Author: Rick Barry
Genre: Christian suspense
Release date: October 20, 2020
Born in the final days of Nazi Germany, an underground organization is alive, growing, and manipulating events in our world today …
The survivor of a secret German experiment in 1943, Roger Greene possesses a unique physiology. To this day, his body remains youthful and heals quickly. In exchange for information about the mysterious Heritage Organization that Roger once escaped, the CIA has given him a new identity and pulled strings to get him into the modern U.S. Air Force.
Now, Roger’s main thrills are serving his country in an F-35 and spending time with Katherine, the love of his life. Suddenly, the CIA shows up and drops a bombshell—evidence that Sophie, the woman who Roger believed had died helping him escape, is alive. The Heritage Organization is holding her and others prisoner in an unknown location.
Honor-bound to rescue the woman who risked her life for him, Roger accepts temporary duties with the CIA. But just when the mission is already straining his relationship with Katherine, Roger becomes a murder suspect. A fugitive, he continues alone the mission to find Sophie. What he discovers lands this pilot deep inside a shadowy network intent on world domination.
Will Roger’s faith carry him through this quest—or will those tracking him succeed in snuffing out his long life once and for all?
A sensational standalone story, Rick Barry’s sequel to The Methuselah Project launches you into an unforgettable journey through danger, suspense, hope, and love—an experience that will keep you turning pages well into the night!

About the Author
More from Rick
More than once, I’ve told friends that if I could write only one novel in my life, The Methuselah Project is the one I’d choose. After all, that inspirational suspense story has equal appeal for men and women readers. Plus, its hero—Captain Roger Greene—is such a fun character. He’s patriotic, handsome, humble, conscientious, and he possesses a sense of humor that carries him through tough times. Sure, it’s a suspense story, but it also includes a satisfying touch of romance.
However, with the publication of its standalone follow-up, Methuselah Project S.O.S., I might have to revise my statement. In this second book I worked hard to raise the stakes, to increase the danger, and to ramp up the tension. Also, in this book we get much better acquainted with the main characters, and the romance deepens. (Sorry, no spoilers!) Even though Roger Greene and his girlfriend Katherine are my own inventions, I’ve really grown to love these two. Judging by reviews, readers have, too!
I confess that S.O.S. was harder to write than the first book. My brain insists on details and believability. For me to write it, the plot of S.O.S. compelled me to research a variety of subjects—the CIA, the Air Force, escape and evasion techniques, functional booby traps, and more. The resulting story is a roller coaster ride of action and emotions.
So, what gives me as author the most joy from these books? Probably the reviews where readers begin, “I don’t usually read this kind of book”—but then tell why they absolutely loved it. Who knows, maybe you’ll be the next one to say so!
I enjoyed the first book and was excited to read this follow up book. The author demonstrates how to maneuver a story rich in danger, intrigue and action. I love how we get to know the main characters in a deeper way. Their main goal is to survive and find freedom. I know if I went to a lab and saw bodies floating in a tube I would run as fast as I could. The author gives details that make it easy to visualize the scenes unfold right before your eyes.
The idea of cloning is an uneasy feeling as the main character discovers secrets about himself and a project that could change the human race. I cringed just thinking what power does to a person. Wanting to be in control can destroy the world as we know it if the project succeeds. Roger is determined to stop the evil that is trying to take over. He is desperate to save someone special to him and finds himself asking God for help. There is a definite theme of trusting God weaved throughout the story.
The ending is packed with action and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I read as fast as I could to find out what would happen next. I encourage readers to look at the questions provided by the author at the end of the book. One in particular stood out to me. It talks about a character that would “stay in charge of his own destiny.” It makes me take a deeper look at my faith. Do I trust God with my destiny, or do I think I can do things on my own?
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
