Reviewed by Ruffina Oserio for Readers' Favorite

The Enigma Always is volume six in The Enigma series by Charles V Breakfield and Roxanne E Burkey, featuring the R-Group and a world characterized by high technology with advanced techniques in gathering and diffusing information. But there is something more. With the advanced technology, human cells and DNA can be enhanced to prolong human life much longer, but there could also be devastating consequences. Humanity may face a serious threat if the experiments of the unscrupulous Dr. Xavier Pekoni come to a neat conclusion. Only the R-Group, working in collaboration with CATS team, can stop him, and that is if they use all their skills and resources, but can they succeed without two of their key players, Jacob and Petra?

Fast-paced and gripping, there is no waste, not of words, not of a single plot element. The reader is immediately drawn into a mysterious world of covert activities with codes being exchanged and the R-Group rushing around with their investigations. The characters are well-developed, the complicity between some of them lived through very threatening and dangerous moments. Breakfield and Burkey are expert storytellers, entertainers who create a story that will have readers oblivious to their immediate reality for the whole time and characters they will remember long after they are done reading. Fans of sci-fi and thrillers will fall for The Enigma Always, and they will fall really hard. I enjoyed the excellent writing, the complex plot, and the monumental conflict. One has the feeling they are holding a bomb that could go off any moment as they race through the pages. I am a huge fan of this series.
