Publisher's Summary

Jon Hudson, lead investigator for the Department of Homeland Security's Fusion Center-P, thinks his job is a joke. While other Fusion Centers focus on thwarting terrorist activity, Hudson's division is tasked with handling paranormal threats to national security, of which there have been zero during his years at the DHS. When yet another Sasquatch sighting leads to a research facility in the backwoods of Maine, disguised as an abandoned Nike missile site, Hudson's job becomes deadly serious.
Hudson and the local Sherriff, Ashley Collins, suddenly find themselves on the run from a ruthless ex-Special Forces security team, but the human threat is short-lived as something very much not-human destroys the facility and heads for civilization, leaving only a single clue behind-a name scrawled in blood-Nemesis. Working with his team at Fusion Center-P, Sherriff Collins and a surly helicopter pilot named Woodstock, Hudson pursues the creature known as Nemesis, attempts to uncover the corporate secrets behind its creation and accidental release, and tries to comprehend why several clues lead to a murdered little girl named Maigo.
But as the body-count explodes, along with the monster's size, it quickly becomes clear that nothing short of a full military response can slow Nemesis's progress. Coordinating with every branch of the U.S. military, Hudson simultaneously searches for clues about Nemesis's origins and motivations, and leads the counterattack that will hopefully stop the monster before it reaches Boston and its one million residents.
Witness the birth of a legend as Jeremy Robinson, bestselling author of SecondWorld and Ragnarok, combines the pacing of Matthew Reilly with the mystery of James Rollins and creates the first iconic American Kaiju* story since King Kong.
*Kaiju is Japanese for "strange beast." The genre includes classic monsters such as Godzilla, Gamera, Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah.

A Good Time

If you could sum up Project Nemesis in three words, what would they be?

Fun. Action-Packed. Entertaining.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The FBI main character. He made me laugh out loud. He doesn't wise-crack through out the book to the point of being annoying but he does have a sense of humor. He's also not uber-macho. Now the sheriff... she was macho enough for both of them.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't think I've listened to Mr. Kafer before but he did a great job. He's the kind of reader that you don't really notice because he's doing such a good job.

Any additional comments?

You will really like this story if you're into sci-fi monsters. And if there's a sequel, I'm in!

Holy Mother of Cthulhu!

What made the experience of listening to Project Nemesis the most enjoyable?

Great story. Great reader.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The monster - it was an ever changing terror and yet awesome creature.

Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

The main hero is a Bruce Willis "everyman" type, read to perfection by Jeffrey Kafer.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I loved it! I was so happy that finally someone had written a good full length kaiju story. Bravo Jeremy Robinson!

Any additional comments?

I've waited for a book like this for years! It is (and will be) a Kaiju-Kulture classic! It's more than you think. It starts like an extremely delicious episode of "The X-Files", then it transforms into a graphic horror story with gruesome detail so fantastic & gory it touches a Japanese level of genre high-Art. Then, it changes again, which shows Jeremy has deeply researched (and I think loves) this subject material and shows all the required views of mankind's helplessness and political inability to actually deal with something as extraordinary as a real life "Godzilla". Just when you think Jeremy has said all he has to say about such a well known pop-culture icon as Godzilla, and may slip into parody, he steps it up - and a brings in ancient mythology and deeper meaning. The author also is savvy enough to turn around and look at the Kaiju (giant monster) genre itself a gives a knowing nod that we have watched Godzilla movies since the 1950's - yet, Jeremy tells his tale with a fierce freshness making it as exciting as it was the first time I sat in a matinee and watched "Destroy All Monsters". He fully understands the enigma that makes kaiju popular: they are huge frightening forces of horror and destruction, and at the same time are sympathetic emotional focus of the fulfillment of human destiny. Like Godzilla at his best, Nemesis is both a destroyer and also a force of fate. A god-monster that lays waste to cities, yet is avenging some great human sin. "Project Nemesis - a kaiju thriller" I hope this strange title means that Jeremy will write more Kaiju thrillers. Thanks you Mr. Robinson for the wonderful story, and thank you Jeffrey Kafer for the great reading! More please!

Very Good.

I really enjoyed this story. I found it quite hard to put down. The narrator brought the characters to life and it was always easy to know who was saying what.

A full on joyride

Where does Project Nemesis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not the usual audiobook I would go for but it is one of the best I've listened to this year

What did you like best about this story?

It's a roller coaster of action and thrills each time you think it's over the storyline twists and sends you in a totally different direction. This is a solid story that will have me looking for more books from the author in the very near future

What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Jeffrey Kafer pulls you into the story with ease his voice brings each character to life and makes you care for there safety

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Godzilla with ladies problems
