Book Review: Chaos by David Meyer

Chaos is the debut novel of David Meyer.

Book Description
New York City, 1976: Heavily-armed, masked men hijack a subway train...and its deadly cargo.

New York City, Present: An expedition vanishes while conducting a top-secret operation deep underground.

A SHATTERED MAN WITH NOTHING TO LOSE...

To locate his missing friend, former urban archaeologist Cyclone Reed must piece together his shattered life and return to the one place on earth he truly fears...Manhattan.

A LOST WORLD FULL OF DANGER...

Soon, he's storming through flooded subway tunnels, discovering a lost laboratory, battling a mysterious man-eating beast, and scaling a mountainous skyscraper. But as he plunges deeper into the strange and murky legends surrounding a piece of forgotten technology, he begins to untangle a staggering conspiracy.

A SHOCKING SECRET THAT WILL ROCK THE EARTH!

More than sixty years ago, a Nazi physicist created a weapon capable of setting the world aflame. Now, a diabolical industrialist plans to finish the job. At stake is the future of a nation…millions of innocent lives…and one man's final chance at redemption.


David Meyer is a treasure hunting adventurist who loves to study ancient mysteries and lost lands. He has taken his passion and turned it into the basis of his first thriller.

Chaos follows Cyclone, an urban archaeologist, into the underground tunnels of Manhattan. The tunnels (and the man eating beast!) reminded me a lot of Preston and Child's Reliquary. Good times.

Cyclone is searching for a Nazi secret weapon that was hidden away decades ago. He must find this device before it winds up in the wrong hands. Of course the wrong hands are right on Cyclone's tail.

If you're like me and you love watching shows like Ancient Aliens on the History Channel, Chaos is right up your alley. It's based on some really cool mysteries and science but mixed in with bad guys and monsters. You can check out more about Chaos and the mysteries behind it at David Meyer's fantastic blog Guerrilla Explorer.

6/10: Good Read
