On August 15th, 1939, an English passenger plane from British Airways Ltd. crashed in Danish waters between the towns of Nykøbing Falster and Vordingborg. There were five casualties reported and one survivor. Just two weeks before, Hitler invaded Poland. With the world at the brink of war, the manner in which this incident was investigated left much open to doubt. The jurisdiction battle between the two towns and the newly formed Danish secret police created an atmosphere of intrigue and distrust. The Bridge of Deaths is a love story and a mystery. Fictional characters travel through the world of past life regressions and information acquired from psychics as well as archives and historical sources to solve "one of those mysteries that never get solved." Based on true events and real people, The Bridge of Deaths is the culmination of 18 years of sifting through conventional and unconventional sources in Denmark, England, Mexico and the United States. The story finds a way to help the reader feel that s/he is also sifting through data and forming their own conclusions. Cross The Bridge of Deaths into 1939, and dive into cold Danish waters to uncover the secrets of the G-AESY .
Compelling read, February 19, 2013 By diebus - See all my reviewsThis review is from: The Bridge of Deaths (Paperback) "The Bridge of Deaths" by M.C.V. Egan was recommended to me by several of my reviewer friends who just earned themselves more credibility. This well written and compelling story is based on a true event, the crash of a British Airways Plane at a Danish bridge in 1939. A couple in Britain and a woman in Florida are trying to reconstruct the events and the lives of the people who were killed through various channels of research; some of it factual, some psychic. It is fascinating how the story unfolds, like a regular detective story, but the use of transgression to past lives and the use of information derived from psychics adds a special touch to it. Whether you - like myself - are open to the concept of transgression or not, the result is the same: a carefully composed and thrilling read that combines historical facts with suspense and entertainment.

I was honestly slightly confused as I started this book as to whether it was fiction or non-fiction. Once I realized it was both I was pleasantly intrigued. What a clever concept. The authors' grandfather did not survive a plane crash in 1939 in Denmark. He was a very young man only in his 30's. The crash occurred the night before the start of WWII. Six people were on that plane. There were two Standard Oil employees from New Jersey, A German lawyer, a member, of Parliament, an airline employee and the pilot. The pilot was the only survivor. Active imaginations like mine, or any conspiracy theorists could easily peg any one of those passengers as an espionage pawn. I am in awe of the authors twenty -year- quest to unravel the mystery surrounding her grandfathers' death. Was it an accident or was it an act of espionage? Her research left not one stone unturned on any continent or in the world of afterlife. The world of past life regression is fascinating. Bill, one of the main characters does not smoke but after being hypnotized, he becomes a smoker because he was a smoker in his past life. I found this interesting because I quit smoking three years ago but still smoke in my dreams. Her passion for this project is evident on every page and in her detailed footnotes. Personally, I love history and every detail was impeccable but at the same time, I found the footnotes a bit distracting. I would have preferred them at the end of the book or in the center for easy reference. All I will say about the ending is Bravo. This book has everything, fiction, non-fiction, mystery; romance, past lives, psychics and history. As overwhelming as that sounds and it should be, the author does a brilliant job of tying it together rather nicely. If you are looking for something different, maybe burnt out on vampires give this book a try I think you will enjoy its uniqueness.
