David Khara, the author of the Consortium Thriller series, talks about the series—and in particular about The Morgenstern Project, his most recent release in English—at the blog Queen of All She Reads.
In this interesting post, he says, "The Consortium thriller series is all about resistance and ethics—resistance against barbarism and fascism, as well as resistance against our own instincts, the dark sides of our souls. As for ethics, well, the term “human experiments” says it all. And of course, Eytan Morg, the hero of the series, embodies these two essential issues. In a way, he is even stuck between them, as we see in The Morgenstern Project.
Half of the book tells us more about Eytan’s past in a Polish Home Army in the 1940s, the other half, set in the present day, shows how a special commando is created by the US army. This commando is made of soldiers severely wounded on the battlefield, reconstructed with new-generation prosthetics. Sounds a little bit like the “Six Million Dollar Man,” doesn’t it?
Well, if you think this is mere fantasy, coming straight from the tortured brain of a French writer, you are mistaken. Okay, partly mistaken…"
