9780062248787: Chimera: A Jim Chapel Mission (Jim Chapel Missions)

Afghanistan veteran Jim Chapel has been enlisted in a new war, this time in his own backyard . . .

A band of fugitives has escaped from a secret military facility. Each has a target—an innocent civilian—and they will not stop until that target has been eliminated. Wounded Special Forces veteran Jim Chapel has been stuck behind a desk, but now medical technology has finally caught up with Chapel's ambitions, and combined with his unstoppable determination he'll get back to where he thrives: in the thick of the action.

Chapel must hunt down the escapees—all extremely deadly, genetically modified killers—and unravel the mystery behind their existence. Aided by a mysterious woman named Angel and a courageous, beautiful veterinarian, Chapel begins a cross-country hunt to stop the murders. But are the killers really rogues, or are they part of a sinister conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels?

About the Author:

David Wellington lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He is the author of the Monster Island trilogy of zombie novels; the Thirteen Bullets vampire series; the epic post-apocalyptic novel Positive; and the Jim Chapel missions, including the digital shorts “Minotaur” and “Myrmidon,” and the novels Chimera and The Hydra Protocol.

From Booklist:

The author of horror novels such as 32 Fangs (2012) and the Monster Island trilogy sticks a toe—or perhaps an entire foot—into Jonathan Maberry territory. Jim Chapel, who used to be in the Special Forces until he lost an arm in Afghanistan, is given a new job tracking down four escaped military detainees. Here’s the problem: the escapees are infected with a man-made virus, one that gives them superhuman abilities (and a taste for human flesh), and they are systematically hunting down and killing specific men and women across the country. Assisted by Angel, a brilliant computer hacker, and by the daughter of one of the victims, Chapel sets out not only to stop the escaped killers but also to find out why they were created in the first place. It’s a good book, crisply written and exciting, but readers familiar with Maberry’s Joe Ledger novels might experience a bit of been-there, done-that: the genetically modified killers; the tough, no-nonsense hero; the powerful government organization. On the other hand, if you’ve read all the Ledgers and are jonesing for more, this might take the edge off. --David Pitt
