No worries; this is NOT the old same old! An airplane crash starts off as a crash site "CSI" investigation, which is fascinating in itself. It then morphs into a Special Forces/CIA thriller set in the context of Sein Fein and the modern Ireland struggles. Of course there is an Arab terrorist aspect.

No one is who they appear to be, and there are lots of well developed fascinating characters. There are evil unbelievably cruel villains you feel sorry for, complex bad guys who have soft spots that are their undoing, and flawed heroes. Everyone in the book is "real" meaning that the Special Ops good guys get hurt and stay hurt, make mistakes, and only have human abilities.

The plot twists and turns, everytime I thought it was over and the obligatory wrap-up/epilogue would start, the plot began anew!

So why 4 stars! I reserve five stars for true works of art and literacy, transcendent masterpieces.

I have no doubt this author will write such a book. However brilliant Savannah Project is, it is ragged at times, sputters instead of roaring full throttle, and the writing can be distractingly choppy. Please don't misunderstand me, this book is better than most five star thrillers and I agree with the above reviews. However this is hardly the best book this author will write. When he gets the kinks out of his style, he will be one of the greats in his genre.

Started of believable and *somewhat* interesting and devolved into the realm of ridiculous. Another reviewer called the latter half of the book, "improbable." That's being VERY kind. 3/4 of the way through the book, I found myself wondering how we got to this plot line. I also found myself feeling that this was TWO stories in which the characters are the same in name only. I know it's a first effort, but to the author: It feels like you got carried away and lost control of the story.

A very good start, unique, tension filled. Then beliveable characters turned into unbelievable super agents, plot became run of the mill and improbable. Amazing that Irish security forces could miss "secret" entrance only known to villain, especially when entrance is a drainage culvert. Very disappointing finish.

An airplane crash investigation goes terrifyingly wrong - leading to murders, a chase through the colorful streets of Savannah, one of the most fascinating and memorable cities I know, and an international hunt for the secrets of a former IRA official and the assassin trailing him. This thriller has everything you could want -- great characters, nonstop action, wonderful settings and a complex plot that builds to a smashing finale. Jake and Gregg make a well-matched pair of comrades, and I hope they'll appear in many more Barrett books.

As an action story, the author drops the ball, repeatedly. There's a scene involving our hero avoiding a bad guy during a parade. It becomes a ridiculous series of chases from one side of the parade to the other, one side of town to the other that just doesn't work as actions scenes. Two big standoff scenes have equally ridiculous series of characters, one by one, getting the upper hand, as if it was a "Pink Panther" movie. He's supposed to have a military background but our hero turns into a Rambo type for the second half in a way that just doesn't ring true. Somewhere in the second half I became aware the author had a tin ear for dialogue.

By the time I got to the end, I was just so relieved it was finally over.

I picked this up when the second of the series was offered as a Kindle freebie, intending to start the series at the beginning. I'm now avoiding Mr. Barrett's next book of the series sitting in my library, in spite of good reviews from Amazon reader, because I dread finding the same leaden plot and writing that "Savannah Project" became.

Juvenile. Improbable. Boring. Lousy character development and a plodding plot. I can't believe the number of 5 star reviews this turkey received. Am I at twenty words yet?

Dull and duller. While procedurals can be interesting. this one wallows in red tape. unneccesary details and artlessly created charaters. still for the price it will at least help fill up your archive.

I got as far as the 5th chapter and decided that I had 8th grade students with better writing skills. Not many words over three syllables in the first four chapters!
