IN PRAISE OF DAVID MARK BROWN
David Mark Brown has become known for tightly-packed plot lines and dizzying action.
De Novo Syndrome typifies this style and is a great place to start reading Brown and his broader DMB universe (which also includes the Lost DMB Files and his coming young adult series The Green Ones). Grabbing the readers by the hair, Brown drags them through hell with nary time to gulp down a breath before dragging them back.
Sinister motives brew continuously both on and off camera in a manner that casts the reader directly into the fire along with the characters. The effect creates a genuinely complex and realistic fictional world that doesn't stop spinning simply because the reader isn't looking. It also means readers look away at their own peril. One should never expect Brown to offer preferential treatment to sloppy readers. He does not.
That said, Brown's books are concise and complete and exactly as pitched--thrillers for those who expect the unexpected.
