What would you do if you woke up one morning and realized that your world was not what you thought it was?  How would you feel if you found out that your memories were untrustworthy?  In Mike Dellosso’s Centralia, Peter Ryan can’t find out where his wife and daughter are, and he is told that they died in a car accident two months prior; however, Peter finds a hidden note from his eight-year-old daughter that says she and her mother went to Centralia.  Memories start to surface, and before he knows it, Peter Ryan finds himself the target of sinister agents of a secret government organization.  He fights for his life and starts to discover that his life is not what it seems as he pursues the truth and his family while being pursued by ruthless men who want to keep him from discovering who he really is.
Mike Dellosso has written an action-packed thriller that once gets moving, continues non-stop as the mystery and memories of the main character’s identity unfolds.  The nuances and details of the characters are well written and create situation that keep readers engaged and on the edge of their seats as each scene reveals more questions than answers to drive the story.  It is easy to like the protagonist and hate the antagonists who pursue him.  The way the story plays out is brilliant, and the key to the main character finding answers into his past and identity is rooted deeply in his heart and mind that could not be wiped away through any brainwashing or mental reprogramming that he had been subjected to.  Readers will be happy to know that the story resolves happily, yet it leaves room for more action and adventure to follow. 
If you like stories that involve mystery, action, mayhem, and resolution for the protagonist, you will enjoy Centralia.
A sequel to this thriller is coming summer 2016!
My rating is 5.
