What they don't know is a clandestine anti-terrorism task force has been tracking Nathan for years. They have other agents with abilities similar to Nate's and now they need his nose to help them sniff out an activist cell. Members of the cell have kidnapped a scientist and stolen his research which can be used to destroy cities and even the Earth itself. Here's what advance reviewers are saying: Reviewed by Cheryl E. Rodriguez for Readers’ Favorite - 5 out of 5 stars Gravity Games by John Matsui is an outstanding thriller . . . an innovative novel, way out of the box - it’s not your run-of-the-mill thriller. The characterization is extraordinary.The supporting cast of characters – a mad scientist, evil psychopath, young do-gooders, and those with extreme sensory powers - bring depth and suspense to the unique storyline. The plot weaves in and out, up and down, backwards and forward, creating several riveting, spiraling illusive sub plots. The science of “negative gravity,” the hidden agendas, all the underlying lurid details portray a mind-boggling narrative. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Review by Diane Donovan, Editor California Bookwatch Gravity Games . . . winds science into the mix and invites mystery fans to investigate realms that usually lie outside the typical genre read . . . (The hero is) a famous food and wine personality and his skills in this arena compliment his other unique abilities. Everything is about to change, all spiced with an unexpected dose of humor throughout . . . not usually seen in murder mysteries . . . Terrorism and food usually don't mix; but here they are explored in exquisite passages that keep readers guessing and involved. The hallmark of a solid mystery read is its ability to captivate even the most avid of genre readers: Gravity Games doesn't just involve; it immerses readers in the finer details of the story. Highly recommended for any mystery fan who also happens to cultivate an affection for food and special problem-solving abilities. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Reviewed By Rabia Tanveer for Readers’ Favorite - 5 out of 5 stars Gravity Games was a joy to read. The action packed novel was a thrilling ride. I was a little skeptical about how a super sense of smell can help a task force to capture a terrorist, but the way it was handled and written was awe inspiring. John Matsui wrote the mystery to perfection. Nathan was so charming and Bonnie was the right companion to keep him in line. I love novels where a male and a female character are a team. The suspense, mystery, thrill and action of the novel were so potent. Plus, the cover of the novel is amazing! With vivid details, awesome storyline, fast pace and craftsmanship, Gravity Games is a novel that must be on your bookshelf.

    While this is not a sequel to the author's phenomenal first novel 'Late Bite', it shares all the ingredients to make it equally successful. The writing is superior and you can definitely recognize the author's distinctive style which makes it so captivating. The whole book is overflowing with fresh ideas and original concepts I never read of before and therefore reading it was a highly entertaining adventure full of surprises. I loved that the story makes several references to 'Late Bite' and takes place in the same (Toronto) universe the author created back then.The only minor criticism I may have is that there were almost too many sideshows and background stories. At times they threatened to put the main plot and especially the main character too far into the background. But then I rather prefer such an excessive outburst of creativity any given time (and book) and I definitely enjoyed making this journey.
