Genre: 16+ Spy/Techno Thriller

About the Book:
Michael Chase is back.WARNING: Blown Circuit, the eagerly anticipated sequel to the #1 spy thriller, Lethal Circuit, is here. If you don’t like turbo-charged action adventure, then you’d better find some place to hide.
But now he has enemies. Deadly enemies.
Good thing Michael is in no mood to play nice.
Michael survived China. Barely. But now he’s got bigger problems. A pair of coordinates broadcast on an obscure frequency have brought Michael to Istanbul, Turkey where credible chatter has emerged that a terrorist group plans to use a devastating device to hold the world hostage.
Designed by Nikola Tesla, arguably the greatest inventor of the Twentieth Century, the device is experimental, it is capable, and it has been missing for almost sixty years.
If Michael is to prevent a catastrophe, he’ll need to get to the device before the Conspiracy or risk upsetting the global balance of power forever. Of course, finding the Tesla Device is one thing, knowing whom he can trust with it is another matter entirely.
To survive, he’ll have to do both. If he doesn’t, what started as a bad day is about to become a disaster.
Can Michael fight his way through the lies and deception to save the world?
If you can’t get enough of the action of Lee Child and Vince Flynn, the intrigue of Robert Ludlum, and the adventure of Clive Cussler and James Rollins, you are going to LOVE Blown Circuit!

After receiving coordinates from his father, Michael goes to Istanbul to check it out and see if he can find his father and free him from whoever has kidnapped him. But it's not as simple as it seems and he finds himself in the middle of a situation where he has to help terrorists to find Tesla device that could destroy millions of people. The only problem is who Michael can actually trust and who is there only for the money.

Wow. Lars definitely did it again! I absolutely loved the first book in Michael Chase series but find Blown Circuit to be his best work yet. With amazing writing, he brings to life more adventures and dangerous situations where Michael can find himself out of with his incredible mind. Every situation is so descriptive, the reader finds himself caught in the middle of it, not being able to put this book down. 

Audiobook Notes: Amazing performance by Russell Jonas! I could not have picked a more perfect narrator for Michael Chase story and definitely think that he brings a lot to the table with his voice. Sometimes narrators tend to overlook the action part of the story and forget that their speed needs to match the story and Jonas definitely knows exactly when to do that. Amazing!
