Book Description:

The Austin Paradox continues the remarkable saga of Robert James Austin in a gripping emotionally-charged thriller that explores the most compelling issues of our time.

Having lost his extraordinary intellectual powers in a laboratory explosion that was intended to kill him, Dr. Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in history, whose medical cures saved countless millions, struggles to find meaning in a life that has become devoid of purpose.

As he embarks on a journey of self-discovery in an effort to regain his abilities, Austin battles private demons, otherworldly forces, and a government obsessed with controlling him. When ruthless political and business interests align to pose an existential threat to humanity, Austin is thrust into the maelstrom.

Doubted even by those who love him, Austin is confronted by a harrowing paradox as time runs out to save mankind from extinction.

The Austin Paradox is the sequel to the critically acclaimed, award-winning novel, Miracle Man, which was named by Amazon as One of the Top 100 Novels of 2015, a Top 10 Best Selling Thriller and a Top 10 New York Times/Amazon Best Seller.

My Review:
Reviewed by Laura Fabiani

Last week I reviewed Miracle Man, the first book in the Miracle Man series that left me fascinated with its main character Robert James Austin (Bobby). This sequel continues the story from where the first book left off, where Bobby survived a lab explosion and lost his unsurpassed genius intelligence.

Once again, the author builds a complex but believable plot, in which a Mideastern terrorist unleashes a biological weapon intent on destroying his enemies. We revisit past characters and new ones are introduced. Once again, greed, power and government manipulation are at the forefront as Bobby struggles with his personal demons and ethical issues. Bobby continues to be a fascinating character in this novel, although a good portion of the novel focuses on the enemy characters. The effects of the deadly disease and its experimentation on innocent people was hard to read and a feeling of dread permeated much of the novel for me.

However, as in the first book, the ending is really good and the paradox created even better, leaving the reader with much to ponder about. Leibowitz is a master storyteller and I can see this saga continuing in yet another book (hopefully!). Although this is a stand alone novel, I strongly suggest reading the first book. Read alone, this book is a good thriller, but read as a sequel, it's the continuation of a great saga thriller.
