"A Dubious Device", by Gerald J. Kubicki & Kristopher Kubicki
It took a bit of time before I was sucked into this suspense. A bit redundant the first quarter of the mystery recounting the backstories of each characters at length, this may be a good strategy for those picking up this series at this point but after 10 books I knew all this already and wanted to get to the meat of the story. I almost gave up, thank fully it turned mid-way and provided a very exciting story about a conspiracy to take over the US Government and install a dictator using nanobots.
I must give The Kubickis A+ for their fertile imagination and the knack for providing just enough futuristic views to make their stories a fun read. Their style is indeed cool and young at heart. Their stories are action packed, have over the board characterization, some have a tad of humour and some may also have crazy sex scenes (not this one and I was glad for the break). In “A Dubious Device”, the story is not overly complicated but is vividly describe for effects. Once the scenario of this sci-fi robotic thriller kicked in there were no dull moments, it became fast paced, exciting and captivating till the end.
Colton is still at war with “The Effort” the group behind the nanobots attack but as always he is well prepared to deal with those evil people and of course the good guys will win at the end.
Fun read if you into this type of story.
