Life on Mars, FBI Files, Book 4 By: Patricia Logan Narrated by: Michael Dean

"Another great book in the series - I was captivated by the story from beginning to end." Lesetiger listened to Life on Mars and shares their review.

From the blurb:

Things aren’t always what they seem. Special Agent Max Prince and his boyfriend, Dr. Leo Reeves, are back to work after their first case together. When a prominent Department of Defense scientist kills
himself in a mysterious way, their entire FBI team is tasked to figure out if the weapon he was working on was somehow the cause of his death. Things get even more interesting when SAC Lincoln Snow calls in old friends to help. Damon Thorne, formerly of the CIA, and Jarrett and Thayne from the ATF step up to help on the premise that their case might have a link to biological terrorism. But it's so much worse.

Seventy years ago, the CIA began an illegal human experimentation program, code named MK-ULTRA, and the more Leo and Max learn about what Dr. Cummings has been doing for the DOD, the closer they draw parallels to the defunct program.

These experiments aren’t the only things the government scientist has been working on. When Jarrett and Thayne go exploring at his house, they discover a secret room which promises to reveal the true nature of what’s happening, and it’s worse than they could’ve imagined. Evil always targets the most vulnerable.

Just when they think they’ve figured out what’s going on, an old nemesis from the FBI steps in with instructions to shut it all down and take over. All Max knows is that the sudden appearance of a guy their whole team hates can’t be good, especially when he starts throwing his weight around. Something else is going on here, and a cover up is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. To top it all off, an embarrassing ex, an accidental poisoning, multiple break-ins, and a couple of bad guys acting like ninjas add to the utter chaos of this case which promises to be stranger than life on Mars. After all—truth is stranger than fiction.

Lesetiger's Review:

Have I already said that I love this series? That's why I was very happy about Life on Mars, another book with Special Agent Max Prince and Dr. Leo Reeves. I recommend reading the books in order, because then you understand the relationship between the two of them and also the team and its dynamics better.

The story is entertaining; I love the mix between suspense and romance. There is a mysterious case to solve. A suicide that is questionable. The developments that follow are extremely interesting.

Who has his fingers in the pie? The team has no idea how close the danger really is. And who is a friend? Who is the enemy?

The story scores with some surprising twists that I didn't expect, as well as believable protagonists and an entertaining storyline.

And in general, you have to pay close attention, because there's a lot going on, but that's what I think is really cool. This is not an easy case for the team to solve and I love it when it gets more complicated.

The team includes Leo and Max as well as members of the ATF, which is great because I love meeting characters from other series.

The writing is wonderful as always and as soon as I listened to a few minutes, I was right in the middle of Max and Leo. They are hot together and you can feel their deep connection with each other.

I was captivated by the story from beginning to end. I listened to the audiobook and once started; it was really hard to pause the audiobook once in between. 

Michael Dean did a phenomenal job, bringing the story to life with his pleasant voice.

I absolutely recommend this audiobook and hope to see Leo and Max again soon!
