Overview

The World on the Brink of Disaster

In Books One (The Caves of Etretat) and Two (The Four Books of Etretat), Paul Sirenne is led to discover a complex of hidden caves in the cliffs of Etretat, France. Chased by an immortal serial killer, and assisted by the Abbey, a thousand-year old organization, Sirenne, becoming an immortal himself, is given control of the caves, to prepare for an ultimate confrontation against the Greyman, the oldest immortal on earth. Taken by surprise, Sirenne and the complex of caves barely survive an attack by American mercenaries.

In Book Three, the world is in chaos. Countless disasters are occurring everywhere and a pandemic disease is killing all children in the womb. People and countries, desperate for a solution, are demanding Sirenne's immortality cure. Sirenne knows it's not the true answer and is desperately trying to solve the clues laid out by Maurice Leblanc and the Abbey, looking for the One Book. Changed by his immortality, he develops new senses which give him an increasingly different perspective on everything he sees. At the same time, all events seem to be converging on him. Weissmuller, the immortal serial killer is circling closer and closer.

'The One Book of Etretat' is the third in a four-book epic adventure following Paul Sirenne, an average man unknowingly manipulated into becoming the key in the final phase of a complex conspiracy spanning millennia. Inextricably woven into history, the series re-writes everything we know in a non-stop rollercoaster of a ride where nothing is ever as it seems.

Meet the Author

Born in Ottawa, fifty-two years ago, I have been the owner of a used bookstore I opened in Ontario, since 1990. I have been writing since I was ten. Beginning with poetry, I quickly moved on to short stories and non-fiction pieces. I stayed in that format for many years, eventually self-publishing a franchise manual, as well as a variety of booklets.
Having semi-retired from the bookstore, I embarked on the project of writing my first serious novel, which I expanded to a four-book series after discovering an incredible mystery hidden within a French author's books.
My interests are eclectic. I like Quantum Physics,Cosmology, history, archaeology, science in general, mechanics, free power, recycling and re-use. I'm a good handyman and can usually fix just about anything. I'm good with computers. I love movies, both good and bad, preferring action and war movies. I can draw and paint fairly well but am so obsessed with perspective and light that I cannot think of much else. I am too detail-oriented.
I have been around books all my life. In my mid-forties, I decided to focus on writing as my future job. It took me five years to learn the trade. Now I know how fast I can write and how to develop my story and characters. I always wage an internal war to decide if my next story is going to be a mild mystery or a big stake epic. So far the big stakes are winning

    The Good┬┐ The Caves of Etretat, Book Three of Four: The One Book

    The Good…
    The Caves of Etretat, Book Three of Four: The One Book of Etretat was by far the most exciting of the four books. This one had me
    turning pages quickly to find out what would happen next.

    The Weismuller Recollections make much more sense in this story and add a wonderful bit of tension. It was also interesting to see
    how Weismuller was able to be a step ahead of Paul Sirenne and keep out of reach of the Abbey, not to mention making me wonder at
    some of the coincidences that helped this character achieve his goals.

    The Not-so-good…
    Like the Weismuller Recollections in book two, the Greyman Chronicles do not seem to make sense in this part of the story. Also, if
    you figured out what was going on with Inspector Norton in book one, most of the recollections in this book will feel unnecessary. They
    are interesting, but I felt they could have been skipped altogether without harming the story.

    Unfortunately, the author runs afoul of one of my pet peeves in this book. He puts in the mouth of Father Plantagenet a saying many
    people attribute to the Bible: God saves them who save themselves. While this saying works well with the entirety of the Caves of
    Etretat books, it is not a quote from the Bible and is, in fact, a quote most often attributed to Benjamin Franklin. Someone as well versed
    in theology as Father Plantagenet supposedly is, would be unlikely to say something like this when his entire vocation rests upon the
    belief that God saves those who cannot save themselves.

    Again, while I’m sure it wasn’t intended, the Americans in the story made me laugh. They were more or less caricatures of every movie
    I’ve seen where the military decides to go in with guns blazing because their motto seems to be “Shoot first. Ask questions later.” There
    were no redeeming qualities to these characters, no reason to feel they were in any way justified in their thinking.

    The Overall…
    While this book was a page turner, I would only recommend The One Book of Etretat (The Sirenne Saga) by Matt Chatelain if you plan
    to finish the entire series because it will be necessary to understand book four.
