Wade Boss Hybrid Hunter: Marcus MacGregor
Every animal has its own specific look, appearance and habitat that it thrives in. Some can live in your home while others in the wild or in zoos. Never expecting to see anything dangerous on their camping trip, the Peterson children gather around the campfire to listen to a story told by their father. But, what one little boy sees and then is confirmed by his mother would not only change the complexion of the trip but make anyone hesitate before going camping. Author Marcus MacGregor beings everyone into the world of cloning or genetics when the animal or species that attacks this unsuspecting family is finally caught what they see and what is found will more than astound animal trainers, vets, researchers and geneticists.
Imagine someone tampering with animals and creating combinations that are dangerous, frightening and deadly. When a stray tiger/lizard is found in an older woman’s garage imagine the thoughts going through her mind. Did she think she was losing it or maybe seeing things? Wade Boss is quite unique in that he trains tigers, performed in circuses and can even wrestle tame and control bears. Wade became an animal trainer under the guidance of his parents and then became famous or renowned in Hollywood as an actor. Wade’s services are enlisted to capture this tiger/lizard and the tension, the scene is so graphically depicted by the author that readers will feel they are right there with him reliving this heart stopping scene.
Why would anyone create animals that are part one and part another and allow them to escape and enter populated areas? After learning that Wade captured this animal he is enlisted to work with this special organization to capture all of the animals that have escaped and help find out who is either a researcher or maybe a mad scientist creating as they are referred to a Hybrids. With discussions on the news about cloning other animals and even people this story is not that far fetched but nonetheless frightening.
Entering the office of this secret organization Wade meets a young receptionist that he seems taken with. In the middle of his thoughts about this new job he does not hesitate to make sure that he sees Rose again. But, let’s not forget that we meet his movie star girlfriend and her elite group at the start of the novel learning early on that her world is definitely not Wade’s. He is hot, rides a horse, brave but is he faithful or will he wander?
Author Marcus MacGregor takes readers right into the field, up in the snowy mountains, hills and down the slippery paths as he and his task team hunt these hybrid animals in order to bring them to safety. But, what the author shares allows readers to know that the danger is real, the animals react on pure instinct and that the person who created or cloned them has infringed on nature, created species that cannot coincide with humans or other animals and created a definite imbalance in the environment.
Every step of the way and in most scenes Wade encounters a hybrid animal that adds to the suspense, danger and heights the tension within the characters and the reader. Each animal for the most part is has some form of reptile quality that makes it difficult for him to use the technology provided, the tasers, the sprays and the main weapon. When on a date or an evening with Rose, someone places a mangle brid in his truck and frightens her and more than disturbs him. Following a dinner with Genevieve he is called once again to capture another brid and when on the set of a movie where he is about to get eaten by a tiger little did he know what would follow. Hoping to give up working for this secret group he finds himself going after a croc/bear. Would you? Every step of the way he struggles to get the animal in tow in order to bring to safety. But, things go haywire and on one shoot things change and Wade finds himself in the thick of things once more having to go after a brid and leaving the shoot ruining his career, his relationship with Genevieve and losing his right hand man, Chet. Imagine a rhino/bear or even an elephant croc coming after you, what about a coyote snake? Can you imagine what would happen if what this author is writing about became a reality?
When his life unfolds, unravels and the end of his career as he knows it comes to pass what happens next will alert readers that Wade has to make a decision that will not only change his life, his direction but others as well. Taking his Flexcaliber, his spray and the rest of his new weapons he hopes to stop whatever this person has started. Placed in dangerous situations, these hybrids planted to set him and ruin his career, who wants these animals on the loose and who wants to prevent them from being sent to the zoo? Who is creating these animals that have no idea how to react at times and need direction themselves?
With the aid of Paul Fairfield and the task team of the Genetic Anomalies Task Center, Wade has to decide whether to keep his business training animals, doing movie shoots, stunts and date a movie starlet or find out who caused this to happen, why Rose was attacked and what is next for him.
What would happen is these animals were cloned with humans? An ending so explosive, a shopping mall under attack and numerous injuries galore. What happens at the end allows readers to know that the person behind this has just begun and there is more to come. One man who decided to risk it all in order to save others. One ending that will give everyone reason to take a step back, think what would happen if this were true. What is really happening behind the locked doors or many of our research labs all over the world? Could someone actually be cloning animals? These and other questions will be answered when Wade Boss: Agent of Mercy comes out. One courageous man who risked it all! What would you do if this were fact and not fiction? Think about it! You just never know! Who wins Wade? What does he decide to do? Will he quit the task center and go back to doing what he loves? What about Chet and Chandra the two people that help run his business and make his life so much easier? What does he decide? Why? What would you do if you were Wade? One interesting character with respect for what he does, the persistence to get the job done and the willingness to change his life to protect not just people but these hybrids too.
