The story unfolds with a breathless pace, against a background of a new and complex geopolitical world, extraordinary technological advancements in aviation and results of incredible medical achievements.

Simply fantastic- The author is a master of building a suspense in a futuristic world of diverse cultures and surprising allies where complex electronic terrorism prevails and the characters meet the challenges of the new world head-on while at the same time, struggling with ordinary family matters.

Mahendra Vyas has written a very interesting book in a simple yet sophisticated language. One can gather that he has a really excellent knowledge of Air Traffic Control, International Aviation, Air Defense Systems and he has woven these into an interesting package. Throughout the book, his creativity comes through. I am sure that someone who is not familiar with Aviation terminology will have no problem understanding this fascinating story.

M. Vyas clearly demonstrates that he has an expert knowledge of aviation systems and gives us basic insights into aviation systems implementations on a global scale. This story is woven by three threads, the evolution of the global aviation systems and the international political dramas in adopting these systems, The rare dignity of the heroin Kevina ( I suspect the author) in helping the client countries to move in the direction of modern technology and safety, included are the reflection on the new age threat of cyber terrorism. Finally there is the human aspect of relationships between Kevina and her husband Nigel which gives a realistic narration of emotional ups and downs which most of us experience during lifetime but are hesitant to record.
Progressively as Kevina grows older and more introspective and she becomes a living reincarnation, reinforcing the philosophy of positive thinking and enlightenment (akin to Buddhist precepts), a secret to the kevina paul series.

In The Enigma – The Kevina Paul Series, Dr. Kevina (Kevy) Paul longs for something more in her life. Her daughter has died from cancer, and her relationship with her husband has grown lackluster. When she leaves her husband, she visits the local police station to leave behind an ominous message: I am okay. Do not try to find me. Kevy, a leading Canadian authority in aviation, travels to the Middle East to help escape her life, and find new meaning when she’s enlisted to stop an impending digital terrorist attack.

Moe Vyas creates a futuristic world that isn’t hard to imagine, given the state of technology today. The scenery he describes is incredibly detailed, as if we were listening to a play-by-play of Vyas, standing there and describing it in real time. The scenario in the book is realistic, as well. It’s not hard to imagine the world being threatened by a cyber-terrorist who uses existing technology—such as ATMs—to spread a computer virus with potentially catastrophic results.

The only disappointment for me, was that Vyas doesn’t explore the actual enigma behind Kevy’s longevity, as the title promises. There is mention at the start of the book that she has lived a long life, which is revisited at the end, but there is no satisfying explanation as to why.

Vyas’s story is told through the frame of a reporter investigating Kevy who is a unique individual, aside from the fact that she lives to the ripe old age of 137. The frame plot is interesting, and adequately sets the stage for the rest of the story, which is told in flashbacks. Vyas’s structure is best suited for a series, similar in sentiment to Outlander, rather than as a standalone book. If his intention is to revisit Dr. Kevina Paul in order to document another outstanding chapter in the life of this remarkable woman with his next book, then I have no complaints.

Another says: For those of us who wonder what the future may be like, this book is a must – as unlike science fiction, it creates a realistic future world where increasingly more complex cyber terrorism prevail, brilliant women and men who have mastered extraordinary expertise and experiences operate effectively across geographic and political boundaries and along the way they wrestle with real human relationship matters. And all of this in a world where they are beneficiaries of increased longevity.
