The Shiro Project by David Khara
This great thriller won’t be released until November and you get a sneaky peeky NOW! Hold on to your croissants friends!
After The Bleiberg Project, the Consortium thriller series continues with The Shiro Project. Reporter Branislav Poborsky is running away from a bad marriage, when he witnesses the Czech army covering up the extermination of an entire village. Saved in extremis by the gentle-giant Mossad agent Eytan Morgenstern, he is thrown into a troubling race to defuse a larger-than-life conspiracy. After Eytan’s mentor is kidnapped, he must join forces with his arch-rival to put an end to a mysterious group that has weapons of mass destruction. Once again, the atrocities of World War II come back to haunt the modern world. What links exist between Japanese camps in China in the 1940s, a US Army research center in the 1950s, and the deadly threat Eytan faces today? From Prague to Tokyo, with stops in Ireland, yesterday’s enemies become today’s best allies and 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?
Here are a few thoughts from the author, David:
The Bleiberg Project introduced Eytan Morgenstern, a larger-than-life hero. Part of the fun in creating the character was to let readers believe he was a threat when, at the middle of the book, they realized he was the actual hero of the series.
In The Shiro Project, the action is centered on his psychology. From a seemingly cold and remorseless killer, Eytan proves to be a much more complex, with a code of honor of his own, and much more sensibility than one could expect. In this adventure, he teams up with Elena, his nemesis in The Bleiberg Project, to save Eli Karman, his mentor, who turns out to be much more than that in a rather unexpected way.
In the second book of the trilogy, I wanted to go deeper into the characters, but I also wanted to stick more to historical facts than I did in the first book. And after what happened in Europe during the war, I decided would work on the experiments led by Japanese scientists in China.
Mon dieu. Incredible, right?
