Publisher's Summary

In 1863 a meeting takes place between legendary war Ieaders - a secret alliance that will never show up in any American history books. A clandestine arrangement has been struck for a single chance to heal a war-torn nation. The mission is to bring the greatest prize in the world back to American soil - remnants of prehistory's greatest ship and most startling mystery. The prize may lie on a mountaintop inside the fierce Ottoman Empire, yet the men who seek it are only days away from trying to kill one another.

In 2007 America's darkest agency, known to only a privileged few as the Event Group, has been tasked by the president to bring home a famous former astronaut who was on a mission to bring back the greatest biblical artifact - Noah's Ark. It will be up to the newly installed director of security at Department 5656, Major Jack Collins, and his team of brilliant men and women to rescue the archeological expedition from forces that will kill to keep the mysterious artifacts inside the territorial borders of Turkey.

    Story
    "A Perfect Prequel for the Event Group"

    This was another excellent installment to the Event Group. The story explores the origins of the Group, and what was essentially the founding mission. I wasn't sure that I'd enjoy it, as it introduces a whole new cast of characters from an earlier time. But it didn't take long until I was hooked.

    The characters were fascinating, once I could keep them straight as to who was who. And an interesting aside was a really interesting look into the feelings of the various people following the American Civil War. The story offered a view into that situation that I really didn't expect.

    Although the story didn't tie up as neatly as I'd expected, it still was a satisfying tale, with all of Golemon's trademark spookiness, character development, and plausibility.

    As for Richard Poe? He is the Event Group. I can't imagine listening to an Event Group book without him as the narrator. His in-imitable style defines the group, and added one more satisfying element to the story.

    Story
    "David Golemon Did It Again"

    The Mountain was a great reading experience. I could not stop listening to the story nor put the book down! David Golemon's Event Group Series are some of best book to read. The Mountain Pre-qual brings a new direction for the reader and opens new story lines and characters to enjoy.

    Story
    "Excellent story and narration."
    If you could sum up The Mountain in three words, what would they be?

    Thrilling, humorous and unexpected


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I found the plot quite thrilling and entertaining.


    What does Richard Poe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does a great job of creating a cast of distinct characters. I was really impressed by his ability to pull off so many different characters with a wide variety of accents and regional dialects.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    What they found on the mountain was more than they were looking for.

    "Good...but not what I expected"

    Don't get me wrong...this is a really good book. I love this author and was anxiously waiting for the next Event Group book. Finally, it's here...or so I thought. This book is really a back story for one of the artifacts. I was truly disappointed that I only got about 10 minutes of Jack and the gang. if your looking for an entertaining story, you got it. If your looking for an Event Group thriller, save your money.
