"Excellent thriller May 15, 2014
By ChristophFischerBooks TOP 500 REVIEWER

From the Author

When I started writing The Trojan Project, I wanted to writer a thriller which would stand out. Something that would grab the reader's attention from the very start. And I think I did, though I admit it is chapter two which makes everyone sit up and take notice. 
The next thing was to take the reader on a breathtaking roller-coaster read and keep them on the very edge of their seat. I hope I did that.
Enjoy the ride!!

More About the Author

Eileen Thornton lives in Kelso in the Scottish Borders. Though she only began writing in 2001, many of her short stories and article have appeared in several national magazines in the UK. But then she felt the urge to move on to writing something more gritty.

Her first novel, The Trojan Project, an action thriller, was published in 2008. "While writing it, I felt I was on the ride of my life. I tried to grab everyone's attention from the very start and give them a rollercoaster read."

Since then Eileen has concentrated on women's fiction. Divorcees.Biz, a novel of fun and romance, was published in 2012 with Only Twelve Days, a heart-warming romance, following in November 2013.

She is currently working on a sequel to Divorcees.Biz, entitled: I Haven't a Clue!

The Trojan Project by Eileen Thornton is a terrific thriller that had me gasping for breath. The author has done an outstanding job creating one of the best conspiracy thrillers I have ever read. It is The X-Files multiplied by a million. The quality of the writing is superb, the pace is perfect and the story is so believable and well laid out.
Set in the north of England farming community and London, The Trojan Project grabs the reader from page one with an unnatural disaster so terrifying it actually gave me nightmares. This is a superlative "What If" scenario of the highest order that never relents throughout and this reader was simply swept away by the author's brilliance at upping the ante with each chapter.
Sarah and her children survive the disaster but she is shocked to discover her whole community dead or dying of horrific injuries that defy logic and understanding. She goes for help and this is where the thrills race off at breakneck speed as something far more evil arrives in her small town. Sarah is beside herself not knowing what has happened to her husband Pete and is desperate to find him, but sinister forces are at work to stop her at every turn. And there are so many twists and turns to keep avid readers of thrillers gripping this book with white knuckles.
So without a doubt this FIVE STAR conspiracy thriller is very highly recommended and a must read for all lovers of conspiracies.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Kasper Beaumont, author of Elven Jewel on October 9, 2013

I definitely recommend this intriguing novel by Scottish author Eileen Thornton. It's a mystery thriller, beginning when strange green mist descends upon a Northumbrian farming community, dissolving all life into a puddle of toxic liquid. Everything and everyone who touches this is rapidly killed and liquefied.
When you start reading, all sorts of weird and wonderful scenarios go through your mind and the scary truth is revealed fairly early in the book. Don't worry, I won't spoil it for you, but it was not what I was expecting.
A few survivors manage to escape the toxic mist and are hunted down like fugitives by the culprits.
I found the characters well-written and engaging. A dastardly villain is revealed to add to the tension and sends minions out to capture the survivors before they can reach London and alert the authorities. Will the goodies reach safety, or will they be caught and the secret lost forever?
The novel is well-written and reminded me of Stephen King and the late Tom Clancy. Well done to the author and I look forward to reading more of her works.
Recommended for adult readers. Rating 5 stars * * * * *

This novel will have you shivering throughout, what a roller coaster ride! This novel kept me riveted from page 1 until the end. Chemical warfare has been outlawed in most countries (at least I hope it has) but do governments ever really follow the law? And what happens when a madman decides he is going to unleash it on a part of the countryside knowing there is no antidote just so he can marry the woman he thinks should have been his. The government, the Prime Minister of England realizes that this mishap must be hidden from the public and all who were alive but saw what happened must not live to tell the tale. No one but a select few know why Sarah, her children and the police officer who helped her escape are being chased--nor why Pete and his ranch hand are being threatened. Will they make it to Sarah's parents house in London? Will the truth ultimately be revealed? All I know (or admittedly am willing to tell you since you know I won't give up a story that easily) is if you ever see a bright green object in the sky and then a mist--RUN like you've never run before!!

Filled with the suspense of an abnormal event creating a cover up and a chase of some who witnessed the event, this book will keep you reading as fast as you can to find out the ending. Truly a novel with a beginning, an exciting chase involving two separate groups that are being sought, and a wonderful and hopeful ending this is a really enjoyable read. The characters are drawn tightly, their strengths and weaknesses are evident immediately, and the threat of imminent death to each of them brings them to accomplish the hopeful ending. Fast paced and very well presented, highly recommended.

Right from the first page this book engulfs you in a sense of mystery and dread. One night Sarah Maine witnesses green lights in the sky and a glowing green mist engulfs the valley below. The next day Sarah makes a horrifying discovery, that plunges Sarah and her two young children in a desperate race to escape from a murderous government coverup. Helped by a young policeman, she battles to stay alive. All the while she has to wonder if her husband is still alive as he has disappeared. The story races from one suspenseful scene to another with a truly satisfying conclusion.

Very good plot. The author did an excellent job of telling the story. Although a little wording at times and lost my interest periodically by the middle of the book the storyline picked up steam.

Format: Paperback
The Trojan Project is, without a doubt, one of the finest thrillers by a debut novelist I have read in a very long time. This book had me hooked from page one and the storyline was so terrifyingly plausible that it sent shivers down my spine. Eileen Thornton weaves an ingenious plot and the characters are all too recognisable as normal, everyday people caught up in a horrendously frightening situation, where no-one is what they seem and no-one knows who to trust. The villains of the piece are all the more villainous because of what, rather then who they are, and I found myself cheering for the heroes of the book as they slowly unravelled the mystery behind the ghastly Trojan Project. The truly chilling part of this tale is that the scenario the author has skillfully created just might happen one day, and as a result, I found my heart beating a little faster at times as the chilling reality of that fact made itself so clearly evident. The book reminded me very much of the works of one of my own literary favourites, Robert Goddard and that is probably the highest compliment I can pay to this author. The Trojan Project is without a doubt a beautifully crafted and chillingly superb read and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone with a love for the thriller genre. Bravo, Eileen Thornton!
