The Brain Scavengers by Paul Edwards
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Written by Manning Lee Stokes the second book in the series continues to be more espionage/adventure than action focused. Much of the book is devoted to the beautiful Russian "psychoneuropharmacologist" who frets about losing her virginity to a man that she does not intend to marry, which makes her borderline rape later in the novel quite distasteful. John Eagle attempts again to defy insurmountable odds to rescue some insane American psychologists and a couple of defectors, including the woman, and also destroy some salvaged brains of insane geniuses that have been harvested by the Russians for diabolical purposes. The writing is strong and it's well enough plotted, although the first half of the book was a bit slow moving for my tastes. I have the next few books in the series in my collection and intend to read them.
