The Prometheus Man (Prometheus Man #1)The Prometheus Man by Scott Reardon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Prometheus Man series has a new follower. I was drawn to the title and cover and was able to receive an eArc in exchange for an unbiased review via NetGalley. Tom Blake is investigating what appears to be a secret experiment and a man who appears to have superhuman abilities then it turns out that Tom Blake may exist but, the man who has been part of the investigation is not Tom Blake who is off on another assignment. He is the brother of one of a murder victim and his personal investigation has led him to this point. But, it turns out that there is also more to Tom than anyone knew.

The Prometheus Man shows the reader the darker side of the government and of man. It is one of those books that make you think twice about some of the things we hear about the government, especially if you look back to rumors about experiments done during World War II. How farfetched might it be to think that different governments are trying to create super-soldiers or experimenting with super-spies? Look how far the drone programs have come. What is scary is how the story chronicles the events and what happened to Tom and anyone else who might have been involved. Are there risks? Does everyone know the risks? Who should be involved? What happens when someone no longer wants to participate? The Prometheus Man gives a potential accounting of how it could go and all of the repercussions, not just for those involved, but, also for innocent bystanders. It is full of great action and fight scenes that really draw the reader in and I am really looking forward to the next book!
