Publisher's Summary

Over 2,000 5-star reviews! Called "A Terrifically Entertaining Thriller!" by Publishers Weekly, Book-1 of the Brainrush series was named The Wall Street Journal #1 Bestselling Action/Adventure in their "Guide to Self-Published Big Sellers", while Book 2 held a death grip on the #1 or #2 slots of the Amazon Top-Rated (best reviewed) Mystery/Thrillers list for 10 straight months. This set the stage for the blockbuster release of the final book in the trilogy, which was heralded by Suspense magazine as "part science fiction, part thriller, part suspense, part love story, and part mystery. It's got it all and that's what makes this novel one of the best."

Before he slid into the MRI machine, Jake Bronson was just an ordinary guy with terminal cancer. But when an earthquake hits during the procedure, Jake staggers from the wreckage a profoundly changed man, now endowed with uncanny mental abilities. An ocean away, Luciano Battista wants a piece of Jake's talent. Posing as a pioneering scientist, the terrorist leader has been conducting cerebral-implant experiments in a sinister quest to create a breed of super jihadist agents...and Jake's altered brain may be the key to his success. But Jake refuses to play the pawn in an unholy war - and when an innocent woman and autistic child are taken hostage to force his cooperation, he embarks on a jihad of his own.

Jake and his band of loyal friends are thrust into a deadly chase that leads from the canals of Venice through Monte Carlo and finally to an ancient cavern in the Hindu Kush mountains of Afghanistan - where Jake discovers that his newfound talents carry a hidden price that threatens the entire human race.

The wild ride continues from the beaches of California to a raging underground river in Mexico, the rain forests of Venezuela, the Mediterranean coast, the Swiss Alps, and finally to a secret southeast Asia island, where Jake must lever every scrap of his failing brain to prevent an apocalyptic disaster.

    "The Brainrush Trilogy - this is not a Suspense novel"

    The Brainrush Trilogy - this is not a Suspense novel
    The novel is a action triller with some sci-fi
    Not my cup of tea as I'm not really into action/military novel, I
    would have given up on book 1 if it wasn't for the excellent
    narration by RC Bray

    "Far fetched nonsense"

    Well narrated but just a silly, overblown, over emotional fantasy rather like a kids comic.

    "Headline "RC Bray damages his credibility""

    This is the Mills and Boon of Boy books, pulp fiction in its purest form. I hope the paycheck was worth the dent in my opinion of you Mr Bray.

    "Really enjoyed."

    Really enjoyed this book set. I was a little unsure going in, as it seemed a little more fantasy than my usual books, but I was highly surprised.

    There was lots of action from the get go, no sooner had we met Jake and his dire circumstances than the whole world was rocked apart and his life drastically changed.

    There was intense character development, and interaction between friends, and those who just seemed to get involved, especially those in the military side of the story.

    Through all 3 books there were huge obstacles, and fights. It got more Sci-Fi than fantasy and I was very happy with the outcome, most of the time I was sat on the edge of my driving seat while listening. So much to go wrong, so many of our fav characters to get injured, or die! eeek.

    Almost tempted to get the next few in the series, but I've just got them on my wishlist for now, as I've more than a few to get through. :) I'll defo be back for some more, thanks Richard and of course to RC I'm a huge fan.

    "Non-stop action. Great story and characters"

    Best trilogy I've ever read. Can't wait to start book 4. The author has a way of describing imagery and situations so you can picture them clearly in your mind; transporting you to that exact place or situation. Phenomenal.

    "Grew Tiresome"

    The narrator did a great job but he can only do so much with the story he has to work with. I purchased the trilogy because it was a box set, 3 for 1, and it had some decent reviews. By 2 hours into the second book it was like relistening to book 1 again, same plot, same bad guy, same stupidity by the protagonist.

    The hero is supposed to be the most evolved, most intelligent man alive, yet is constantly out witted by the bad guy, who won't die. This super smart person allows himself to be druged and lose his faculties, which puts him in bad situations, over, and over, and over again. He finds himself at the hands of his enemies that desperately want him dead, but instead of killing him, they monologue, over, and over, and over this allowing the hero to escape.

    Book 3, more of the same. The super human hero is out witted, druged, trapped by monologuing bad guy. I got to the point where I have spaced out but don't care to go back and relisten to what I missed. Wrapped up in the middle of it alllove 2 super cheesy love stories.

    At this point, I have 4 hours left and I am just trying to make myself finish. I have over 150 books in my library and have only struggled this much with 1 other book. R.C. Gray does a great job, just not a lot to work with in my opinion. I cannot see it garnering the praise described in the publishers summary.

    "Predictable"

    It gets to the point where you just shake your head and say oh of course the cell phone is low on batteries or of course there is no gas in the gas can.. its so very frustrating listening to these obvious plot points just used to try and make things more suspenseful but only makes you pissed off. I stopped counting but eventually I got to one "Oh, C'Mon!!" Too many and stopped listening.
