Philip Mercer and Cali Stowe meet under less than ideal conditions in Africa. Each with their own hidden agenda, they seemingly bump into each other by chance. Once back in America, however, their paths cross again, and this time they are chasing the same mystery. Led to the path of Chester Bowie, a legendary crazed professor, they begin to unravel the possibility of mysterious plutonium reserves deep in the African jungle.
The closer they seem to get to unraveling the mystery, the more dangerous their lives become. They bump into the same groups of people at every turn, some working to save their lives, some working to take them. As the pieces come together, they begin to feel like pawns in an unruly game of chess. The race to unravel history becomes a race against time, with the clear winner being the last (wo)man standing.
While J. Charles’ voice inflection is slight, once the listener becomes attuned to his style it is easy to get caught up in the characters. Havoc is an action-packed thriller, leaving the listeners mind spinning to solve the mystery, cheer for the hero and heroine, and catching their breath as the action peaks and crests.
