Rate this:

After Jack Slidell's discovery of his law partner's death in an apparent drug/sex killing, he and the beautiful Caroline Wonder are suddenly hurled into a race for their lives, a hair-raising odyssey filled with outrageous characters and violent suspense. Hit men and sinister government agencies hunt them at every turn, but their quest for justice determines more than the guilt or innocence of a dead friend: the fate of the earth and humanity's survival hang in the balance.

A page-burning, pulse-pounding chase-thriller of earth-shattering dimensions, The Extinction Event is also populated with colorful characters almost Dickensian in their energy and flamboyance. This is a book that will stick with you when you are done, a story you will remember for a long, long time.

This story seems to have promise at first, then the plot wanders and the characters seem to keep chasing some mythical target. I slogged through,as I'm ever hopeful and optimistic - but I was disappointed. I won't pick one of his books again.

Book starts one way and then seems to go to an entirely different plot. Ending extremely disappointing. What the heck was Black thinking? And what was I thinking for even finishing this book...

This is the first time I've reviewed a book and don't plan to do it often. Do not waste your time with this book. I would have put it down if I hadn't been on vacation with no access to an alternative. It reads like a movie script and not a book. The characters are one dimensional. The plot is nonexistant. The ending makes NO SENSE. I fell for the reviews on the jacket. Don't go there.
