Overview

The truth can be a dangerous thing.

Terrorism, duty, and personal safety collide when Jake Pendleton, an investigator for the NTSB, is called to investigate an aircraft accident in Savannah, Georgia during the St. Patrick's Day celebration. The accident, which at first appears to be quite run-of-the-mill, turns out to be anything but. Since Jake is not willing to pretend there are no suspicious circumstances and more than the usual share of rather unlikely "coincidences," he sets off a veritable avalanche of secrets, violence and treachery. Aided by an unlikely partner, Gregg Kaplan, the air traffic controller who was the last person in contact with the airplane that crashed, Jake sets out to untangle the webs of deceit and to find a vicious killer.

Nothing is as it seems, nobody is who you thought them to be.
Nothing is sacred.
Nobody is safe.

I loved the book! I like thrillers and this was awesome! I really love trying to guess all the twists before the author reveals them. This one had several surprises that had me guessing and kept me on the edge of my seat trying to read fast enough to find out if I was right! It started out a little too gory to my liking, but the story pulled me in and held me. I can't wait until his next one! Great job, Chuck!

Chuck Barrett`s new book, The Savannah Project, is indeed a thriller! I was glued to the book to the very end! Both, lads and lassies will enjoy it for different reasons. The guys especially will like the weapon descriptions and all the bloody, gruesome details. A spectacular bonus is the intellectual humor and insertions of Savannah, Georgia and Irish history! Can't wait for the sequel!!!

After what appears to be a routine aircraft accident during a St. Patrick's Day celebration, NTSB investigator Jake Pendelton is called to Savannah to explore the matter further. What he finds, though, arouses his deepest suspicions and soon sets off a deadly chain of events - the ultimate effects of which could topple governments...so, suddenly thrust into a race against time, it's up to Jake to uncover the true cause of the crash before the killer strikes again - but only if he can avoid falling prey to a stealthy assassin tracking his every move... The Savannah Project is a bona fide suspense thriller. Rife with abundant mystery and intrigue, author Chuck Barrett's standout tale takes the reader on a tortuous path of all-engrossing action and adventure. In superlative fashion, Barrett masterfully unfolds the plot at breakneck pace while keeping the reader fully engaged in the story, ensuring that he/she doesn't miss a thing all the way up to the riveting climax. Such a feat is not an easy one to pull off - even for the most seasoned scribe - but Barrett shows his considerable literary skill in crafting a compelling tale guaranteed to hold you at rapt attention until the very end. A highly recommended instant classic. Renee Washburn Apex Reviews

As a thriller lover, I really enjoyed this book. As a first novel it amazed me of how everything tied together -- if given time. You really have to read it all, it will make sense and makes you want to read the next book. It is fiction, so authors get a little room for plausibility. What fun would it be to read about only things that are "plausible." What I've found in life is that often the most implausible things happen. This whole series (The Toymaker and Breach of Power) has more twists and turns than the Tail of the Dragon and has some really likable (and unlikable!) characters. Not everything gets tied up with a pretty little bow, but that's why there are two more books (so far) in the series. If you like Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, Stephen Coonts, David Baldacci, Ben Coes... you should give this series a shot.

The premise is interesting, but the plot is highly implausible and seemingly patched together in a less-than-coherent style. The story jumps around from childhood Irish terrorists to Dallas and Savannah with a lot of murders. I wanted to like it, but gave up with about 25% unread.

This book took far too long to get into. I very, very rarely give up on a book and I almost deleted this one after a couple of hundred pages. In the end, it was worth it, but it sure took a lot of patience to get there.
