Publisher's Description

Peter Ryan wakes up on a typical morning only to find his house empty, his wife and daughter nowhere to be found. His world is shattered after a phone call to a friend confirms the impossible: his wife and daughter died in a car accident he does not remember. Haunted by faint memories and flashes of details, Peter becomes convinced that something isn’t right and begins to question reality. When he discovers a note in his daughter’s handwriting, strange memories begin to surface that cause him to second-guess nearly everything he once believed. Suddenly armed men show up at Peter’s home, turning the mysterious puzzle of his past into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. On the run and unsure whom to trust, Peter has to discover what’s real and what isn’t . . . before he loses everything.

Editorial Reviews

In Dellosso’s (Scream) newest thriller, Peter Ryan believes himself to be a university lab researcher, but discovers he is a subject in a highly secretive government experiment to train a new breed of super-soldiers. When things go wrong, military masterminds must reel Ryan in before he exposes the abuses of the program. The story draws on the premise of The Bourne Identity, with a protagonist on a quest for the truth of his own identity. For readers of Christian fiction, the lost-identity concept parallels the main character’s wrestling with God’s identity and presence. A search for Ryan’s missing wife and young daughter runs concurrent with his quest for a seemingly hidden God, making Christian faith integral to the action-packed narrative. Dellosso, a creative writing professor, writes with punch and moves the story along briskly, but he relies on abrupt transitions too often, such as with the main character falling asleep or awakening. There’s so much waking, dreaming, “brain scrubbing,” recalling faint memories, and double-crossing that readers may be confused—though not unintentionally—until the very end.
Peter Ryan is still mourning the loss of his wife and daughter two months after they died in a tragic car accident he can’t remember. However, he senses something is not right as flashes of memory call up scenes of a different existence he doesn’t recollect. Friends chalk it up to post-traumatic stress disorder, but Peter’s faith won’t allow him to believe that his family is dead. When he finds a note from his daughter, indicating that she and her mother have been kidnapped and taken to a mysterious place called Centralia, Peter goes on the run. What he discovers forever changes how he sees himself.

VERDICT: Dellosso (Fearless) has written a tense psychological thriller with the feel of Total Recall in its story line. It’s a suspenseful ride for the reader as everyone holds a version of the truth and the only thing that can’t be taken from you is your faith in God. A solid read-alike is Ted Dekker’s Eyes Wide Open.

    Wow. So much suspense packed into one book. I had to stay up late to finish this one. I needed to find out what was real for Peter. Why doesnt he remember his past? There were so many questions to be answered, that I was on the edge of my seat watching Peter try to get those answers. (Full review at my website)

    Mike Dellosso in his new book, Centralia Book One in the Jed Patrick series published by Tyndale House Publishers gives us Things Are Not What They Seem.

    From the Back Cover: Peter Ryan wakes up on a typical morning only to find his house empty, his wife and daughter nowhere to be found. His world is shattered after a phone call to a friend confirms the impossible: his wife and daughter died in a car accident he does not remember.

    Haunted by faint memories and flashes of details, Peter becomes convinced that something isnt right and begins to question reality. When he discovers a note in his daughters handwriting, strange memories begin to surface that cause him to second-guess nearly everything he once believed. Suddenly armed men show up at Peters home, turning the mysterious puzzle of his past into a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

    On the run and unsure whom to trust, Peter has to discover whats real and what isnt . . . before he loses everything.

    Every book that Mike Dellosso writes is better than the previous one which means that Centralia is the best one so far. Nothing is what it seems so just when you, and Peter Ryan, think you have a handle on what is going onguess again. This book starts out exciting and then Mr. Dellosso just notches up the excitement factor. Centralia is a thriller with all kinds of danger that is a lot like a roller coaster with dips and turns and drops that you really dont see coming. Mike Dellosso knows how to weave a captivating story with wonderful characters that breathe. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.

    A Jeb Patrick Novel #1

    By Mike Dellosso

    He thought he knew who he was and what his life should be, but now he's not so sure. His wife and daughter are missing. Were they killed in the fiery accident as he was told, or are they alive and in trouble as his instincts lead him to believe?

    When he discovers a clue that could lead him to the truth he seeks, he finds his life suddenly in danger. Not knowing who he can trust Peter finds himself on the run. But those who are hunting him are determined to bring him down and they will use any means necessary to do it.

    With not only his life on the line but the lives and safety of his missing wife and daughter as well, Peter discovers skills he never knew he possessed. Discovering who he is may be the key he needs to survive, but he'll need to put his trust in something other than his own strength. Peter Ryan needs to rediscover his faith.

    A scrap of paper with a clue is all he has to go on - now Peter needs to learn the truth about Centralia!

    This is an incredible book that will keep you wondering who is Peter Ryan? There are layers that need to be peeled back if the truth is to be exposed. But whose version of truth is real and whose is an elaborate lie? This is a psychological thriller that will keep you turning the pages late into the night.

    I was provided a copy of this book through TBCN/BookFun in exchange for my honest review.

    This book was packed with twists and turns. I never could predict where the story was going but I was also never confused. The writing style was very easy to get into and the story was a lot of fun. A great start to a new series!

    Centralia is an excellent book. It is a true Christian suspense, thriller. The twists and turns are constant. Just when you think you know what is happening , something else occurs to throw you off. The book keeps your attention from page one until the conclusion. I look forward to reading the sequel!

    I recieved the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
