REVIEW: "THE BRIDGE OF DEATHS" - by M.C.V. Egan


THE BRIDGE OF DEATHS
by M.C.V. Egan

REVIEWED BY: Ellen Fritz

OVERVIEW

On August 15th 1939, at the brink of World War II, an English plane crashed and sunk in Danish waters. Five deaths were reported: two Standard Oil of New Jersey employees, a German Corporate Lawyer, an English member of Parliament, and a crew member for the airline. Here is a conceivable version of the events.

REVIEW

With the Second World War a mere two weeks away, the crash of an airplane in Danish waters near a bridge called Storstromsbroen, did not get the attention it would have had today or in times of peace. While Bill is looking for psychological answers to his recurring nightmares, he meets Maggie who is very familiar with the bridge in his dreams.  She urges him to look for these answers through past life regression therapy.  They join forces with Catalina whose grandfather also died in the same accident that haunts Bill's dreams. 

As I genuinely enjoy books with realistic and mostly true accounts of past lives, parapsychology and the findings of psychics, this book had me interested from the very beginning.  Apart from the gripping accounts of past life regression therapy, I was fascinated by the findings of the psychics who handled/touched the items which Catalina could give them, which belonged to victims of the crash.  Add to this the very interesting and extremely well researched historical facts and you have a book that will grab and hold your attention up to the last page.

Were they spies or just innocent people travelling from one place to another?  Were they politicians in disguise on a clandestine mission? The detailed research into the lives of each of the five passengers on the plane serves to increase the suspense until I could hardly wait to see the solution to the mystery, and the developing romantic relationship between Bill and Maggie added a sweet and gentle touch to the story.

A fascinating combination of history, mystery, romance, psychology and parapsychology, I truly admire Ms. Egan for the amount of research she put into this book.  For anybody who cares to read up more on the Second World War and the time just before then, the author has all her research resources neatly listed.  I highly recommend this book for anybody who has a keen interest in the history of World War 2, parapsychology and the slightly unusual.  You’ll find all you could hope for in this book, as well as a good mystery. “The Bridge of Deaths” will appeal to a great variety of readers.
