TIFFIN, Ohio (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
It was late in autumn in nineteen-hundred and ninety. Flying saucer mania was rampant. The American public was very curious about such mysterious things as, the paranormal, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and the Bermuda Triangle. For the most part, the public was unaware of the low profile studies into these phenomena conducted by the government. These secret studies were assigned to various branches of the military complex. The U.S. Navy’s part in this on-going research was Project Houdini. Its mission was to determine the cause of how over 500 ships and planes, as well as their attending personnel, had vanished into the area better known as the Bermuda Triangle and were never seen again.
Project Houdini, a sci-fi mystery novel written by Thom Fillinger tells the story of Admiral Nathan Summerfield and the entire Project Houdini exploration team that had undergone into the Bermuda Triangle but never comes out. Project Houdini was designed to discover the reason for the disappearance of ships, planes and personnel in that area. However, as Summerfield’s team went there, all contact had been broken and the Navy couldn’t find a way to recover them. All nine members and their plane vanished without any communication for over a year. It went into a a place known as Xenos, a twin of Atlantis, created within another dimension. But one day over the Atlantic, the plane reappeared. It had a partial collision with a commercial flight. The Navy plane’s tail shredded and went down, off the coast of Florida. A fishing boat found Alan Maxwell, a veteran journalist who was with the team and he is floating in an inflatable vest. His legs were badly mangled and he is unconscious while a US Navy helicopter attempts to make a rescue.
In an effort to keep the lid on this former naval officer, Alan Maxwell’s account of the terrible secret that the Project Houdini team had discovered, the project’s new director, egocentric Admiral Scott and his henchman Captain Sadowski, had the reporter subjected to a high-tech brainwashing technique. They then, in order to maintain anonymity, had him moved from one hospital to another. Only newspaper editor Harry Konenberg’s stubborn belief in his veteran reporter defied the odds and kept Alan Maxwell’s remarkable story from being systematically sucked into an all-consuming National Security vacuum.
Project Houdini is a highly entertaining read that will take readers into a fascinating story that presents a very interesting plot about strange, mysterious secrets and disappearances occurring in the Bermuda Triangle and government conspiracies to hide the truth from the public under the guise of national security. Author Thom Fillinger has masterfully crafted an intriguing novel that will sure to catch the interest and stir the curiosity of most sci-fi readers who are into the secrets and mysteries genre.
