller that is as smart as it is suspenseful. Part Robert Ludlum, part Michael Crichton, with a contemporary spin all Scott Reardon's own, The Prometheus Man is flat-out a great read! — Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Deception
The Prometheus Man is not only a stellar debut, it's a rare find in the reading landscape: a fast-paced techno-thriller with well-realized characters and a beating heart. A lot of people are running around claiming to be the next Michael Crichton. Scott Reardon actually has the writing chops to pull it off. — Brad Parks, Shamus Award-winning author of Say Nothing
A debut thriller that succeeds...Many high-octane action scenes Reardon executes with skill. — Kirkus
Reardon has packed his debut with action, plot twists, and well-sketched characters...Recommend this one to readers of John Burdett's The Bangkok Asset — Booklist

He's a good detective... with a bad habit.'A down-and-dirty thriller with real heart from an author who knows what he's talking about. This is firmly in George Pelecanos territory and it doesn't get much better than that.' Mark Billingham on THE SECOND GIRLFrank Marr was a good cop, until his burgeoning addictions to alcohol and cocaine forced him into retirement from the D.C. Metro police. Now, he's barely eking out a living as a private investigator for a defense attorney - also Frank's ex-girlfriend.Ostracized by his family after a botched case that led to the death of his baby cousin, Jeffrey, Frank was on a collision course with rock bottom. Now clean and clinging hard to sobriety, Frank passes the time - and tests himself - by robbing the houses of local dealers, taking their cash and flushing their drugs down the toilet. When an old friend from his police days needs Frank's help to prove he didn't shoot an unarmed civilian, Frank is drawn back into the world of dirty cops and suspicious drug busts, running in the same circles that enabled his addiction those years ago.After years of devoting his considerable talents to hiding his secrets from others, Frank may find his investigative knack is no match for his worst adversary: himself.Praise for David Swinson:'David Swinson pulls off a masterly piece of characterization...The writing throws sparks, and the ferocious plot peels back layer after layer of Frank's character as we - and he - find out how much of his humanity is still left.' Tana French'A gripping, authentic tale (the author is an ex-cop) of a man's journey into the heart of darkness that will appeal to fans of The Wire' Shortlist'Frank Marr, the winningly debauched private investigator [is the] hero of this gritty thriller...A complex, vulnerable but brilliant creation, with a unique personal morality' Crime Scene Magazine
