Leader’s teenage daughter Betsy is sent to kill Jake and eliminate him as a possible witness When Jake’s mother blames his head injury for his tales of attempted murder he has to rely on his girlfriend Laurissa to help. Mike Mullin s Ashfall is a good trilogy if less electrifying than some post apocalypse novels but Surface Tension is so intense it triggers a visceral stress response in the reader as seventeen year old Jake Solley navigates the Kafkaesue distortion his life has become The narrative takes nearly two hundred pages to get going but once it does watch out Jake s plight is maddening as he s victimized by powerful people on both sides of the law who think nothing of ripping apart his life Surface Tension starts with a mystery girl named Betsy calmly waiting in an airport boarding zone She knows a plane crash is about to occur that investigators won t find a cause for Betsy is part of a terrorist group that engineered the attack to murder a congressman because of his Muslim faith The Sons of Paine dedicated to inflaming Islamic American relations in hopes of causing war boasts many influential members including Betsy s father Betsy coolly watches Flight 117 rise into the sky then plunge almost gracefully back to earth just out of range for the sound to reach the airport The next mission for the Sons of Paine is ready to commence Jake isn t politically minded he just wants to compete in bike races against the circuit s top athletes Intensive training is key and Jake puts in the hours of hard work He s biking on a back road uite a distance from his mother s house when he spots at least a dozen tanker trunks by the roadside the next thing he knows he s waking up in a semi truck beside two men discussing killing him The candle of his life burns short so Jake risks flinging himself from the speeding vehicle He regains consciousness wracked with pain in a hospital his memory blank Not even the sight of his distraught mother rings a bell Betsy has unfinished business left over from the plane crash she supervised The boy s body is broken and he s scarcely conscious Betsy can sneak in and out and no one will realize his death was murder This is her chance to show her father she s indispensable to the Sons of Paine Betsy s fake ID that claims she s Jake s girlfriend Laurissa Davis gets her into his room but once she mounts him in the hospital bed she finds she can t go through with the slaying Betsy scurries off to take the punishment from her father at home and Jake s mother dismisses his wild eyed claim that a teenager calling herself Laurissa attempted to crush his chest Jake sustained a severe concussion in his biking accident his mother reminds him his memory is returning in bits and pieces but hallucinations are expected Jake can t swear his murderer girlfriend was real but he s glad to meet the genuine Laurissa again She doesn t care that he s white and she s black that he s middle class and her father owns one of the biggest restaurant chains in the Indianapolis area She s also gentler with him than the Laurissa of his nightmares Jake is ready to heal and resume his life The Sons of Paine have no intention of letting him What Jake witnessed by the roadside on June 11 the day Flight 117 crashed threatens the Sons of Paine and the spread of their anti Muslim ideology If Jake recalls the circumstances leading to his accident powerful individuals could be sent to prison for life Two operatives are sent to finish the job Betsy botched but Laurissa and a still fragile Jake evade the spray of bullets and flee to the authorities They ve yet to connect Jake to Flight 117 s fate but the evidence is there if investigators can think outside the box Why are hit men dogging Jake and are Laurissa s father s pockets deep enough to counteract the resources of the people who want Jake dead Here s where the world erupts in a fireball of mayhem Acting on a tip from an anonymous trusted source the FBI detains Jake as a suspect in the Flight 117 terror attack Agent Tapper assumes Jake was coerced into partaking in the plot meaning he won t bear culpability for what ensued but he must name his contact person or Tapper will put the screws to him in ways that would appall most ordinary law enforcement personnel Jake is bewildered and terrified how did Tapper get the idea that an application on his phone is responsible for Flight 117 Jake barely remembers his bicycle crash let alone an interaction with a stranger that never happened Jake s mother doesn t believe what he tells her about Tapper threatening Laurissa if he won t cooperate with the FBI she ascribes it to hallucinations from lingering brain trauma Laurissa isn t sure what to believe but her father forbids Jake from seeing her With terrorists trying to kill him the FBI on his leg like a rabid dog and friends and family disregarding his claims as post concussion syndrome the nightmare of Jake s life gets darker by the hour His mother takes action to put him in a psychiatric facility so he leaves home for the streets Leads are few but Jake and Laurissa came up with a few scant details about Betsy before the FBI arrested him If he can somehow contact Betsy maybe he can obtain the info Tapper wants before the FBI man employs extreme tactics to extract it from Jake Every shadow on a street corner could be an assassin every computer glitch an FBI override shutting down Jake s last ditch attempts to prove himself innocent every call on his cell phone the announcement that Jake s mother or Laurissa were murdered because Jake couldn t satisfy the demands of his tormentors We feel as desperate as Jake for a glimmer of hope but are the hearty people in his inner circle enough to stave off predatory FBI agents and an obscenely wealthy terrorist network Surface Tension is action than philosophy but the foundational uestions are uncomfortable for any society that delegates its criminal justice dealings to government organizations that act without public accountability When people charged with maintaining peace use that power on a hunch to persecute individuals who may be innocent who are the real terrorists Are they any better than the violent extremists who target certain demographics because they believe the people in those groups will eventually do violence Government agents might argue they are doing the necessary dirty work so citizens can lead normal lives but don t terrorists reason the same way You can t get moral results from evil methods sooner or later society collapses under the weight of its secret sins Surface Tension inspects the root cause of terrorism and government tyranny eual threats to any society striving to forward itself while retaining the right of individuals to disagree what progress looks like or which policies should be implemented Mankind s greatest challenge is fashioning our future without eradicating ourselves I hadn t pegged Mike Mullin as a novelist who could make your heart pound and mouth go dry but I was wrong Surface Tension sneaks behind the reader s defenses and wreaks havoc The offenses committed against Jake will get your temper boiling and I m amazed when a book can do that Cory Doctorow s 2008 YA novel Little Brother is mentioned on page four hundred eleven and I suspect Mike Mullin was partly inspired by it the themes are similar as is the narrative s claustrophobic energy Little Brother is one of the greatest books I ve read and Surface Tension doesn t rise to that level but it provides all the drama thrills and potent messaging I could ask for and I m rating it three and a half stars The concept is ambitious but Mike Mullin proves he has the talent to back it up
