"Farrugia! Bringin' the awesome from the first headshot to the last 'splosion." – John Birmingham, author of the Axis of Time and Disappearance trilogies.
The Fifth Column: the world's most powerful and secretive organization. They run our militaries. They run our governments. They run our terrorist cells.
Recruited as a child, Sophia is a deniable operative for the Fifth Column. Like all operatives, Sophia's DNA has been altered to augment her senses and her mind is splintered into programmed subsets.
On a routine mission in Iran something goes catastrophically wrong. Bugs are beginning to appear in Sophia's programming and the mission spins out of control.
High-speed chases, gun fights, helicopter battles, immortal psychopaths, super soldiers and mutant abilities are all in the mix in this edge-of-your-seat action-packed techno-thriller.
Perfect for fans of Matthew Reilly, The Chimera Vector melds sci-fi with sizzling espionage action.

The Chimera Vector
A great read for fans of the military thriller genre. The pages turn before you know it. Lots of twists, nice detail and great characters.
Pacy and hilarious
I'm not a huge techno-thriller fan, but I found this book so fun that I'm recommending it to everyone. It's very humorous, fast-paced and full of unexpected twists - but the characters and their quirks are the best bit about the book. Oh, and the explosions, of course.
Best read in a very long time
It has been a while since I have read a book this colourful with the language, almost feel like I am part of the scene. Look forward to the next book.
