The Bridge of Deaths (Book Review)
Author: M.C.V. Egan
Source: From author for review
Publisher: AuthorHouse Publishing
Goodreads Summary: On August 15th 1939, at the brink of World War II, an English plane crashed and sunk in Danish waters. Five deaths were reported: two Standard Oil of New Jersey employees, a German Corporate Lawyer, an English member of Parliament, and a crew member for the airline. Here is a conceivable version of the events.
Thoughts: The Bridge of Deaths is a mixture of fact and fiction. The tale of real research done into a real plane crash and of fictional characters and a plausible explanation for the events surrounding the crash. This book had me hooked the whole way through. I would not have imagined that a book about research done in archives mixed with psychics and past life regressions could be so interesting.The blend works so well in this story that it leaves me wanting to know more every time I put the book down and even now that I am finished the book, I am intrigued by the mystery surrounding it.
The characters and story come to life in such a way as to make you feel as if you are a part of this small group trying to figure out the details and the inaccuracies of the official reports and trying to piece together the truth. It leaves me wondering what the truth is behind these unusual events that the author has been trying for years to piece together. In a world of spies and government secrets, it is a mystery that may never be completely solved. The conclusion makes sense and you can be sure I will be keeping up with the author's website to see if she uncovers any more pieces of this mysterious puzzle.
This book is a must-read for anyone that enjoys a good mystery, a good historical fiction, or simply a great novel.
