'The Bleiberg Project' by David S. Khara (with translation by Simon John) is a pretty good ride, but I had to give it quite a few pages before I decided that. It's part of a series, but this book is a good standalone adventure.
The story takes place in the present but reaches all the way back to 1942. In the modern time, Jay is a stockbroker and playboy who lives to drown himself in women and alcohol every night. That is, until he gets the call that his estranged father has been killed. Clues around his father's death lead to Jay being on the run with a pretty CIA bodyguard and being chased by a Mossad agent. They find themselves in Europe with a mystery that goes back to World War 2. Who was Jay's father and why did he leave the family? Who is Bleiberg and what was he doing for the Nazis?
I liked it, but initially the Jay character really annoyed me. I really didn't like him. The other characters were fine. The translation is good and the story really moves along. I look forward to reading further books in the series.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Le French Books and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
