Enzo Lee, 37, a burned out reporter, has forsaken investigative reporting on the East Coast to churn out feature fluff in San Francisco. He likes his North Beach apartment, steps away from his Chinatown roots. Running, tai chi, great food, women who are attracted to his exotic looks. Life is good. Then, Lee is ordered to cover the unexplained deaths of a local judge and prosecutor. Intrigued by the connection, and the judge’s attractive niece, Sarah Armstrong, Lee begins to uncover a bioterrorism scandal whose perpetrators – including government officials and Silicon Valley titans – will kill to conceal. When Lee and Sarah become targets, the question becomes whether the pair can evade their hunters and piece together the story before their time runs out. Project Moses is set in San Francisco, New York and Silicon Valley.
Project Moses was an action packed mystery that literally had me searching to read at any free moment. In the car (when someone else is driving!), waiting at a restaurant, lets just say I haven’t been entertaining company the last 2 days. For me, you can tell how good the book is by how fast I read it. For anyone who loves a good mystery, this is a good one.
If you like John Grisham, this book is for you. It reminds me of The Pelican Brief and The Corruptible.
