In 2007 America's darkest agency, known to only a privileged few as the Event Group, has been tasked by the president to bring home a famous former astronaut who was on a mission to bring back the greatest biblical artifact - Noah's Ark. It will be up to the newly installed director of security at Department 5656, Major Jack Collins, and his team of brilliant men and women to rescue the archeological expedition from forces that will kill to keep the mysterious artifacts inside the territorial borders of Turkey.

A Perfect Prequel for the Event Group
This was another excellent installment to the Event Group. The story explores the origins of the Group, and what was essentially the founding mission. I wasn't sure that I'd enjoy it, as it introduces a whole new cast of characters from an earlier time. But it didn't take long until I was hooked.
The characters were fascinating, once I could keep them straight as to who was who. And an interesting aside was a really interesting look into the feelings of the various people following the American Civil War. The story offered a view into that situation that I really didn't expect.
Although the story didn't tie up as neatly as I'd expected, it still was a satisfying tale, with all of Golemon's trademark spookiness, character development, and plausibility.
As for Richard Poe? He is the Event Group. I can't imagine listening to an Event Group book without him as the narrator. His in-imitable style defines the group, and added one more satisfying element to the story.

David Golemon Did It Again
The Mountain was a great reading experience. I could not stop listening to the story nor put the book down! David Golemon's Event Group Series are some of best book to read. The Mountain Pre-qual brings a new direction for the reader and opens new story lines and characters to enjoy.
