HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD YOU KILL TO LIVE FOREVER?

Imagine a world where soldiers regenerate and continue fighting without pause, where suicide bombers live to strike again and again. This is the dream of Richard Ridley, founder of Manifold Genetics, and he has just discovered the key to eternal life: an ancient artifact buried beneath a Greek-inscribed stone in the Peruvian desert.

When Manifold steals the artifact and abducts archeologist Dr. George Pierce, United States Special Forces Delta operator Jack Sigler, call sign King, and his “Chess Team” —Queen, Knight, Rook, Bishop, and their handler, Deep Blue—give chase. Formed under special order from President Duncan, they are the best of America’s Special Forces, tasked with antiterrorism missions that take them around the world against any threat, ancient, modern, and at times, inhuman. With cutting-edge weapons, tough-as-nails tactics, and keen intellects, they stand alone on the brink, facing the world’s most dangerous threats.

Ridley’s plan to create unstoppable soldiers has just made him threat number one. Tension soars along with the body count as the team faces high-tech security forces, hordes of “regens,” the horrific results of Manifold’s experiments, and a resurrected mythological predator complete with regenerative abilities, seven heads, and a savage appetite. The Chess Team races to save Pierce and stop Manifold before they change the face of genetics—and human history—forever.

Heart-pounding action combines with adrenaline-charged suspense in the first of Jeremy Robinson’s smart, sharp series featuring the Chess Team.

Peru, 2006

 Todd Maddox stepped out of the Eurocopter EC 155 and ducked instinctively as the rotor blades continued chopping theair above him. The flight from LAX in Los Angeles to Captain Rolden International Airport in Peru had been uneventful, and the copter ride from the airport to this unknown destination blessedly smooth. But discomfort struck him hard as he exited the copter’s air- conditioned interior and entered the humid jungle air of eastern Peru’s Amazon rain forest.

 His sunflower yellow shirt became like sticky, wet papier-

REVIEWS

Praise for Pulse

Advance Praise for Pulse:

"Pulse contains all of the danger, treachery, and action a reader could wish for.  Its band of heroes are gutsy and gritty.  Jeremy Robinson has one wild imagination, slicing and stitching his tale together with the deft hand of a surgeon.  Robinson's impressive talent is on full display in this one."  --Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Charlemagne

"Jeremy Robinson's latest novel, Pulse, ratchets his writing to the next level. Rocket-boosted action, brilliant speculation, and the recreation of a horror out of the mythologic past, all seamlessly blend into a rollercoaster ride of suspense and adventure." --James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle

"Raiders of the Lost Arc meets Tom Clancy meets Saturday matinee monster flick with myths, monsters, special ops supermen and more high tech weapons than a Bond flick. Pulse is an over-the-top, bullet-ridden good time." --Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Contagious and Infected

"Greek myth and biotechnology collide in Robinson's first in a new thriller series to feature the Chess Team... Robinson will have readers turning the pages..." --Publishers Weekly

"Robinson’s latest reads like a video game with tons of action and lots of carnage....The combination of mythology, technology, and high-octane action proves irresistible." --Booklist

"Here’s a neat twist: a young adventure thriller writer--whose heroes save the world--saves the world of adventure thrillers. In a genre glutted with popcorn gimmicks and tired rip-offs, Jeremy Robinson dares to craft old-fashioned guilty pleasures--far horizons, ancient maps, and classic monsters--hardwired for the 21st century. There's nothing timid about Robinson as he drops his readers off the cliff without a parachute and somehow manages to catch us an inch or two from doom." --Jeff Long, New York Times bestselling author of The Descent and Year Zero

“I think Pulse is Jeremy Robinson’s best yet. A really intriguing premise, frightening consequences, wrapped up in roaring adventure.” --Stel Pavlou, bestselling author of Decipher

“An elite task force must stop a genetic force of nature in the form of the legendary Hydra in this latest Jeremy Robinson thriller.  Yet another page-turner!” --Steve Alten, New York Times bestselling author of The Loch and MEG: Hell’s Aquarium
