Generation 18, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Though neither event seems related, Agents Sam Ryan and Gabriel Stern quickly discover a link between the two - the military base known as Hopeworth.

But are the serial killings a military cover-up that has gone dangerously wrong, or is there a deeper, more personal reason behind the murders of the red-headed adoptees?

As the investigation continues, Sam discovers a connection between herself and the murder victims - a connection that implies a link to Hopeworth itself.

With the killings escalating and the danger drawing closer to home, Sam not only has to battle to bring a killer to justice, but also has to save Gabriel's life. And the one person who seems to hold the key to what is going on, as well as what has happened in Sam's past, is the mysterious man who saved her life.

But does she dare believe his words or the dreams she seems to share with him? Because this mystery man may not be just her enemy, but the enemy of humankind itself.

The middle book or a trilogy, and doesn't it show!Gabriel is trying to freeze Sam out, and whilst his reasons make sense and are explored, we all know it's a waste of time which makes it rather annoying.They learn more about the military experiments that gave birth to Sam and they're starting to acquire hints about what she might be (although they're distressing dim for cops about putting the pieces together).Despite these moans it's fast, engaging and most of the time it's fun. It could be better, but it's not a waste of time either.

Number 2 in Australian author Keri Arthur's ‘Spook Squad’ series. Former policewoman Sam Ryan is now an agent working for the Spook Squad. She must discover the link between a serial killer that is striking every twelve hours and a vampire-like Kite monster that seemingly murders at random. Investigations lead to the Hopeworth military base and a cover-up that involves Sam and the past she cannot remember. Are the murders of red-headed adoptees like herself connected to her past? What about the increase in her paranormal talents and the strange man Joshua who haunts her dreams? Sam’s shape-shifter partner Gabriel Stern doesn’t want her in danger, but when his life is on the line Sam must do all she can to save him and uncover more about Hopeworth’s genetic experiments known as Generation 18 and Penumbra. Interesting, but a quick read.
