The heroine in The Trojan Project is a city girl, Sarah, who married Peter, a farmer, and moved to the farm to live with him. Two children later---all the while happily married---her husband leaves on a normal day's work to tend sheep. At usual supper time Peter has not returned, nor later at bedtime. Although the children are all nestled and snug in their beds, Pete is nowhere to be seen. But a large semicircle of blinding blue light does show behind the hill where Pete is tending sheep. Then the light disappears and an orange fog creeps over that hill and down into the valley below another hill on which Pete's house stands.
When morning comes, Sarah discovers that every living thing the cloud has touched not only dies, but their flesh melts like wax in intense heat. Not only that, but any living creature---including people---that touches the pool of a melted body suffers the same fate.
While this seems to predict a horror story, the horror turns out to be the government who wants to cover up this incident. Even to the point of killing them and disposing of their bodies by making them touch the putrefying pool of melted body matter. While Sarah doesn't know this, a local deputy sheriff becomes suspicious of an army officer's manner and ends up hiding Sarah and her children from the soldiers, and then helping her by joining her flight and driving her and her two children and a dog to Sarah's parents in London. Sarah's father is very high in the national government and she feel he will protect them.
Meanwhile, Pete escapes injury by the strange, destroying occurrence. He finds his home empty, and has also seen the effects of the orange fog. As he begins to seek his wife, he also is considered dangerous by the army. He is captured, and sentenced by the army officer to be disposed of.
This fast-action tale will keep you on the edge of your chair clear to the end. Be sure to begin reading it when you will have time to finish it. You won't want to put it down. I read through from the beginning to the end without stopping for any other task.
The ending is a little predictable, but that did not ruin the story for me.
I wanted to know what happened to Pete, Sarah’s husband. Was he dead as Dave said, or could he, by some miracle, still be alive? Sarah continues to believe that he is alive.
From the very beginning, Rich had shown signs of someone not to be trusted. Would he kill all those people just to get back at Charles, Sarah’s father, and her family for marrying off Sarah to Pete instead of him? This story is the classical example of “the evil that men do always comes back to haunt them.”
Yes, this is a great story, with little flaws here and there. I hope the author continues to fine tune it.
