I'm a sucker for a UFO, conspiracy,action packed thriller, deep throated spy, fact, fiction and lots of other well placed words tossed if for good measure.....this one has it all and I love it!
This offering from Mr. Chapman is based on the history of UFOs and the many government agencies that sprang up to handle the growing concerns and proposed threat from the explosion of sightings that started in the mid 40s and really took off with the reported crash and recovery of a UFO near Roswell NM in 1947.
Mr. Chapman ties together actually cases, events, places, times and weaves them together with just enough magic to make this a hard to believe its not all non-fiction....though no doubt some of it is truly non-fiction because you know it has to be.
Believe we are alone in the vastness of this great universe or not....but I choose to believe that there is no way that we are alone and I also believe that there is a good chance that we have and may still be visited by some of those who share this space with us.
No, I do not believe all that has been reported off these UFO events, encounters, abductions and such as actually happening...but I do have to question that 1 to 3 percent that can't be explained and wonder if...if it is a fact..we are not alone and they walk among us today.
For those who have any knowledge of the UFO history...this read will be much like reading a history of these events with a lot of what could be inside information and for those not so familiar..it could be an opening to indulge yourself!!
I know Mr. Chapman has much to offer in the future and I will most certainly follow his work...I think you should as well.
As I have stated in previous reviews of Mr. Chapman’s work, it is difficult to pinpoint the subject genre, but I will say you will find no Ian Fleming here, but a good dose of John le Carré. Who do we trust? Who do we prepare defense against? Are the Russians our allies? Or the Americans? And just who does not have a hidden agenda? There are plenty of close encounters to be found. Using the John le Carré comparison, you can take the intended Angel Trilogy and call it Jason Chapman’s “Karla” Trilogy of UFO cold war conspiracy.
The historical aspect that is woven into the story line is thrilling. Jason Chapman has done more than a cursory amount of research. As I said earlier it comes to boil here. The abduction or was it perhaps a domestic row? Can the dead return? The first confrontation, where one can glimpse the present, future past. With the presence of Bifrons one is at the beginning and ending of conflict. But is it peace or war and with whom? From stones to cell phones, technology requires the complex mental processes of which humans are uniquely capable, but do we get any help along the way? Oh the riddle that unravels and left me clamoring for more.
Well done Jason Chapman.
One might start with Tales from Majestic if you wish to walk chronologically, but it really wouldn't matter if you started with The Angel Committee as both travel separately well and intersect nicely from either end, as if Ianus, the ancient Roman god of beginnings and transition, personally ensures smoothness.
Presently I note that The Angel Committee is also available in paperback and not just in e-book format as is the Tales from Majestic. I’m guessing once Mr. Chapman gets the publishing end settled he can release Majestic in a collected paperback series. So if it must be physical paper because digital isn't for you, by all means get The Angel Committee in paperback. I'm thinking of purchasing one so I can place it honorably with my other collected books.
You will not be disappointed either way.
Oh, and for those of you who are wondering, yes I had to use the word Bifrons, otherwise I would have given away a spoiler, as for the others? Well I just couldn't help myself.
