Yearn to Fear: Australian Spy Thriller (The Lamarr – Book 1) by Chas Murrell
The greatest scientific invention of modern times…
Capable of curing humanity…
But more adept at controlling it…
Sydney scientist, Marcus Hall, is developing a radical 5G WI-Fi receiver for CSIRO. With access to secretive Lamarr computer chips – this technology promises billions to repair Australia’s ravaged economy. On a caffeine boosted whim, he inadvertently discovers a therapeutic breakthrough in neuroscience. Or so he thinks…
His seemingly trustworthy lab partner, Henry, is an unlikely Australian spy. His official duty is keeping tabs on the project and their Lamarr chips. But the whole project is now classified top-secret.
Marcus remains blissfully unaware of the many secrets surrounding him, until he witnesses the graphic murder of a colleague. Could this event reveal Henry as a master deceiver and ruthless double agent? Will the scientific discovery be fatal for Marcus, those he loves, and the one he yearns for? Marcus faces a soul tearing dilemma: is the only means of stopping the carnage to weaponize his prototype?
Foreign intelligence agencies realize the top-secret breakthrough is priceless. One particular spy leads the race to seize the invention. A psychological master of the long game, espionage, and extortion, his only rule according to Kung Fu: Win.
Friend and foe alike confront this psychotic mastermind. All will FEAR him, but is their FEAR real? Only the next six minutes will tell…
Chas Murrell’s techno-thriller, Yearn to Fear, is undeniably compelling as it is centered on industrial espionage, a likely theme in a world where governments and companies continue the race of unraveling more lucrative technological advancements.
To lower budget deficits following the COVID-19 outbreak, the Australian government hopes to develop extremely efficient computer chips. Marcus Hall is the prime Sydney-based CSIRO electronics engineer tasked with developing the revolutionary Lamarr chips. Murrell’s elaborate writing begins the mystery with an obvious antagonist. As the mystery unfolds, more unexpected revelations are made. Work continues as usual for Marcus who enjoys a friendly working environment alongside his assistant, Henry, and Sarah, the project manager. The excitement around the project mounts when Marcus makes an overwhelming discovery: a ground-breaking neuroscience breakthrough. The plot is fascinating and moves fast following the discovery. Suddenly caught at the center of an arson attack and blazing guns, Marcus begins to question who he has been working with. Chas Murrell palliates the tense action scenes with humorous remarks and romantic scenes. His characters are refreshingly realistic. As the main character, Marcus is heroic but also initially unconscious of everything going on around him. The antagonist is brutal and calculating yet given to irrational behavior.
Murrell’s experience shows throughout the book as he carefully explains the project which forms the basis of the novel. Interesting technical descriptions are explained in an easy-to-understand language. Even as part of a series, the novel can be read and understood on its own. Its extraordinary plot is built purposefully towards its exciting climax. Tense conflicts are also resolved and explanations are provided within the book. Still, one is left wanting more of author, Chas Murrell’s incredible work and as the novel is skillfully executed.
An exciting introduction to The Lamarr Series, Yearn to Fear is a rewarding thriller that incorporates possible technological trends in its fascinating storyline.
