The Lance" is Alex Lukeman's second novel about The Project, a top secret . For those like myself who read "White Jade," Lukeman's first Project novel, this one will seem very familiar. This book has pretty much the same strengths and weaknesses as the earlier Project story. This time out, the plot involves a neo-Nazi conspiracy to start a Mideast war between Israel and its neighbors and use this to wreak havoc in the United States.

Nick watched a medical team load Rivka onto a gurney. They'd given her a shot of something and she was out of it, her dusky skin the color of milk. He called Ari. "Is she all right?". The medics are here, she's on her way to Hadassah. We went through the door of my room and someone started shooting from the balcony. We fired and he went over the edge. She took one all the way through.

This title was my first exposure to "The PROJECT". I did enjoy the story and the characters. I plan to read the other titles in this series (I already have Black Harvest (The PROJECT) on my Kindle). I just found this story not as complex or detailed as a typical James Rollins tale, such as: Map of Bones: A Sigma Force Novel or a Clive Clusser tale like: The Mediterranean Caper (Dirk Pitt Adventure). I would say a typical Rollins book is like a big buget movie, but a PROJECT book is more like a Made for TV movie. A good movie, but with a lower budget to spend on bells and whistles. Very much like comparing Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (Special Edition) to the TV movie Librarian : The Curse Of The Judas Chalice. I love them both. The Lance is light thriller reading, and like I said, I will try other PROJECT titles and see if the author progresses as he adds more titles to this series.

"The Lance" is Alex Lukeman's second novel about The Project, a top secret U.S. government intelligence agency that once again gets involved in a deadly international plot involving the United States. For those like myself who read "White Jade," Lukeman's first Project novel, this one will seem very familiar. This book has pretty much the same strengths and weaknesses as the earlier Project story.

This time out, the plot involves a neo-Nazi conspiracy to start a Mideast war between Israel and its neighbors and use this to wreak havoc in the United States. The conspirators include some highly placed officials in the U.S. Government, so the only people the President can trust are a handful of Project agents, including top agent Nick Carter and new recruit, Selena Conner, who became Nick's confidante and lover during the first book. Nick stumbles across a threat to assassinate the President while on a trip to Israel, which gets the Project right in the middle of the conspiracy.

Lukeman is very good at setting up small scale action pieces, and there are plenty of shootouts and similar action scenes in this one. The description of the action and weaponry seems highly authentic, and there's some genuine suspense whenever Nick gets in the middle of the villains' schemes. Unfortunately, once we get past the various set pieces, we're left with a rather sketchy conspiracy which in real life would require a lot more resources and coordination than the handful of thugs and hitmen who tangle with Nick throughout the book. It's a short novel and Lukeman doesn't have time or the ability to set up a plausible progression of events. Instead we get brief statements here and there about the rapid spiral of escalating events. Another flaw in this book, as in "White Jade," are the stock villains. Even though some of the bad guys are U.S. government officials, they all carry on like stock Nazis straight out of a 1943 espionage film, carrying on about the Master Race.

Lukeman is making progress in dealing with Nick Carter's personal issues in this novel. As was disclosed in "White Jade," Carter has to deal with some bad things that happened during his service in Afghanistan as well as still trying cope with the tragic loss of his girl friend years earlier. "The Lance" provides deeper insight into Carter's psychological problems, and his relationship with Selena gets more serious and more interesting for readers.

So far, in two Project novels, Carter, Selena, and a handful of associates have stopped two plots that could have resulted in nuclear war or the overthrow of the U.S. government, or both. In both cases, however, the action sequences portrayed are distinctly smaller scale. Even the climax of "The Lance," when Carter takes on the high command of the neo-Nazi conspiracy, is small scale. The conspirators, a number of powerful political and industrial figures, have only a handful of guards protecting them, making it ridiculously easy for Nick to get in a position for a final showdown.

Alex Lukeman is a writer whose strengths are portraying action sequences involving a handful of characters and developing the personality of his hero, Nick Carter. Unforunately, he has placed his characters in the middle of a major international conspiracy that he is unable to convincingly describe. Instead of continuing to have Nick Carter and the Project unconvincingly save the U.S. from total annihilation or overthrow or both in each book, the stories would be considerably more interesting if they involved Carter in a more credible storyline.

I love it when I stumble on a series that is well in progress, which means I don't have to wait for the next book to come out. So far, this is one of those series, one that I can't say no to. This book is a standalone that follows on the heels of Book one. The characters are the same, but we have a new storyline. In book one, the Project was up against men set on overthrowing the Chinese government. In this book, it's men with ties to the past, ruthless men whose plan is to start a world war that will position them for world domination. It's a plan initiated during WWII. And a recent discovery in Antarctica has put the plan in play.

If you're even remotely interested in Germany during Hitler's reign, and the religious artifacts collected from the time of Jesus, and how devastating the mixture of the two could be, then you should read this book. The research and story go together so perfectly, that the whole story seems shockingly plausible. The characters are well thought out, and the events that are in the book are exciting, and brilliantly planned.

I loved the adventures, and how the pieces of the puzzle all came together at the end. I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Make sure to read the real facts that were blended so beautifully into the fictional story, at the back of the book after the story ends. The historical background that inspired this book is also quite intriguing. If you miss that, then you've missed some very important facts that give credibility to this interpretation of what might have been.

If Hitler's beliefs and superstitions about the religious and magical relics that he collected from around the world had been more useful, and his attempt to create the perfect Arian race had shown more promise and productivity, the world today as we know it, wouldn't exist. How fortunate for everyone, that he failed in those particular endeavors. Thank you, Alex Luckman, for such a wonderful book!
