The author, M. C. V. Egan, is very forthright in explaining that she is not any expert on world history of the period she relates; in fact, she says that when she began her quest to discover events she knew very little of that era. So as readers we are reassured that the author is not spouting regurgitated history texts, but fictionalizing her own experiences and discoveries. She has no hidden agenda here, no goals except discovery. Instead she is forthright, sharing her explorations and their results with us, her readers. I enjoyed the manner in which she made of herself a character, sharing her actual quests and discoveries and setbacks, just as the fictional characters express their lives throughout the story.

I fell in love with the characters each from their first introduction. Although Ms. Egan uses quite a bit of narrative in introducing them, it's neither boring nor unsubstantiated, for within the narrative she includes dialogue (running in the background, as it were) and a substantial amount of action. She draws her characters in such a way that they are immediately understandable, and the reader easily relates and empathises. The author also has a very clever mode of relating her characters and their events to a background of actual world history in their particular era, which makes the book seem down-to-earth even in the midst of a metaphysical discussion.

She mentions in one spot "the most extraordinary feeling of comfort in simply being with her," and this is the experience I have of "The Bridge of Deaths." I am reminded of all those wonderful books I've read in which I feel as if I have just settled into a comfy armchair beside a roaring fireplace-I can relax, enjoy, and relate to the adventures in the novel as an "Armchair Traveler.

This is the story of one moment in time that could have caused an entirely different world history had it been effective. I must admit, I am not much historical spy novels, but MCV Egan caught me at the get go. This book grabs you at the beginning and will not let you go until you have finished reading it. Even after it is all said and done, you find yourself still wondering about some of the questions raised by the book.
Even though the meeting on the plane did not accomplish the moment in time it was intended to, it still changed many lives. Ms. Egan's meticulous research into the incident that killed her grandfather brought the incident to life for many people. It has raised many questions for the people involved and the people who helped her research it. The actual factual research spans many continents and generations. It is well researched and specifically documented. No stone was left unturned in the investigation of this crash. Even the less than recognized methods of research fit seamlessly into the flow of this book.
The actual story cannot be absolutely proven due to lack of evidence, but the story is told by the addition of a fictional character. This is a novel approach to a sticky situation. It is a way to get all the information collected into the book. The imagination and dedication that went into this book is self evident on every page. The book is published in the fiction genre, but leaves the reader with the impression that the book is historically correct. It is a unique way to answer what happened on that fateful day of the plane crash at the bridge of deaths.
Like I said before, the book leaves you still thinking about it, long after you have finished reading it. I did not pay much attention to the cover, other than it looked nice before I read the book. Afterwards, just looking at the bridge gives me chills. It reminds me that something went on there that is still haunting many people to this day

On August 15, 1939, a small British airliner took off from London, stopped in Hamburg, and was bound for Copenhagen. In addition to the pilot, there was an odd, if not mysterious, group of passengers on board: a German corporate lawyer, an English Member of Parliament, two employees of Standard Oil of New Jersey, and an additional crewmember whose employer, much less his duties, remains a mystery to this day.
The flight never reached its destination. Instead something went terribly wrong enroute, when a fire raged out of control in the cabin and the aircraft crashed into cold Danish waters near a bridge that connects the Danish cities of Vordingborg and Falster/Nykobing. Only the pilot survived. Seventeen days later, Hitler invaded Poland and World War II began. Subsequently, the bridge went on to earn the nickname "bridge of deaths" because it was a key navigation check point for allied aircraft on their way to bomb Germany and also a favorite deployment site for German antiaircraft guns.
The demise of British Airways Ltd. Lockheed Electra 10A, serial number G-AESY, raised a variety of disturbing questions for accident investigators e.g., were the passengers listed on the manifest really who they said they were? Were they travelling as a group, perhaps for a meeting, clandestine or otherwise, or was their meeting accidental? How did the cabin fire start? Was it accidental or an act of sabotage? If the latter, by whom and for what purpose? Given that a British aircraft built in the U.S. crashed in Denmark under circumstances inviting the attention of civil aviation, law enforcement, and military authorities; it is not surprising that the investigators, all working under the cloud of war and government secrecy, made little progress toward finding the answers to these questions.
