on June 16, 2016

Format: Paperback

On August 15, 1939, the cabin of a US-built British aircraft caught on fire and crashed near a bridge in Denmark under mysterious circumstances. The pilot survived and all the passengers perished. The group of passengers on board included: a German corporate lawyer, two employees of Standard Oil of New Jersey, additional crewmember, an English Member of Parliament, and the grandfather of the author, M.C.V. Shortly afterward, World War II began.

Under a shroud of secrecy and mystery, the author embarked on a twenty-year labor of love of meticulous, copious research and interesting interviews in search of answers. This unique novel, which could easily fall under historical fiction, mystery, and memoir, introduces the reader to an interesting cast of characters that include, the author; Bill, a real man the author has never met; a fictional young woman named Maggie; and of course, a few psychics who specialize in past life regression. You’re in for quite a ride with this unique story!

Does the author solve the mystery? You’ll just have to read “The Bridges of Death” to find out. I heard there is a sequel in the works, which should make for an interesting read. I recommend this well-researched mystery romance about a little known historical event to readers of history, historical fiction, mystery, and autobiography. I look forward to more from this author.
