He spends most of his time reading world classics, doing calisthenics, studying languages, and digging deeply into a Bible he requested from one of his captors. Through his biblical studies, he comes to faith in Christ.
When one of the scientists befriends him and helps him escape, it's doubtful he'll be free long. After all, he's been chipped with a global tracking device, and the ruthless organization that has kept him captive is global.
Some of the most riveting scenes take place in Indiana, USA, my home state, so it's great fun to dodge bullets around sites I know well and race down highways I travel often. Author Barry also knows how to season a sci-fi thriller with just enough romance to satisfy the romantics among his readers. I'm hoping for a sequel.
Rick Barry has done an incredible amount of research here. He presents us with Roger Greene, a WWII pilot, who becomes a POW after his plane went down in German territory. Rather than being taken to a typical POW camp, he and six other POWS have been selected for a very important science project, one that may preserve "the Aryan race."
Another character, Katherine Mueller, is weaved into the story (modern-day Atlanta) as she struggles to please her uncle while trying to remain true to herself.
I think it's one that you'll enjoy!
Then the last 40% was pretty good, however flawed. A secret society agent/assassin never tells secrets. A person disrupting a meeting with a bizarre tale wouldn't be put in jail with an orange prison suit, nor shackled when seeing visitors. He'd be sent for a psych-eval at most. Someone not wanting to be tracked with a GPS item, either in their body or their phone, would get rid of those items immediately. It was interesting, and I wanted to see the outcome, but it was flawed.
I stuck with all the many chapters where little happened in the prison for like, 60 years, because I wanted to see how the female lead in current day in the secret society had to do with Roger. That part was pretty good. Clean, moral, pretty good story.
Someone interested in WWII fighter planes and other history will find this book fun.
For part of the story, I was following the lives of Roger Greene, a pilot in WW2 and a young woman, Kathleen, and trying to figure out how their lives were going to intersect. When they did it was a roller coaster ride filled with thrills and unexpected twists.
The characters were very well defined and interesting and I found myself wrapped up in the storyline. I especially liked the amount of research the author did in order to make the story come to life.
The story is filled with a secret society set on keeping pure the "Aryan race," Soviet researchers, and seven pilots captured and used for research.as part of The Methuselah Project. I could go into further detail, but I want to avoid spoilers.
It you enjoy a story with a great plot, great action scenes, and a heartwarming finish, this book is for you. I look forward to reading more from Rick Barry.
