Project Echo is Don’s latest book, a science fiction historical novel set both after and during World War II.
In 1949, Army G2 Captain Jarrett Webber is selected for an above top-secret mission: enter a captured experimental and as-yet-untested German time machine, known as Die Glocke, and travel back to 1942. His assignment: to retrieve German SS Lieutenant Colonel Adolf Eichmann, who has traveled back to 1942 using a second Die Glocke device in an attempt to change the outcome of World War II.
Army G2 intelligence believes Eichmann’s mission is to warn Japan of the upcoming Battle of Midway, necessitating the redeployment of US assets from Europe, and buying Germany time to finish their own atomic bomb. Even more sinister, Eichmann intends to accelerate the Holocaust, to complete the Final Solution.
Back in 1949, with the help of the Catholic Church, G2 intelligence is able to monitor Jarrett’s progress using the Chronovisor – a device invented by a brilliant Benedictine Monk that allows a viewer to literally see any moment in history.
Eichmann must be returned alive to 1949. Additionally, Jarrett cannot kill anyone for fear of altering the future. Unable to trust anyone, and running out of time, he must overcome insurmountable odds to complete his mission.
Jarrett will do whatever it takes-including sacrificing himself to save the future.
