Author Michael J. Merry takes us on an adventure to the Mato Grasso region of Brazil in his highly entertaining novel, Percy and Two Other Fools. The story revolves around the title character, Lt. Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, who disappeared in 1925 in the jungles of South America. Entrepreneurs Paul Soames and Viscount Lynn (Sid to his friends) – having recently discovered some new information regarding the lost expedition - organize a team to track down the explorers and find out what happened to them. Heading their team is John Pullen, a British jungle expert who has spent his military career surviving in the jungle and teaching others to do likewise. The team sets off on their secret mission, little suspecting that the head of the Brazilian crime syndicate has gotten wind of their trip and suspects the lure is riches hidden in the jungle.

What follows is pure adventure. Michael J. Merry concentrates on the military and logistical details of the trip, with a flair that grabs you and propels you into the action. Realism grips you every step of the way as you follow the preparations for the journey and see the 101 details that must be attended to. But rather than this being a boring litany of statistics, you find yourself immersed in what the explorers are going through. Percy and Two Other Fools is a quick read; the type of book you don't want to put down as you anticipate what's going to happen next and look forward to the latest development in this race for riches. I enjoyed this book immensely. An entertaining story in every way. I LOVED the title. A good book all around.
