Summary

Things aren’t always what they seem. Special Agent Max Prince and his boyfriend, Dr. Leo Reeves, are back to work after their first case together. When a prominent Department of Defense scientist kills himself in a mysterious way, their entire FBI team is tasked to figure out if the weapon he was working on was somehow the cause of his death. Things get even more interesting when SAC Lincoln Snow calls in old friends to help. Damon Thorne, formerly of the CIA, and Jarrett and Thayne from the ATF step up to help on the premise that their case might have a link to biological terrorism. But it's so much worse.

Seventy years ago, the CIA began an illegal human experimentation program, code named MK-ULTRA, and the more Leo and Max learn about what Dr. Cummings has been doing for the DOD, the closer they draw parallels to the defunct program.

These experiments aren’t the only things the government scientist has been working on. When Jarrett and Thayne go exploring at his house, they discover a secret room which promises to reveal the true nature of what’s happening, and it’s worse than they could’ve imagined. Evil always targets the most vulnerable.

Just when they think they’ve figured out what’s going on, an old nemesis from the FBI steps in with instructions to shut it all down and take over. All Max knows is that the sudden appearance of a guy their whole team hates can’t be good, especially when he starts throwing his weight around. Something else is going on here, and a cover up is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. To top it all off, an embarrassing ex, an accidental poisoning, multiple break-ins, and a couple of bad guys acting like ninjas add to the utter chaos of this case which promises to be stranger than life on Mars. After all—truth is stranger than fiction.

Wow! Fantastic!

Have I already said that I love this series? That's why I was very happy about another book with Special Agent Max Prince and Dr. Leo Reeves. I recommend to read the books in order, because then you understand the relationship between the two of them and also the team and its dynamics better.
The story is entertaining, I love the mix between suspense and romance. There is a mysterious case to solve. A suicide that is questionable. The developments that follow are extremely interesting. Who has his fingers in the pie? The team has no idea how close the danger really is. And who is friend, who is enemy?
The story scores with some surprising twists that I didn't expect as well as believable protagonists and an entertaining storyline. And in general, you have to pay close attention, because there's a lot going on, but that's what I think is really cool. This is not an easy case for the team to solve and I love it when it gets more complicated. The team includes Leo and Max as well as members of the ATF which is great because I love meeting characters from other series.
The writing is wonderful as always and as soon as I listened to a few minutes I was right in the middle of Max and Leo. They are hot together and you can feel their deep connection to each other. I was captivated by the story from beginning to end.
I listened to the audiobook and once started, it was really hard to pause the audiobook once in between. Michael Dean did a phenomenal job bringing the story to life with his pleasant voice. I absolutely recommend this audiobook and hope to see Leo and Max again soon!

Plots and counterplots

Always great to join up with Max, Leo and all the others and having been interested in the actual history of the MKULTRA program and other things going on during that time period, I couldn't wait to see how Patricia Logan would develop this plot. I knew the characters, and I as a reader, were going to be appalled by the actions taken in an attempt at a cover up by several characters here. I loved every minute of this. Michael Dean does a great job with all the characters.

Fantastic!

I really loved this book! As usual, the characters were interesting with diverse personalities and backgrounds. I also liked the comradery between the agents. The book held my interest from beginning to end with a few surprises thrown in. The narrator was great as well. He gave each character a distinct voice and emotions when the story called for it. I am looking forward to the next book.

Another thrilling story in this series!

I don’t know how Patricia Logan comes up with all of the stories she writes but I hope she never stops. Life on Mars was another rollercoaster thrill ride that started off with a very attention getting scene. From there the action never stopped.

I really can’t describe the story any better than the blurb does so take a look if you want the details about the story. I’ll just say that this time it’s not only Max and Leo who are in peril. I can’t even imagine the amount of research that was done for this story. Not that I know anything about all of the scientific stuff contained in the book, but it all seemed very plausible to me.

Once I started listening to this story I couldn’t stop. Michael Dean’s audio performance was right on target with voices for each character that were easy to distinguish.

I loved the teaser for the next book in this series. A Clown Car Full Of Sovereigns, and can’t wait to read and/or listen to it!

A copy of this book was provided to me at my request and my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.
