    1 thought on “Darkness Falls”

    1. Erin Neal has been living a secluded life in the Arizona desert since the death of his girlfriend when an oil company executive makes a surprise visit. A number of important Saudi oil wells have stopped producing and Erin is the world’s foremost expert in analyzing and preventing oil field disasters. As far as he is concerned, though, he has left that world behind— not his problem. Homeland Security, however, sees things differently. Erin quickly finds himself stuck in the Saudi desert study [...]

    2. Some books are really well written, but are thin on plot. Some stories are compelling on their own, despite any infirmities in the writing. Mills' book "Darkness Falls" largely misses the mark on both counts. Early on, I was certain that I had discovered a hidden gem of a book as this vein of financial calamity caused by ingenious eco-terrorism held some appeal. As though someone flipped a switch, the weak and disappointing "boy meets girl, girl steals oil-eating bacteria, girl fakes own death a [...]

    3. This is a book about terrorists putting a bacteria into the water injectors of oil wells and affecting the world's oil supply. It was VERY interesting and I ended up increasing my food storage at home after reading this book! I also love FBI/CIA novels, so this fit the bill for me.

    4. Was a great book, great plot and eye-opening. Was a great look at our oil dependence and the cascading effect of losing our oil supply. Very similar to "One Second After" as far as fall out, but not as dark. I rated this five stars but in reality it's probably closer to four. Nonetheless another great book by Kyle Mills!

    5. If I had read this a few years ago I might have found the premise just a tad far-fetched, but with the current administration, it's terrifyingly believable!

    6. First Mark Beaman book I read and don't think it mattered. The was easy to follow and I liked the idea of a bug destroying the world by damaging oil. I read previously a book called Black Monday and it shared that plot. Both books really got me thinking about quitting my job, selling my house, and moving to middle of no where on a self sufficient farm! Just don't know whether or not to tell the family? I am sure there won't be Internet or cell service there! :)I liked Black Monday more as it was [...]

    7. I recently read a good book, darkness falls, by Kyle Mills. I was shelving a bunch of new books at the library, where I work, and I saw this, brand new book, that looked pretty good (and the cover looked good to) I grabbed it, stashed it away for a bit, take a few quick peaks ahead and read a few pages and it seemed like it should be good, well I was right, it was.Now without being a spoiler, here's the plot line.Erin Neal is geologist of sorts, specializes in oil and bacteria. Well without givi [...]

    8. Erin Neal is a brilliant scientist and philosopher who wrote a groundbreaking book about the environmental movement, but he’s been living in seclusion since his girlfriend Jenna left him and died in a boating accident. He’s built a self-sufficient compound in the middle of nowhere and spends his days conducting experiments with bacteria while lamenting Jenna’s loss. His extended brood is interrupted one day, though, when Mark Beamon from the US government shows up, wanting him to check out [...]

    9. Unter den zuletzt gelesenen Büchern ist er ein Lichtblick, der schon 2008 erschienene Roman "Global Warning" von Kyle Mills. Obwohl es in ihm eigentlich zappenduster wird. Der Autor setzt mit ihm die nun 5-teilige Reihe, in deren Zentrum der ehemalige FBI-Agent Mark Beamon steht, fort. Abgeschoben zum Heimatschutz macht er sich diesmal auf die Jagd nach Bioterroristen, die genmanipulierte ölfressende Bakterien in die größten Erdölfelder der Welt eingebracht haben. Die Welt steht vor einer w [...]

    10. I really like Kyle Mills style of writing.In this book, he looks at the possibility of the sabotage of the oil product in the Middle East and America, and the aftermath of such a plot.Erin is mouring the loss of his girlfriend, Jenna, who is believed to have drowned at sea. He is suddenly, alarmingly, pulled into a problem in the Middle East. There seems to be a bacteria "eating" the oil. His special expertise as a biologist is needed to find out the extent of the damage and whether there could [...]

    11. This one was scary--it could happen if some twisted minds tried it. Read it in one day--couldn't put it down because I just had to find out what happened. From Publishers WeeklyStarred Review. Masterful thriller writer Mills returns to his series hero, former FBI agent Mark Beamon (last seen in 2002's Sphere of Influence), with a pulse-pounding apocalyptic scenario that is terrifying in its plausibility. Maverick environmentalist Erin Neal has become a pariah after his provocative book angered b [...]

    12. DARKNESS FALLS - MARK BEAMON #6 Erin Neal has been living a secluded life in the Arizona desert since the death of his girlfriend and he isn’t happy when an oil company executive comes calling. A number of important Saudi wells have stopped producing and Erin is the world’s foremost expert in resolving just these kinds of complications. As far as he’s concerned, though, he’s left that world behind. Not his problem. Homeland Security sees things differently. Erin quickly finds himself stu [...]

    13. Kyle Mills is the master of intrigue in this book. A small but realistic problem in the Saudi oil fields soon escalates into a potential disaster of epic proportions. Studying the bacteria infecting the world’s oils supply leads Erin Neal to a place from which he has been trying to escape for the past two years. When he finally comes to grips with who is responsible for the potential this virus has to create chaos in the world’s petroleum driven economies, his research folds back on the dead [...]

    14.

    15. Erin Neal has been living a secluded life in the Arizonadesert since the death of his girlfriend and he isn't happywhen an oil executive comes calling. Quite a few Saudi oilwells have stopped producing and Erin is the worlds expert in this field. He soon finds himself stuck in the Saudidesert studying a new bacteria with a huge appetite for oiland it can also destroy drilling equipment. It becomes clearthat if this isn't stopped it will infiltrate the worlds petroleumreserves cutting the industr [...]

    16. This was a fun eco-thriller, through in light of what happened with gas prices last summer and the current state of the economy I'm not sure the worst case scenario was bad enough. I also think the ending was far to rosy. With that much of the world's oil supply gone virtually overnight the adjustment is going to be pretty rough and while Erin/Mills mention some of the problems that would arise, particularly with regard to international trade, we never really see them play out on a permanent bas [...]

    17. This book wasn't bad. It kept my interest and was very easy to read. Unfortunately it wasn't quite as good as the other two books that I've read by this author (Fade and Rising Phoenix). In this case I couldn't relate as closely with the characters as in the past and I wasn't as overly intrigued with the plot. Regardless, it was still good and entertaining. If this had been the first of his books that I'd read, I don't know that I would read anymore unless there wasn't much else to do.The plot o [...]

    18. Mark Beamon, now a Homeland Security Agent, is given the task of discovering who sabotaged the Saudi's largest producing oil field by introducing a bacteria that eats the oil. The investigation leads Beamon to the biologist, Erin Neal, who designed the bacteria, to be used for oil spills. Neal convinces Beamon that it wasn't him who did the deed. The only other people who could possibly have done it, presumably drowned two years previous. It is learned that the exact same strain of bacteria has [...]

    19. I picked this book out because I loved the Mitch Rapp books Kyle Mills has written. I enjoyed the first 100 pages, but as I continued reading the book I had a hard time with the characters and the jumps they were making to figure things out. I will give Kyle Mills other books a chance. I just hope they are better than this one.

    20. I was in the mood for a few days of escapism reading. Darkness Falls delivered on the escapism but also came with a fairly hearty dose of environmentalist commentary that ultimately felt a bit overdone for what I was in the mood for. However, there were enough good things about the book, Beamon and a good cast of characters, that I'm certain to look to Mills again when I'm in the mood.The Mark Beamon series is one that I became interested in a decade ago and haven't picked back up due to availab [...]

    21. Every book ( 8 up to now) I read till now was an instant 5 star book.This one didn't feel like a Kyle Mills.The Story was very unbelievable. Too jumpy.One minute someone is in one location, and next paragraph he or she are hundreds of miles away.It was true also in regard to other events. No buildup of a certain situation.You can't understand way they got to a certain pointThe main characters Erin and Jenna are very shallow characters. Didn't like them one bit.I was able to finish the book, only [...]

    22. Since "Mercury Rising", the Mark Beamon thrillers have been a lot of fun to reada wonderfully drawn character with all the warts & skills that middle age can bring to a very upright and skilled law enforcement professional this one we find Beamon ready to settle down into domesticity when he's drawn into an investigation that threatens the oil industry & with that a threat to our existence as a modern society with all of Mills' novels, we get a decent background of some aspect of our cul [...]

    23. I grabbed this thinking, "Oh, another one of those mining companies are evil" novels but I was solidly entertained by the naive and cynical perspectives presented in the novel.The author does a fantastic job of spoofing the celebrity supporters of global warming - jet set leaders fly their private planes around the world telling people to dump their SUVs - while telling a fairly entertaining, plausible story about the precarious position we've put ourselves in by basing our western lifestyles on [...]

    24. This is not a new idea, a radical environmentalist / group plan to save the earth from humans by wiping the a few billion of them out. Luckily our biologist hero and a familiar character from Mills other books save the day, kind of. I won't spoil it but I will say that the world will never be the same. Hint gas at $12 a gallon. Mills storytelling kept me going and made me want to max out my credit cards at ammoman, scary stuff. Hey does anybody want to teach me how to garden?

    25. Awesome for the prophecies as the earth is threatened with the destruction of oil reserves and all products made from petroleum and petroleum-related derivatives.This is the third MarkBeamon story that I have read; the story is so engrossing I totally forgot that this book is Mark Beamon #3.Kyle Mills, the son of an FBI agent, has written such a realistic book of end times that I want to nominate him for an executive position with Homeland Security.

    26. A new look at terrorism and environmental extremism. Very interesting with some charismatic characters. Glad to see at least one good "government type", because I get real tired of the FBI and CIA and politicians in general always being the bad guys. There is a lot of that in this book, but at least one seems to have some common sense and a conscience. I very much enjoyed this story, but I must admit was scary!

    27. I’ve read the book called “Darkness Falls” by Kyle Mills. I found it to be interesting because it was about a bacteria that feeds off oil. The main protagonist Erin Neal is an expert at preventing oil disasters. Can Erin stop this bacteria on the oil? The book was ok to me because sometimes I get confuse on what’s going on in the story. But I did like the problem in the story.

    28. I like the character of Mark Beamon. Unfortunately, I disliked everyone else. The entire love story was completely unlikely and would represent poor thinking and emotional fragility, neither of which trait is indicative of geniuses. There were too many bad decisions and timely, convenient coincidences for me. And the epilogue? It drooped a two star book to one star.

    29. what if ? but Zorro always comes right in time to save the world a bit too light in the arguments (ecologist; economic, political and so on) but enjoyable Make me think once more about how we feel oblige to live, we who are born in rich countries, on these not for ever blue planet
