Soul Intent by Dennis Batchelder,
ISBN-10: 0979805627, NetLeaves Publishing - also on Kindle; review by ellen george


I am a tremendous fan of Dennis Batchelder. His first book, Soul Identity, introduced us to Scott Waverly, a wise cracking security expert who was contacted by Soul Identity, an organization that literally you can take it with you.

Once again Scott Waverly is tapped by Soul Identity's Archibald Morgan because it seems there has been a breach in Soul Identity's security - An infamous historical figure's stocked away treasure has disappeared and it's up to Scott and company to find out what happened.

Dennis Batchelder not only has taken his amazing idea, but taken us back in time through journals and features characters we know and love from Identity.

Nazi General Hermann Goering asks Soul Identity to stockpile his 'loot' - 'treasure' from the dead, and lost items he wants to bank for his next life. A low man on the totem pole, Archibald Morgan has been tapped to finalize plans for Goering to take advantage of Soul Identity. While repugnant, Soul Identity cannot descriminate between good and bad guys, but he must fulfill the duty of his job.

Another character from Identity, Madame Flora, was an operative of Identity's and reluctantly helps Morgan. While Flora and Morgan are attracted to each other, in this case, they are diametrically opposed to proceeding with this project.

Told in flashbacks through Madame Flora's journals in code, Batchelder colors the characters we know and love and makes them more rounded.

There is synchronicity in this book that is so brilliant to explain would be the biggest spoiler anyone would dare write. Suffice it to say, if you buy into the Soul Identity concept, what happens in the quest to find the treasure will blow you away.

While I understand why Dennis Batchelder ended Intent as he did, I have mixed emotions.
But I DO know Batchelder's genius to put it all together and continue the Soul Identity saga with more (how can there be more?) excitement and adventure.

Soul Intent is a beautifully written book that continues an exciting concept.

An excellent read!
