“A thrill-a-minute romp from Prague to Tokyo...”

“As I read David Khara’s The Shiro Project, I was reminded of Immobility by Brian Evanson. The story of two giants created for the sole purpose of completing a task. While Evanson’s fine novel is a post-apocalyptic masterpiece, The Shiro Project leads us into a plot that is the beginning of the end of the world. For years, dating back to Japanese prisoner-of-war camps and followed up by US Army research in the late 1950s, governments have been tampering with and collecting viruses to monitor, understand, and afflict weapons of mass-destruction on their unsuspecting enemies. The Nazi’s evil geniuses, in an effort to produce the Master Race, have built almost Frankensteinish models, enlarged humans that live extended life-spans, in an effort to repopulate the world with a super-human species. Two such characters survived. One, Eytan, fights for good, and had been recruited in to the Mossad. The other, his female counter-part, Elena, works for evil under the command of the Consortium. Eli, Eytan’s control, a man he loved like a father, is kidnapped by the Consortium and the two assassins are forced to work together. They must discover who stole a viral strain of an airborne virus, taken by terrorists for a biological attack, and report back to The Cypher with the information on where they’re stored and who stole them. In a thrill-a-minute romp from Prague to Tokyo, the two adversaries form a link of mutual trust as they are thrust headfirst in the rush to avoid the coming apocalypse and expose the truth of the evil that men do. —Suspense Magazine
