I'm really excited over the below review as Janet Sked, reviewer, astutely picks up on the parallel between the main character in The Judas Syndrome, and the Apocalypse itself. Below is an excerpt from that review which can be found on Amazon.com.
-"Joel. For me this guy was the perfect anti-hero - difficult to like, remarkably easy to sympathise with. No attempt at covering his flaws or making him a saint. What really struck me was watching this guy devolve slowly into utter paranoia and self-hate, and eventually self-destruct in every sense of the word, while constantly trying to do what he thinks is right. Joel in the end is the personification of the apocalypse, and I thought this was beautifully done." - Janet Sked
