“Audacious and terrifying—and uncannily believable.”
—Lee Child

New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series, Lee Child, was blown away by The Breach—and you will be, too! A novel of unrelenting suspense and nonstop surprises, The Breach immediately rockets author Patrick Lee into the V.I.P. section of the thriller universe. A treat for Jack Bauer (“24”) fans and “X-Files” aficionados, it is a white-knuckle roller-coaster ride that combines the best of Dean Koontz and Michael Crichton with a healthy dollop of Indiana Jones thrown into the mix—the perfect secret agent/government conspiracy/supernatural adventure.

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Gurner narrates the fast-moving story in a style that gives the plot credibility. His characterizations of both Chase and his love interest are subtle but effective. His calm reading lends additional horror to the graphic descriptions of violence, providing a gripping listen.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy | 2/19/2014

    " This book was enjoying to read. More like watching a tv show than reading a book. I liked it enough to buy the 2nd book in the series as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandeep Deb | 2/9/2014

    " Good book... kind of stands apart in the thought process "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/8/2014

    " Good read! Really kept my interest. I would be interested in looking into the next one. Thanks Heidi for recommending this great book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jank | 2/5/2014

    " Different-very enjoyable! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy C | 2/4/2014

    " A novel that takes you into a sci-fi world and makes you believe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nichole | 1/27/2014

    " This book combines action, sci fi, and excitement all in one. I couldn't put the book down. I can't wait to start the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 1/14/2014

    " I enjoyed this book, but it's really confusing. It's time travel but no one does the traveling. It's alien artifacts but the aliens aren't identified. It's government conspiracies and futuristic science...bombs and guns, kidnapping, brainwashing, torture and all sorts of things. Lots of it doesn't make sense, but characters in the book are constantly acknowledging that it doesn't make sense. So you just have to let go of your disbelief and hang on for the ride, from Alaska to Switzerland to Grand Cayman, from the past to the present to the future, with bits of amnesia thrown into the mix. Travis Chase, the steadfast hero, manages to avoid emotional meltdown in situations where anyone, including Conan the Barbarian, would be pounding the ground and screaming. But it's just part of the fun. The heroine, Paige Campbell, is steelier than any heroine and tougher than most gamma heroes. There are an endless number of good guys, bad guys and ordinary citizens of Zurich who get wiped out, mowed down and annihilated. But never mind...it's a good read. Because the plot is so confusing, I don't recommend this for a beach read. You have to try to keep track, even though you won't be able to follow it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Guad | 1/11/2014

    " An absolutely awesome novel. The ending was totally NOT what I anticipated. I really cant wait for the continuing adventure of Mr. Travis Chase. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 1/10/2014

    " Really liked the book. Plot hard to buy but the adventure itself was great. First in a series. Next one comes out in Nov. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan Mahlman | 1/9/2014

    " Too slow for me - and too technical. Was a great start and then the "Breach" ended up being so far beyond my imagination that I couldn't stick with it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 1/3/2014

    " The Breach was a little too far out there for my tastes, but it was a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Hendricks | 12/30/2013

    " Part terrorist thriller, part James Rollins, part X-Files, part John Ringo, this fast-moving thriller runs about 1000mph through twists and turns...characters are good and it's an excellent start for an ongoing series...looking forward to book 2, "Ghost Country" in the fall.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Pallagi | 12/25/2013

    " Tremendous. Light sci-fi solidly anchored in a contemporary setting. Nice set pieces. Solid narrative. Pure pleasure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Axel Beyer | 12/13/2013

    " I am torn between 4 and 5 stars. It's been a while since I read a book with a pace like this. There is no suspense curve - the suspense is just high the entire time. Which sounds perfect, but is tiresome at times. Characters stay shallow. Still, what a ride! I'm excited for volume two. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fran | 12/3/2013

    " Great techno thriller "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Lanheady | 12/1/2013

    " Wow...this story takes off immediately and leads you on a wild ride! The density of tech detail in the middle bogged me down a bit but then it picked up speed again right through to the end. I can't wait to read the next two! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patricia | 9/24/2013

    " I love a book when I can't predict what is going to happen. And this is definitely one of those kind of books. Looking forward to reading the next one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Valerie | 3/14/2013

    " I haven't finished this book. It had some strong language so I stopped reading it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joe Reto | 11/5/2012

    " Book is very violent. Not my kind of read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian Hoerner | 5/30/2012

    " A great first book by this author. A little lacking in predictability for me but good none the less. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Loock | 5/12/2012

    " Overall very enjoyable, quite intriguing, fast action-heavy thriller. Bit too violent for my taste, but I'm already reading the next in the series because I just have to know how the story continues. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob Hanson | 4/7/2012

    " Lee Child apparently said this book is "audacious and terrifying, uncannily believable." Lee Child is insane. This book was a quick read that was far-fetched but fun. It was perfect for a day on the boat. I'm planning to read the sequels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elton | 1/2/2012

    " a fun little techno-thriller. Nothing that's going to change the world, but great fun anyway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B Kevin | 11/17/2011

    " IT was an interesting bit of escapism for a dreary weekend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 5/9/2011

    " A rip roaring action adventure that kept me interested right to the very end. A great holiday read (or any other time, too.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Markii | 4/27/2011

    " Fun sci-fi book! Gets exponentially better in the second half. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becka | 4/21/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. it moved quickly and it was complex and really kept my attention. i couldn't put it down after a certain point. It was just nonstop action with the twist at the end. i can't wait to read the next book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas | 4/20/2011

    " Jeff Gurner as narrator (audiobook) weaves a fantastic tale. Patrick has a wonderfuly twisted imagination. Great book. Stargate Universe meets Fringe meets Scott Sigler meets Lee Driver. Highly recommend this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reggie | 3/30/2011

    " Great book. Not for the technically challenged. Full of action with so many twists and plot developments that I got a whiplash. Liked it and plan to read the sequel. Good author to help fill the void left by Chichtons passing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chad | 3/29/2011

    " I liked this book a lot. It started fast and just kept going. Ending was great and instantly has me hooked for the sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dale | 3/28/2011

    " Loved it - I read over four-fifths of it in a single day, as I couldn't put it down.

    Great sci-fi thriller, with some interesting plot twists. Think "X-Files" (when it was still good) but with more action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katy | 3/25/2011

    " One of the best stories I've read in a while! Awesome blend of action, adventure, science fiction, with a plot that will keep you riveted and wanting more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 3/14/2011

    " 4.5 stars. This was a really enjoyable read - very imaginative, lots of action as well. It could have been twice as many pages and still held my attention. It would probably make a good movie :-)

    Anyway, I do plan on buying the sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Graham | 3/7/2011

    " Quite liked the characters and found the first half of the book very gripping. I found my concentration wandering once they reached Theatrestrasse when the puzzles were all-too easily worked out, the locals became almost zombie-like and attacked them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 3/4/2011

    " A. this was a fun, fast page-turner with a well-paced plot that keep me entertained the entire time. quick suspension of disbelief, and i love a good action read every once in awhile. "

    " Good science fiction story with plenty of action. "

    " Gripping, original premis with just enough mystery, alien technology (oophs did I give something away?) and action to keep it interesting. "

About the Author
Author Patrick Lee

Patrick Lee was born and raised in west Michigan. He spent four and a half years at a two-year college and wishes he was kidding about that. In his twenties, he sold two screenplays to film studios in Los Angeles, but neither was produced. Who’d have guessed that a modern retelling of Lysistrata, set in a maximum-security prison, would fail to get a greenlight? In his early thirties, Patrick made the jump to writing novels, managed to get the coolest agent in the business, and is now the proud author of several published works.

He has appeared in productions on and off Broadway such as The Lion King, Five Course Love, The London Cuckolds, and Harrigan & Hart.
