Project Übermensch is a work of fiction in the science fiction, mystery, and thriller genres. It is best suited to mature adult readers owing to scenes of sex and violence as well as the use of strong language throughout. Penned by author Lonnie Busch, this engaging novel delves into the enigmatic tale of Geoffrey Cannon, a charismatic guru possessing extraordinary metaphysical abilities. Spanning from a harrowing naval experiment in 1943 to present-day encounters in the tranquil town of Kleary Creek, the narrative weaves a complex web of mystery and intrigue. As unsuspecting sailors become subjects of a military experiment gone awry, and miracles unfold in the presence of Geoffrey Cannon, questions of his true nature emerge. With a blend of science fiction and psychological thriller elements, Busch crafts a gripping narrative that explores the darker aspects of human ambition and the consequences of wielding otherworldly powers.

Author Lonnie Busch has crafted a thrilling and immersive read that plunges readers into a world where the boundaries between reality and the supernatural blur. Busch skillfully intertwines historical events with contemporary mysteries, creating a compelling tapestry of intrigue and suspense that is paced well to deliver quiet exposition and sudden, action-filled twists. The character of Geoffrey Cannon is both captivating and unsettling, his seemingly benevolent actions shrouded in ambiguity and suspicion. The narrative techniques that bring him to life showcase a flair for original dialogue and physical descriptions of action that feel wonderfully cinematic. As the story unfolds, the tension mounts, drawing readers deeper into a labyrinth of secrets and conspiracies, and the plot is held together with great logic and satisfaction for the reader. With each twist and turn, I found myself engrossed in unraveling the truth behind Geoffrey's abilities and the sinister events unfolding in the atmospherically described Kleary Creek. Overall, Project Übermensch is a riveting exploration of power, morality, and the thin line between salvation and damnation, and I would certainly recommend it.
