Penelope Drayton Spence made a choice years earlier and picked marriage and family over a promising career as an investigative reporter. Now, divorced and with her children spread around the country, she is having second thoughts. A mysterious call from the Managing Editor of the Washington Post offers her a second chance at big-time journalism. He has a story so sensitive that the President of the United States personally asked the Post to leave it alone.
With rumors of 30 top scientists missing and rich industrialist, Michael Walker, being held incommunicado in a prison typically used for terrorists, the story is too big to ignore. He quietly turns to the only person he knows who is good enough to crack this story, his old college friend Penelope. The moment she picks up the phone her life is turned upside down and she soon finds herself traveling cross country with the most wanted man in America looking for information about the top secret "Hermes Project".

Good in parts

The concept is a good one but seemed to be too starkly contrasted with the 'everything falls into place nicely' background lives of the characters. This was a bit disappointing and I did get bored during lengthy descriptions of the personal histories of perfect people. That aside it was an enjoyable story.

Narration will keep you awake..

Would you try another book from Rod Pennington and Jeffery A. Martin and/or C. J. Crit?

Definitely. CJ Crit has been around long enough to have her own followers ( myself included ) and the story, whilst it meanders at times, it interesting enough.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Predictable and a total let down.

What does C. J. Crit bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her unique female POV

Did The Fourth Awakening inspire you to do anything?

investigatge fourth awakenings

Any additional comments?

Not too bad. A fun romp with a mildly dissappointing finish.
