Measure of Danger (Kade Sims Book 1)
Jay Klages, author

Success in a secret operation could be his redemption...

But to get inside the mysterious group known as The Chapter, he'll have to become one of them.

Kade Sims is a young former intelligence officer, recruited by the FBI to secretly collect evidence of organized crime at an agricultural biotech company in rural Oregon. But when he uncovers the activities of a high-tech militia and an imminent threat to the nation, he realizes he's the only one who has a chance to stop a savage terror attack already in progress.

And when he's made an associate of The Chapter, Kade will learn there's no escaping their network...

"Donnie Brasco meets a quirky Jack Ryan Jr." in Measure of Danger, the page-turning, riveting debut technothriller by Jay Klages.
 

Reviews
Klages kicks off a promising action series with this compelling thriller featuring former U.S. Army intelligence analyst Kade Sims. Kade, who was honorably discharged after he was diagnosed with hypomania, has settled into a quiet life working in a Virginia Home Depot. But his illness turns out to have a practical benefit, at least to the FBI, whose agents found that their new high-tech infrared lie detector could not determine whether Kade was telling the truth or not. That tendency, coupled with his unconventional blog, makes him a promising candidate to go undercover inside the Chapter, “the best financed and most lethal private militia in U.S. history,” which is using AgriteX, an agricultural biotech company, as a front. Despite his lack of field experience, Kade is intrigued enough to agree to the assignment, which becomes even more difficult once he hooks up with the Chapter and a computer chip is inserted in his head, significantly limiting his freedom of movement. Klages keeps the suspense at a high level throughout. Readers will look forward to a sequel. (BookLife)

PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS

"A RIVETING THRILLER. MOVE OVER CLANCY AND CHILD!" -- Kirkus Reviews

 "Debut author Klages is a former military intelligence officer and clearly knows his stuff. The characters are convincing, the dialogue realistic, the detail plentiful and the pace relentless...Klages has enough twists in the plot to keep the reader guessing, and the way he uses technology to spur the action is both innovative and believable. There is nuance too. His villains aren't one-dimensional lunatics; we see snippets of their humanity even as they plot destruction." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Strong characterization, a sense of place and purpose, and an evolving technological threat together make Measure of Danger a strong recommendation for any reader of high-technology thrillers; especially prior fans of Tom Clancy, Jack Higgins, Robin Cook and others writing in this vein." -- Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

"Measure of Danger becomes so enthralling that it's hard to believe Jay Klages hasn't been publishing military thrillers for years." -- Red City Review

"Measure of Danger, Jay Klages' debut novel is a page-turning techno-thriller written by a former military intelligence officer and a West Point graduate.
