Omega (A Jack Sigler Thriller Book 5) Kindle Edition
While the team is spread thin, an intruder walks past their secret headquarters’ defenses, sits himself down in the director’s chair and waits. When he’s discovered by Endgame’s coordinator, Tom Duncan, Callsign: Deep Blue, he’s easy to identify—Richard Ridley, the team’s oldest and most dangerous enemy, who is supposed to be dead.
But he isn’t Ridley. He is a clone in search of his master, the real Ridley, who yet lives and is being held captive by the same man holding King’s parents. Believing Ridley is the only one capable of stopping Alexander’s plans, a temporary and tenuous alliance is formed, and Alexander’s location is soon uncovered. The team, along with three clones, heads for a citadel buried beneath the ruins of ancient Carthage. Already in the area, King and Asya arrive first to find their parents and a staggering family secret that leads to the end of King’s life as he knows it. The rest of the team arrives to find Richard Ridley free to act, an army of high-tech mercenaries bearing down on their location and evidence of their leader’s demise.
King is dead. Long live King.
Omega is the fifth full-length novel in the Jack Sigler/Chess Team series, following Pulse, Instinct, Threshold, and Ragnarok, as well as the prequel novel Prime, and eight standalone novellas focusing on the individual characters in the series.
From the Publisher
#1 Audible and NY Times Bestselling author, Jeremy Robinson, protects the world from...the past!
Jack Sigler, callsign: King, and his team of Delta operators, Queen, Bishop, Rook, and Knight will face down any threat against the United States—even if they’re myths. The Hydra, Golem, Fenris Wolf, Cerberus, Nquoi Rung, Hercules himself, and more return from the past to threaten the future. Along with a host of original creations, Sigler’s Chess Team finds themselves up against a host of mercenaries, madmen, sinister corporations, and corrupt governments. Fans of Ray Harryhausen, Tom Clancy, James Rollins, the National Treasure films, and the A-Team will all feel right at home in these action-packed novels.
With nine core novels (and a tenth on the way), eight novellas, a three book Continuum spin-off series, and a two book Cerberus Group spin-off series, there are more than enough books to satiate even the fastest thriller reader.

I love the adventures of the Chess Team and can't wait to start/finish the remaining novels and Call Sign novellas.
But I have a question....Why haven't these books been translated into a weekly tv series? Here's my proposal for the tv series:
Each book is a 22-24 episodes full season, in the style of "24".
Each of the Chesspocalypes (sp?) Novellas could be webisodes or 6-10 full episodes, released all at once, Netflix-style.
Alternatively, a comic book series of adaptations of the Chess Team Universe can and should be brought to the attention of those comic book publishers that are looking for the "next big thing". You paying attention, IDW or Dark Horse?
And now that I think of it....video games. You have a rich back story, brilliantly written characters, future-tech, mythological and historical trappings. I would buy this game!
*sigh* (deep breaths) have I covered everything? I haven't picked up the audio books, as I prefer to give the characters my own interpretation of their voices.
Ok. I'm done for now...until I finish getting caught up that is.. :)

King is dead. Long live King.
Yet another great Chess Team novel from Jeremy Robinson. I have been following the Chess Team since book one came out and have loved every one of them! Super fast paced, fun series. I always finish grumpy because I have to wait for the next one. With Omega we get a closer look at the life of Alexander Diotrephes. And it opens up the possibilities for more Jack Sigler adventures. A great read! 4.5 stars.
I am going to try to explain my qualm without divulging too much regarding the plot; however, I expect certain elements of my review to be moderately spoiling. The most significant quality of King's relationship with Alexander has been the distrust King has maintained toward Alexander, and with good reason. Although Alexander's actions have nearly always seemed to benefit Chess Team, his motivations have remained cloudy. King cannot deny the help the team has received has been pivotal to their success, but he viewed each act with a jaundiced eye. Yet, in this book King tolerates Alexander’s actions, which are far more questionable, without issue, accepting things on faith and something of a premature fraternal bond. The progression of their relationship itself, following a pivotal act, is perfectly acceptable. It is King’s attitude at the onset of their adventure that I find dubious.
Certainly, I feel withholding the final star warranted, but there are still numerous elements of the plot that merit praise. The Chess Team members, while elite soldiers, remain fallible. These are not soldiers who can accomplish anything on the battlefield, Rambo style warriors who can shoot heavy, explosive-tipped arrows two hundred yards through dense foliage to strike transport trucks on a bridge. Their individual exploits remain feasible, with very human limitations, though their preparation and intelligence provide them with a decisive advantage. Moreover, the addition of Asya to the series is smooth, not forced, and adds an element of intrigue for future novels to explore.
Gilmour continues to impress as a writer. He remains true to the characters Robinson created, while adding a little more flair. With Kilmour's addition Queen appears just a bit tougher, Bishop a tad more vocal (and intelligent), and Rook appropriately more vulgar. His descriptive writing is similar to Robinson's, maintaining that as a strength of the story telling. The one critical observation, stemming from my teacher persona, is the appearance of way too many commas. This is something I have noticed in all of their collaborations. Yes it's trivial, but it is glaringly obvious to me.
While there is ample praise to expound upon, the final aspect I always enjoy is how Robinson weaves mythology and history into this series. In every case, and in most of his other books, I find myself perusing the internet to glean information on topics on which I was previously either only somewhat aware, or completely ignorant of. Through Robinson’s books I learn, and that is the quality I value most.

I have a question regarding the ending. when alexander steps through the portal and it explodes, would that not create some kind of paradox when his younger self finds his lab destroyed?
Cracking story line and wow Jack doing all that for Alexander - whom I now have a secret crush on......
