The Shiro Project

This is one riveting narrative. I could not put this down, definitely commence reading when responsibilities won’t demand your time and attention, you won’t be able to loosen your grip from this fast paced enthralling story. At first the reader is lead to believe the core of the plot is so far out there but….as the story unravels you discover anything is possible as it screams plausibility. The characters come across as realistic and down right believable through actions, behaviors, thoughts and back story’s. A part of me weakened for Eytan. Heck even hardcore Elena tugged at my heart. No doubt this is one major league compelling thriller ending all too soon, leaving the reader craving more. I have not had the privilege of reading THE BLEIBERG PROJECT, the first installment in the series but I plan on remedying this issue by running out and purchasing it pronto. Reading THE SHIRO PROJECT as a standalone posed no problem, unless motivating me to run out and snag book one is a problem. I cannot wait until THE MORGENSTERN PROJECT is available in the US. Referring to this trilogy as epic is an understatement, this is one amazing trilogy, biting my nails, as I anxiously await THE MORGENSTERN PROJECT. Highly highly recommend.
When yesterday’s enemies become today’s best allies and when mankind seems on the verge of repeating the errors of the past, what can a lone man do against the madness that is bound to follow? After his mentor is kidnapped, a Mossad agent teams up with his worst foe, but first must face himself. He is enlisted against his will in a fight that’s not his own and takes him from present-day Czech Republic to past Manchuria. He has to put an end to the activities of a mysterious group who have gotten their hands on weapons of mass destruction. What do Japanese war camps, US Army research and an annihilated modern-day Czech village all have in common? [provided by the publisher]
