EXODUS 2022 (book)

Exodus 2022Exodus 2022 by Kenneth G. Bennett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

BOOK DESCRIPTION: IS HE LOSING HIS MIND-- OR HIS WORLD?
Joe Stanton is in agony. Out of his mind over the death of his young daughter. Unable to contain his grief, Joe loses control in public, screaming his daughter's name and causing a huge scene at a hotel on San Juan Island in Washington State.
Thing is, Joe Stanton doesn't have a daughter. Never did. And when the authorities arrive they blame the 28-year-old's outburst on drugs. What they don't yet know is that others up and down the Pacific coast-- from the Bering Sea to the Puget Sound-- are suffering identical, always fatal mental breakdowns.
With the help of his girlfriend, Joe struggles to unravel the meaning of the hallucination destroying his mind. As the couple begins to perceive its significance-- and Joe's role in a looming global calamity-- they must also outwit a billionaire weapons contractor bent on exploiting Joe's newfound understanding of the cosmos, and outlast the time bomb ticking in Joe's brain.

MY REVIEW: Really enjoyed this intriguing eco, sci-fi thriller. The premise is original and contemporary. Lost a touch of its tension during the latter part of the book but, overall, a page-turner. Lots of twists and turns, a great cast of characters, and well plotted. Even if you are not into sci-fi, give this one a go...
