Book Description

The truth can be a dangerous thing.

Terrorism, duty, and personal safety collide when Jake Pendleton, an investigator for the NTSB, is called to investigate an aircraft accident in Savannah, Georgia during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration. The accident, which at first appears to be quite run-of-the-mill, turns out to be anything but. Since Jake is not willing to pretend there are no suspicious circumstances and more than the usual share of rather unlikely “coincidences,” he sets off a veritable avalanche of secrets, violence and treachery. Aided by an unlikely partner, Gregg Kaplan, the air traffic controller who was the last person in contact with the airplane that crashed, Jake sets out to untangle the webs of deceit and to find a vicious killer.

Nothing is as it seems, nobody is who you thought them to be.
Nothing is sacred.
Nobody is safe.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars GOOD START, THEN DOWNHILL July 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars duller than dirt December 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Started good, but . . . October 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Non Talent Writer May 17, 2012

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!

1.0 out of 5 stars couldn't wait to put it down March 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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?

1.0 out of 5 stars Cliché after cliché August 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did not make it far into this book before abandoning it. The characters were flat and lifeless, with little sign they could hold my attention. The writing was very clichéd, and I just did not care for it. Spend your money elsewhere.

Format:Paperback
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.
