Centralia by Mike Dellosso
First off, I should probably tell you that I love the Bourne Identity movies, all of them. I've watched them all several times and have enjoyed them all. Now, the books, I was never able to get past the first chapter. It's been a long time since I tried, so I don't really remember why at this point, but I was a little sad that I didn't enjoy them as much as the movies at the time.
With all that being said, I thoroughly enjoyed Mike Dellosso's Centralia. And I'm a little disappointed that I have to wait until 2016 to read the next installment!
The story starts out with Peter Ryan awaking and looking for his wife and child, who he assumes have left early for the day. But after a phone call to a friend, he discovers that they were in a car accident two months ago. Ryan has an intense feeling that something isn't right and after discovering a note from his daughter that leads him on a journey to discover them, the adventure begins.
Ryan weaves his way through a seemingly never ending web of lies that he has been told and believes. He continues searching for his wife and daughter, knowing deep within him that they are alive and that finding them will help answer all of the questions that keep bubbling up.
The story is fast paced and full of twists and turns. Ryan's faith plays an integral part of the story and ultimately becomes the key for the answers he's been searching for.
Highly recommend this book, especially if you're into government conspiracy theories or action mysteries. It's a great weekend read!
