Agent Six is sealed inside a torpedo, hurtling towards a warship at 150 kliks per hour.
The ship carries three canisters of the SARS virus. ChaoSonic intends to release them, erasing a rebellious segment of the population.
Six wants to stop them – but he’s about to find out that he has bigger problems. A scientist has designed a new weapon – one more dangerous than anything Agent Six has ever seen. One that could kill him, wipe out the Deck, and give ChaoSonic control over the whole City.
Now Six is racing the clock to find this weapon and destroy it – because ChaoSonic can’t always control their creations. He is living proof.
“From the very first paragraph – opening with a strong female character to put Meyer’s ‘Bella’ to shame – the reader is introduced to an action-packed, fantastical high-octane tale to keep the pages turning. Third Transmission leaves no doubt that Jack Heath is set to be the next Matthew Reilly.”
—Tara Moss, bestselling author of Siren
“This lightning-paced and brilliantly written novel (is) thumping, pumping, tightly configured and deftly researched. A new series of missions link together like chain mail in an astonishing plot-weave that works so well, you could peel it off the pages and slap it on a movie screen.”
—Tania McCartney, author of Riley and the Curious Koala
“(Third Transmission) showed me the places you can take the YA genre, with Jack Heath demonstrating a canny knack at action-based storytelling, incorporating cool sci-fi ideas…”
–Steven Lochran, author of Vanguard Prime: Goldrush
“His fourth high-adrenaline, all-action work-out. All of his novels race off the shelves.”
– Booktopia Buzz
“The author writes with such intelligence and visual ferocity, one can actually hear the bullets slapping into metal, figuratively see the explosive action sequences mushrooming into life, intently feel the crushing devastation on his characters’ hearts. Whilst dodging these figurative bullets and leaping from mentally-bound explosions during my reading of Third Transmission, one question kept occurring to me, over and over again. And the question was this: who on earth is Jack Heath?”
– Tania McCartney, author of Riley and the Curious Koala
“I liked this book from its opening pages – a sci-fi thriller that’s just violent and scary enough to be fun.”
– Owen Richardson, The Age
“Excellently researched and seemed to be written effortlessly. I read it in one sitting . . . really seamless; incredibly enjoyable . . . also has one of the most satisfying conclusions to a novel that I have ever (and read that as EVER) read.”
– Steph Bowe, author of Girl Saves Boy.
“Heath embraces scientific technology fact and theory and uses his hero’s speculations and discoveries to allow the reader access to the wildest of possibilities. Recommended for futuristic adventure lovers.”
– Claire Saxby, Aussie Reviews.
“A memorable book with bits of this and that, all neatly sewn together to make an irresistable story. An intricately woven plot . . . full of suspense every step of the way. I couldn’t put it down. Third Transmission will take the world by storm.”
– Tiny Tomo, Agent Six – the Fan Site.
Those are just the favourable reviews, of course. If you’re searching for unfavourable reviews of Jack’s books, then his official website seems like a ridiculous place to look.
Still, we are a little bit ridiculous here. Try the critical critics section.
