Beyond the Sea: An Event Group Thriller

David L. Golemon. St. Martin’s/Dunne, $26.99 (336p) ISBN 978-1-250-10307-9
Humanoids with eight tentacles around their mouths and other fantastic elements overload Golemon’s 12th paranormal suspense novel featuring the Event Group, a covert American team tasked with investigating the bizarre (after 2016’s The Traveler). In 1943, William “Wild Bill” Donovan, the head of the OSS, witnesses the legendary Philadelphia Experiment, a test of the unified field theory, in the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. The test makes the USS Eldridge disappear and rematerialize soon afterward. In the process, the vessel reforms around the bodies of some of its crew, horribly trapping them in its structures. Flash forward to the present. In the North Atlantic, the USS Houston, an American submarine, encounters the Simbirsk, a Soviet battle cruiser that a German U-boat reportedly sank in 1944. Members of the Event Group investigate. Golemon doesn’t help the suspension of disbelief with clunky writing (“Jack was also smiling as he watched the excitement of his friend”). Agent: Bob Mecoy, Bob Mecoy Literary Agency. (June)
