Why would the FBI want to cover up a link between five unsolved murders, especially a link as telling as matching DNA recovered from every one of the crime scenes? That's the premise of Kyle Mills's Burn Factor. Instead of his usual hero, FBI agent Mark Beamon, the author introduces Quinn Barry, a relatively low-level analyst for the agency who stumbles across what at first looks like a glitch in the computer's forensics program. But of course it's not--the serial killer protected by the powers that be is a truly mad scientist who's indispensable to the completion of a top-secret weapons project. Quinn, whose lifelong ambition is to move up in the ranks and become a full-fledged FBI agent, is transferred out of her programming job as soon as she brings the link to the attention of superiors. But the plucky woman ignores their warnings and enlists the aid of another scientific genius, who also happens to be the chief suspect in at least one of the gruesome murders she's intent on solving.

Burn Factor is big on implausible and illogical plot twists, and small on characterizations. We never learn enough about Quinn to understand why she puts her career (not to mention her life) in jeopardy, even as evidence of a massive cover-up continues to mount and her boyfriend, a CIA agent, turns out to be a willing accomplice to the conspirator-in-chief. Fans of Mills's previous novels (Rising Phoenix, Storming Heaven, Free Fall) who keep waiting for Beamon to show up and save the day will be disappointed, especially since the author doesn't quite succeed in making Quinn Barry as appealing a protagonist. --Jane Adams

3.0 von 5 Sternen Mills tries a new character 28. Juli 2002
Von David W. Nicholas - Veröffentlicht auf
Kyle Mills has been writing FBI procedural novels for about five years now. He got a boost up because his dad knows Tom Clancy, and Tom wrote a blurb for the first novel as a result, and has kept up the practice with each subsequent book. They're pretty good suspense novels, not entirely to my taste, but pretty good, nonetheless.
This latest book is a departure from the previous three. In those, the main character is a maverick FBI agent who keeps on getting crosswise of bureaucratic superiors. In this instance we have Quinn Barry, a computer programmer who works for the FBI in the hope of one day becoming an agent. She's working on a search engine for the Bureau, a program which will search all crimescene DNA that's been collected and compare it, allowing different police departments to track multi-jurisdictional criminals. She notices a glitch, which she first thinks is a bug, but which turns out to be a deliberate subroutine that makes the program ignore one string of DNA. When she looks into it, it turns out that the string is connected to a series of unsolved deaths, dissappearances, and murders involving beautiful young women. When she tells her supervisor about the (she then thinks) bug, she gets transferred to another department in another city, and soon is being watched and then attacked.
The book kind of goes from there. The bad guy is suitably evil, though the brilliant serial killer who likes good wine and is incredibly sophisticated is getting a bit much, don't you think? Generally, these guys have trouble writing a complete sentence. Anyway, the characters are more or less fun (some more believable than others) and the plot hums along, mostly predictably. The solution leading to a government conspiracy seems inevitable given the beginning of the plot, and the solution at the end of the trail is as predictable as the beginning.
I didn't dislike this book as much as it sounds. I did enjoy parts of it, a great deal. The prose is reasonably well done, and there are parts where there is suspense. I just wish it had been a bit more creative.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great, probably Mills best book so far 6. Februar 2002
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It was a very quick read, the plot kept you going, plus the author really got you into the main characters. Occasionally it seems a little unbelievable, but then again look at the stuff we see in the news.
The story is written around Quinn Barry, a new FBI hire, she is in a safe programming job and finds a problem. Trying to work through the channels she gets put down and transfered by her boss, she endeavors to solve the problem, first on her own then with help from a suspect. The case is extremely difficult because the real culprit is extremely bad, very talented and has help from government higher ups. The book ocassionally gets pretty brutal (torture and rape) but it is essential for the story and did not bother me. I would definitely recommend this book. However, I noted in some reviews that it did bother a few people - therefore, if you are easily offended - skip this book and find tamer material by always checking the reviews before reading a book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome!!! 19. Mai 2001
Von fjmcmm - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a true page-turner. After reading the editorial reviews, I was prepared to not like this book. Thank God I didn't listen. This was a good book. Some of the things happening may have been implausible, but who cares when you are being entertained the way Mr Mills did in this novel. Quinn and Eric were great. Mr Mills pulls you in and has you caring about them. Marin was as sadistic as they come. You just beg for him to have a horrible demise. Him and all the other supporting disgusting characters. I am a big Mark Beamon fan, so I would have loved his presence to be more prominent. Hopefully the next novel WILL feature him. I wouldn't mine reading more on Quinn and Eric though. I highly recommend this book. Take the editorial reviews light and decide for youself. I really don't think you'll be disappointed.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliance Gone Mad 4. März 2002
Von Untouchable - Veröffentlicht auf
Quinn Barry works as a computer programmer with the FBI and is given the task of rewriting the code that matches DNA evidence from around the country. In the course of her testing she is returned some results that are incompatible with what she expects. In fact, it looks like she has uncovered the work of a serial killer. When she notifies her superior of the strange results, she is immediately removed from her position and a frightening chain of events begin which places her in extreme danger.
Meanwhile, we cut to a murder scene where a woman has been brutally tortured and raped before being allowed to bleed to death. It appears to us that a team of investigators are gathering forensic evidence in preparation to investigate the murder. However, while the team is actually gathering the evidence, they are not law enforcement officers and they won't be investigating anything. They are actually covering up the work of the murderer, but why?
The killer is revealed to us fairly early on, so the mystery isn't so much who the killer is as, why is he being protected. This knowledge of the killer's identity gives a new dimension to the serial killer storyline compared to other books which invariably reveal the identity of the killer in the last few pages, yet he is no less a monster to us because of this.
Burn Factor is an edge-of-the seat thriller that is somehow fascinating yet repulsive at the same time. It's fascinating to find out how this sick, sadistic madman is going to be beaten, as I'm sure you understand, he must. Repulsive both in his method of murder and due to the fact that people are aware of his crimes, yet allow him to carry on.
The faint of heart and easily disgusted should probably steer clear, however if you're a fan of the psychological thriller complete with bloody descriptions, you shouldn't miss this.

4.0 von 5 Sternen AN ACTION-PACKED SUSPENSER 6. April 2001
Von Nick G - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ambitious FBI agent, Quinn Barry, is stuck in a dead end job. Working in a basement office in Quantico, her day consists of updating antiquated computer systems, and dealing with a stuffy boss.
With her bright, and original ideas, Quinn, gets a chance to test her database program, in doing this she will uncover a mysterious DNA link to five gruesome, unsolved murders. Obviously her discovery is one that should have been left alone, because before she long, Quinn, is demoted, and a series of strange accidents happen, almost costing her life.
Teaming with her boyfriend, Quinn runs for her life, while trying to uncover the dark secrets hidden within the high levels of goverment. As the suspense mounts, and more deceptions are discovered, Quinn will come face to face with the madman behind it all.
There are many secrets, and plot twists to discover in "Burn Factor", so I will not go further into the plot.
"Burn Factor" is a compulsively readable thriller, that blasts off the first page and never lets up. With twist after twist the reader is held spellbound for 350 EXCITING pages.
In a short amount of time Kyle Mills has made it to my must read author list, and you should do yourself a favor-add him to yours.
Nick Gonnella
