Knight Ranger, and the creator of the weapon, Dr. Hakim Okafor, to Berlin to investigate.
Neal and Okafor encounter a deep cover G.E.N.E.S.I.S. agent with dubious objectives and an heiress with a scheme to disrupt the political landscape of unified Germany. Worse, the heiress has thrown in with a megalomaniac who plots to use secret Nazi technology from World War II to corner the global energy market. Can Neal and Okafor thwart this powerhouse alliance? And how will they cope when an even greater evil surfaces?
Here’s the latest review for Codename: Knight Ranger! “There are enemies that exist beyond general human awareness and comprehension; enemies thought to be products of lore and nightmares. The premise of Codename: Knight Ranger, an exciting science fiction thriller written by John F. Allen, is that monsters are real. Werewolves, vampires and a variety of creatures thought to be frightful products of human imaginings are indeed substantive…and lethal. A select group of humans are at war with these monsters. Ranger Captain Alexandre Du Bois becomes an unwilling participant in this invisible war when his unit in Afghanistan is ambushed. The captain suffers catastrophic injuries. In fact ‘catastrophic’ drastically understates his condition. Du Bois dies but is brought back to life by means that becomes key to his subsequent alteration. Thanks to an enigmatic organization led by a mysterious mastermind named Bishop, Du Bois is outfitted with a new body complete with enhanced capabilities, a kind of six million man on mega doses of steroids. To top it off, he’s provided with a super durable armored suit, packed with enough fire power to shred an army. But the transition from ordinary man to ultra-soldier becomes a jarring shock to Du Bois’ senses. Not to mention the costs that his commitment as an ultra soldier entails, a cost that deeply embitters him. Having never consented to this transformation, Du Bois bears enmity toward the person responsible for his condition: Bishop. Nevertheless, Du Bois is a soldier, and he will do his duty, because if he doesn’t, the monsters win. Knight Ranger is a short but delightfully satisfying read. The build-up leading to Du Bois’ demonstration of his abilities gives the reader a rich insight into his state of mind. There is a lot of flashy hi tech in this book which I enthusiastically imbibed like literary crack. When Du Bois finally goes into the field, the action is hyper fast, hard hitting and explosive. I’ll expect no less of the sequel.”
