Threshold: A Jack Sigler Thriller

Jeremy Robinson, St. Martin's/Dunne, $25.99 (336p) ISBN 978-0-312-54030-2
In Robinson's wildly inventive third Chess Team adventure (after Instinct), the U.S. president, Tom Duncan, joins the team in mortal combat against an unlikely but irresistible gang of enemies, including "regenerating capybara, Hydras, Neanderthals, [and] giant rock monsters." Special ops team leader Jack Sigler, call sign King, has two major tasks: leading his extraordinary compatriots (Queen, Rook, Bishop, Knight) into action and protecting his 12-year-old Native American foster daughter, Fiona Lane. When Fiona is kidnapped during an attack on Fort Bragg, N.C., King swings into action, intent on bringing her home. Aided by Hercules (yes, that Hercules), King proves once again up to the task. Final events point to a continuation of the ongoing struggle to save mankind. Video game on a page? Absolutely. Fast, furious unabashed fun? You bet. (Apr.)
