In 1943 the world was in the throes of World War II and it was an incredibly rough time for all involved. Now add on the fact that you are a fighter pilot that crash lands smack dab in the middle of Nazi Germany. Roger Greene finds himself as a prisoner as well as a very unwilling participant in a frighteningly bizarre experiment – The Methuselah Project.
Seventy years have passed since that fateful day for Roger, he looks no older today than he did in 1943. After all of his years in captivity his hope began to fade and his sanity was only hanging on by a thread – that is until he asked for a Bible and is renewed in his spirit.
When in the midst of a harrowing escape Roger realizes that he has been misled for nearly three quarters of a century. The world has changed dramatically and Roger is more lost than he ever was before.
Now on the run from the secret society that runs the Methuselah Project will Roger be able to make anyone believe his crazy story?
Can he enlist the help of beautiful Katherine Mueller even after he finds out that she is working for the organization that he is trying to evade?
This was such an interesting story! Once I got deeper into the story the more I had to read to find out what was going to happen. Ooooh, how I love a good suspense story! This ones fits the bill.
Rick Barry lays a wonderful foundation for the story and reels you in with the emotional despair of the main character Roger. I become so wrapped up in the story that there was no option for me other than to complete the entire book.
I cheered. I cried. And I had more moments of “oh no!” than I have with any book recently.
I loved the intricate details that Roger shared about his past and that his one hope upon escaping was to make it “home”.
The book was a twisting, turning, mind-boggling experience that any lover of suspense will enjoy. The historical details were a wonderfully well done touch that made the story truly come to life. The Christian aspect of the story was so well laid out. The deeply held convictions made for some interesting talk among the characters. Well done!
More About The Book
The Methuselah Project (Kregel, September 2015)
Nazi scientists started many experiments. One never ended.
Roger Greene is a war hero. Raised in an orphanage, the only birthright he knows is the feeling that he was born to fly. Flying against the Axis Powers in World War II is everything he always dreamed—until the day he’s shot down and lands in the hands of the enemy.
When Allied bombs destroy both his prison and the mad genius experimenting on POWs, Roger survives. Within hours, his wounds miraculously heal, thanks to those experiments. The Methuselah Project is a success—but this ace is still not free. Seventy years later, Roger hasn’t aged a day, but he has nearly gone insane. This isn’t Captain America—just a lousy existence only made passable by a newfound faith. The Bible provides the only reliable anchor for Roger’s sanity and his soul. When he finally escapes, there’s no angelic promise or personal prophecy of deliverance, just confusion. It’s 2015—and the world has become an unrecognizable place.
Katherine Mueller—crack shot, genius, and real Southern Belle—offers to help him find his way home. Can he convince her of the truth of his crazy story? Can he continue to trust her when he finds out she works for the very organization he’s trying to flee?
Thrown right into pulse-pounding action from the first page, readers will find themselves transported back in time to a believable, full-colored past, and then catapulted into the present once more. The historical back-and-forth adds a constantly moving element of suspense to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
