Hi All My Readers!
Tonight's first review is Eternity Falls! I love Sci-Fi, in movies, books, or with my friends making up stories. This book was excellent. Very move script worthy even! I had not read what is called a "cyberthriller" before to my knowledge, but I enjoyed this book greatly! This book is action, adventure and mystery all in a futuristic setting.
The story opens with a detective who has been hired to find out, or um... maybe not exactly find out, why a recipient of the "Miracle Treatment" has died. What is odd about that, well this treatment was suppose to make her practically immortal, but yet this body appears to have died of "natural causes" which is passe in the world at this time. What Detective Rick Macey is going to have to find out, among many other things, is there is at least one person killing in the name of God. It is always so hard to know who is really who they say they are! Do you ever really know someone totally?
But even if you did, that doesn't give you the right to play God with their lives, or even judge them, but how do you know those rights from wrongs? This case will cause Rick Macey to fall in love with someone he hadn't planned on loving. Can he make it out of this alive, save the people he cares about, live through the truth while keeping his faith, all while dealing with Cyborgs, car wrecks, and fights on the roof?
I am not telling you the ending, but I am going to recommend if you like Sci-Fi at all, if you follow along with anything Sci-Fi, or Mystery and Adventure you will want to check this book out. I feel sure you will not miss the message either. After all... who will hold your soul when Eternity Falls?

Kirk Outerbridge developed a passion for storytelling at an early age. Through years of reading Fantasy and Science Fiction novels, comics, table top gaming and watching endless hours Japanese anime, he developed a keen sense for what made stories enjoyable and more importantly—what didn’t.
While pursuing an engineering degree in college, Kirk endeavored to tell his own stories, choosing writing as the easiest and cheapest medium to master—or so he thought. Several years and several hundred thousand words later, he produced a Sci-fi trilogy that shall never (God willing) see the light of day, but that did teach him much needed lessons about the craft of writing fiction.
After college Kirk returned to his homeland of Bermuda where he reunited with his childhood friend and future wife, Ria. But before marrying his lovely wife, Kirk entered an even greater marriage and devoted his life to Christ in 2002.
With a new found direction in life, writing fell by the wayside but the urge to tell futuristic stories never left. After much prayer and contemplation, Kirk purposed his writing for God’s Will, seeking to draw to Christ those who shared his passions for all things futuristic and Sci-fi.
Kirk currently lives with his wife Ria and 18 month old son Miles in beautiful Bermuda. He is a faithful member of the Church of Christ and is a professional engineer employed by the government.ABOUT THE BOOK
In the future, death is only a problem if you can’t afford the price. Such is the promise of Gentec Corporation’s “Miracle Treatment”, a genetic anti-aging elixir that grants eternal life—or does it?
When a Gentec client suddenly dies of natural causes, the powers that be will stop at nothing to ensure their version of eternity remains unchallenged; even if it means concocting a religious sabotage conspiracy to cover a lie.
With the media about to blow the story wide open, the credibility of Gentec and the lives of millions of clients rest on one man’s ability to uncover the truth. Enter detective Rick Macey, religious counterterrorist expert and Gentec executive Sheila Dunn’s last hope for salvation.
Now with the clock ticking and the corporate brass seeking their own solution at any cost, Macey must track down a religious zealot out to destroy the Miracle Treatment for good.
But when Macey finds himself not only falling for his client, but confronted with the possibility that the culprit could hold a connection to his shaded past, the truth suddenly becomes a dangerous thing.
Only through a test of faith can he stop the crisis before it’s all too late and eternity falls.
