Reminiscent of the works of James Rollins, Preston and Child and Matthew Reilly, "Ripper" is the latest in an action-packed series about the nation's most secret agency - The Event Group. In 1887, the British Empire contracted Lawrence Ambrose to create a mutant gene to turn an ordinary person into an aggressive fighting machine. But all too quickly, Ambrose was found to be behind a streak of vicious murders, and Queen Victoria ordered the project, and Ambrose, terminated. Thus the legend of "Jack the Ripper" was born. The killings stopped as suddenly as they had begun - but not because Ambrose was caught. He had escaped to America. In 2012, a small cache of antiquated notebooks containing long-buried instructions is uncovered. Enter the Event Group and Col. Jack Collins, who are desperate to stop one of their most feared enemies. When the formula is loosed in the underground halls and vaults of the Event Group complex itself, brother will battle brother, and for the first time in many brave men's lives, they will understand the true meaning of fear.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for the novels of David L. Golemon

"Primeval: "

"Golemon knows how to make readers turn the pages, and "Primeval" will only further enhance his reputation." --"Booklist"

"Ancients: "

"A mix of the James Rollins action-heavy adventure, the military gadgetry of Tom Clancy, the pacing of the television series "24", and the conspiracy theories devoured by fans of the radio show Coast to Coast AM." "-Booklist"

"Legend: "

"A tale worthy of the giants of the genre like Clive Cussler, James Rollins, and Matthew Reilly."

--Megalith.com

"Golemon can write action sequences with the best of them, and he lands a solid uppercut with this book. The depth of the science fiction lies under the surface for the most of the work, but is surprising and ingenious none the less." --SFSignal.com

"Event: "
"A promising debut sure to satisfy fans of "The X-Files . . . "the plotting and hair's-breadth escapes evoke some of the early work of Preston and Child, and the author's premise offers a rich lode of materials for inevitable sequels." "--Publishers Weekly""


""A flat-out adrenaline rush." "--New York Times" bestselling authors Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens


Praise for "Ripper"

"[A]n explosive combination that features the author's immense imagination. It's difficult to ground such fantastic science and weirdness in reality, but Golemon makes it look effortless... tense, terrifying -- and worth the investment. Readers not familiar with the Event Group will find this book the perfect place to start." -"Associated Press"

"The latest suspenseful Event Group thriller (see Legacy) is an exciting action-packed tale that deftly links Ripper to the contemporary war on drugs... fans will enjoy this engaging entry filled with action and a thrill seemingly around every corridor and cave." -"The Mystery Gazette"
