My choice of book lead me down memory lane. As you all may or may not remember, I used to have decently long, luscious blonde locks. Just thinking about it causes me to reminisce on all the good times we had. Anywho, while sporting this look, it was coincidentally about the time that the movie Thor came out, and as you all can probably guess I was dubbed, Thor; I have to admit I embraced it. So, my choice of book is written by auther Brad Thor and is a New York Times Bestselling Author. His book, “The Athena Project” is a captivating thriller that is uniquely different than most covert-ops, military-style novels.
Thor develops a story in which a top-secret counterterrorism force is sent to track down those responsible for a bombing in Rome. The agents involved in the search are some of the world’s most talented, skilled, deadly, and fearsome but these agents aren’t your typical jar heads. Nope. This elite group is set apart by one aspect; their gender. The book details the missions of four women assigned with tracking down the man responsible for providing the explosives used in the bombings in Rome. Codenamed The Athena Project, the mission leads these four incredible women down a deadly road that unveils some of the nations best-kept secrets.
Eventually the book explodes in three directions in which three separate national security events come into play; one in Rome, South America, and even on the homefront in Colorado. This book sparked my interest even more with its mention of the Denver International Airport. For those of you who don’t know, there is a conspiracy theory that has been floating around concerning the Denver airport. It is pretty creepy so be advised. I won’t spill the beans but there has been much speculation surrounding the construction of the airport; namely the underground tunnels and shape of the airport. Check out the link below. These conspiracy theories always get a rise out of me.
