Former Chicago Detective Jordan Pierce put his life on hold in order to protect America's secret weapon against the Nazis; The Manhattan Project. But he can't protect himself from the disease eating away at his humanity. Jordan discovers how much of his soul this infection has devoured when he falls in love with the woman who could destroy America. Choosing her means choosing the monster he's becoming, making him the most powerful man he's ever known.
Chain Reaction is a novel most readers won’t forget any time soon after they have finished reading it. The premise had me intrigued from the start as I am a huge World War II buff and I like to read about this turbulent era in world history.
The novel focuses primarily Jordan Pierce, a former police officer, and Gladys Nichols, a scientist who is extremely sexually attracted to but he has no way of knowing her true motives and thus, it makes it hard for him to trust her.
The paranormal aspect of the novel comes in almost immediately as Jordan was attacked while still a police officer in Chicago and an infection has taken hold of his body but he has no idea what it is and why his cravings for food, beverages and nicotine are no longer an issue for him.
This novel is filled with intrigue and the writers do a very good job weaving real life history with a classic paranormal story that will have you reading all the way until the end. This is not breezy summertime reading but if you are looking for something more substantial this fall or winter to sink your teeth into, I highly suggest this novel.
