Centralia by Mike Dellosso is book one in the Jed Patrick series. Peter Ryan wakes up and can’t find his wife and daughter. A call to friends tells him they died in a car accident months earlier, and he does not remember. He does not feel they are dead and starts searching the house. He finds a note hidden in a film canister that his daughter has written, “Daddy, we went to Centralia”. He does not know what Centralia is but doesn’t have time to find out as three men come into his house and he kills them all. He then goes to a former friends home and a man shows up there as well. This starts the long adventure of Peter running for his life and trying to find out if his wife and daughter are alive.
Peter is a former Army Ranger who was given a new memory and he is having flashes of his old memory as well as other memories that were programmed. One of the memories that keeps coming back to him is to pray and to have faith.
WOW! This book is just so full of action and suspense at times it is hard to follow. But the suspense is so much that once I started reading the book it was really hard to put down. This is not a book for everyone. There is a lot of violence and death. The topic is very mature and in depth. I typically do not like to read or watch stories with violence but who is Peter Ryan, is his wife and daughter alive, who are the guys after him, will he get away, will he remember who he really is? I have the second book and can’t wait to start reading it to find out the answers.
