“I loved it. I love the author and I love Keno – the main character in this series, that about sums up my review! In my humble opinion Real Laplaine is actually better than Harlan Coben and/or Nelson Demille. Try his books and I believe you will agree. Keeno is a man’s man, its miraculous that he and his partner are even alive. But he is smart, quick witted and gets the job done – HIS way. THE ONE is the latest in a series that will actually make your stomach tighten as you whip thru the pages! Each and every one of Laplaine’s books are treasures to be read. Not JUST the Keeno series. He makes the slightly possible become incredibly probable and does not let go of one iota of the readers interest. – Reviewer

“A thrilling read that takes you on an unusual and captivating adventure, and introduces novel subjects within Ai, spirituality and the existence of intelligent life in the universe. A recommended read.”
“The book is modern, thought provoking and suspenseful. He asks the big questions through a sci fi tale: Is there a God? If so, why design a flawed humanity? What is the ultimate truth of existence? . . . all our metaphysical questions woven through a very good story.”
Canada’s toughest crime-fighter, Keeno McCole, and his RCMP team, take on a sociopathic cult-leader and domestic terrorism which strikes Toronto, Halifax and Winnipeg – leaving a trail of dead bodies in its path. The One is the 3rd novel in this iconic high-concept Canadian crime fighter series.
“I enjoyed this novel very much. I love Keeno, his awesome personality, his guts, integrity and abilities. This was a shorter read which suited me well because once I picked it up and started it I just could not put it down until I was done, forget about sleeping or working, so I do recommend you read it during the weekend!” Ana Danel
Earth Escape is a sci-fi high-concept thriller, a bold journey into deep space to find a new home for mankind, a space odyssey that takes its captain and crew into new worlds, meeting sentient beings and which opens doors which answer the very questions about our existence.
Earth Escape not only meets the traditional paradigm for a classic science fiction thriller, on the order of 2001 A Space Odyssey, by Arthur C. Clarke, but it endeavors to take the reader into another realm, one where the reader is invited to engage the ultimate questions about existence. The mysteries which so many have attempted to solve, whether through religion or science, and yet which remain unanswered: How was the Universe created? Who created it? Is there a God? Who are we? Why are we here?
In this contemporary sci-fi thriller, one which bespeaks of the very circumstances facing our world today with growing nuclear arms, population explosion and environmental destruction – Earth Escape forces us to face the inevitable fact that our planet will not, by itself, continue to sustain the human race and that we must seek out new worlds to colonize and call home.
Gripping, surprising, and a very thoughtful story. A very memorable read. – Victoria Ichizli-Bartels, Author
Within a few pages the characters became my friends, which made the book hard to put down. To me at least, this is dystopian sci-fi at its best. Highly recommended! – J.Z. O’Brien
