Roger Greene is a flying ace during World War II. While on a mission his plane is shot down in enemy territory. Expecting to be taken to a prisoner of war camp, he's surprised to find himself carted to a lab of sorts.
While imprisoned, he's subjected to a series of tests by a mad scientist who claims he's found a way to allow a man to live for a thousand years. The doc's prognosis seems farfetched... until Roger survives a bombing with barely a scratch and finds himself outliving his original captors.
When he breaks free seventy years later, he hasn't aged a single day. Can he convince Katherine Mueller his story isn't as implausible as it sounds? Will she help him to be free of the organization that has held him captive?
Rick Barry weaves a delightful tale set in World War II. I found it gripping and didn't want to put it down to go about my daily tasks. :) I highly recommend his work. Rick has a way of drawing you in and not letting you go until the novel is completed.
