September Books 11) Prelude to Chaos, by Edward Llewellyn

I admit that I only bought this because the author has the same name as a friend of mine who has a key back-room role in British politics; next time I see him I will give him this book as I don't especially feel the need to treasure it in my collection.

It's a somewhat confused tale of two wrongly accused prisoners breaking out and discovering that the USA (indeed, the world) of 2030 is on the brink of biological catastrophe. The point of the book seems mainly to be the escape sequences of the first half, followed by the resistance against the bad guys of the second half, which are decently enough written. The elements of a good book are all there but somehow don't quite gel.
