Publisher's summary

Vera is an analyst who wants to find enough time outside of work to learn to love jazz. She can't. Because she's swept up into the world of a secret nation that claims to have guided world events for centuries. Who are they? Why do they think Vera is the key to saving the world? And why do they want to kill her brother?

Another good out of the box Tom Merritt book!

I've enjoyed Tom's other books because the formula for the story isn't what is expected or troupe-filled to appease the genre reader. Project V. E. R. A. is no different. I wasn't ever quite sure where the story was going to end up and it was intelligent to keep me not wanting to miss anything.

The voice acting was good. Some of it was a bit subdued yet maybe that was intentional.

Fine Novella with SciFi twist

What a fine story and tuned and polished style of dense story telling about a real or unreal society. Thanks Tom Merritt!

A good short read

I got a kick out of Mr. Merritt's epistolary tale of a hidden society managing world events to keep their secret safe. I listened to the audio version of the story with several narrators. Production quality is excellent and kept me interested in a story that leaps around the world with multiple points-of-view. I was a little shocked at the way the story ends. I had to take a moment to process events before continuing to the final chapter. Overall, an entertaining and enjoyable read. I received a free copy of the audiobook from the author for review.

Fun & immersive sci-fi book!

I normally prefer a single narrator and sans sound effects on audio books. But the characters and the story led me down a path where I wanted to listen to the book several times in a row! Ans now crave the acting in the audio. Love the story and the narration.

Great Book

Enjoyed several books by Tom Merrit particularly the Pilot X series. Project VERA was an interesting
book to listen to and the multiple cast narration was great. Also wasn't sure where the story was going to go next too.


Excellent book

Fascinating premise - great execution!

I really enjoyed listening to this! I like the case files-like format also. I can’t wait to listen to more of Tom Merritt’s books. I received a free copy, but would have been just as happy if I had paid for it.

Loved the story, wish there was more of it!

Story was great, never quite sure where it was going next and I loved the concept. I only wish the book was a bit longer as I'd like to be in the universe longer, and see more about means/methods. No spoilers though :)

There were a couple of points where narrators seemed to talk over each-other for a second during transitions that were a bit jarring, and I went back and had to re-listen to them to catch what was being said (using the web player if this was in error). Otherwise the performance was great.

I loved the crabby patty reference :) Along with the newsletter with direct fan interaction bit (freetomnewsletter.com)

Great story with a unique delivery.

I very much enjoyed this unique take on a techno thriller. While it is primarily set in our modern time to possibly very near future it incorporates bigger ideas like the best sci-fi does. Including using the fiction to talk about current day issues on a different way.

The narrators (yes plural) did a wonderful job. But it does take a bit of getting used to. It's an audio book, not an audio play, so the text is written like a book, but with different people reading the different roles each time. I'm not sure I would like all audio boos narrated this way, but this one story was interesting to hear.
