A brilliant physicist, keen-eyed NASA investigator, fearless pilot, and aspiring astronaut, Captain Calli Chase is in many ways a spiritual heir to Scarpetta. She’s also a twin, and the mystery that fuels this story centers around the whereabouts and potentially sinister activities of her sister, Carme, a decorated military officer who also aspires to the stars. In trying to clear her sister’s name, Calli will be forced to reckon with secrets from her past as well as a vast conspiracy that puts national security in jeopardy.
A high-stakes thriller that blends groundbreaking technology, complex twists, and a compelling emotional story, Quantum launches us into the world of Captain Chase at Mach speed, with a cliffhanger ending that left me eagerly awaiting the sequel, Spin, which releases next summer. I can’t wait to see where Patricia takes us then.
