Condition Black Kindle Edition
"Like Dark Matter by Blake Crouch, this book is revolutionary. Incredible." Jonas Saul, author of the best-selling Sarah Roberts series.
"Condition Black provides such an exceptional read. It's highly recommended for fans of technothrillers who want a firm marriage between psychological depth and unpredictable action, all grounded by ethical concerns that challenge each character to reach beyond his skill set and comfort zone." Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

This story is fast paced and action packed. While a game of chess between a John Hopkins researcher and an army veteran might not seem the most thrilling, it is. When it’s a fight between life and death – of not only yourself and your loved ones but everyone everywhere – you can’t afford to make mistakes. Every action has consequences and every step you take counts.
If you’re looking for a feel good book that’s going to make you smile, this isn’t it. But. If you’re looking for a thrilling, action packed read, you should check this story out.
Added to this the fact that Evan is on the spectrum, I truly believe that this book has amazing neuro-divergent representation. I cannot speak for Autistic people as I am not Autistic myself, but as a neuro-divergent person myself I definitely related to the way Evan looks at and interacts with the world. While I read I found myself nodding along to some of the ways that Evan dealt with being over stimulated and hyper fixating on things. More books need amazing representation like this.
Evan Weyland is a brilliant research scientist working on new technologies to fight cancer. Evan is also on the autism spectrum. His wife, Marie is world renown foreign war correspondent and the light of his life. When Marie returns from Syria with an unknown bacterial disease, Evan will do anything to save her.
Captain Billy Vick is in the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command and has an unwavering sense of justice. Billy still flashes back to the horrors of past deployments and the death of his best-friend, but his loving wife and sons keep him grounded and are the reasons he took a position stateside. Billy’s unit receives intel that ties the return of a sick journalist from Syria with an air-strike sanctioned by the US on Syrian civilians. He fears a military project called Omega has resurfaced and it can kill millions.
Both men are pitted against each other as Evan tries to save his wife and Billy tries to stop him.
WOW! This is an intense, edge-of-your-seat thriller that was impossible for me to put down. The state of the US in this book and all the ethical questions regarding both personal freedoms and bio-medical research and uses bring a scary realism to this thriller. Evan’s characteristics and depiction show the authors did their research on people on the autism spectrum. Billy is a patriot and hero who believes in doing the right thing no matter the consequences. Even as they are pitted against each other, you cheer for both of them. The plot has many unexpected twists and leaves you with many thought-provoking ethical questions with memorable characters, good and bad.
I highly recommend this standalone thriller! I am looking forward to reading more from these authors.
