In 1970 the U.S. government launched research into psychic-weaponry. They located, engaged, and developed remote viewers - psychics who could visit enemy sites mentally. In 1995 the CIA suddenly closes the program claiming complete failure. Some believe the CIA took the program underground! Decades later brain lesions are the only forensic link in a string of murders. The CIA mysteriously arrives on the scene. Memphis Homicide Detective Wilcox knows he must find one man before the Feds! Hunter Keller is the only eyewitness to all the killings. When Wilcox teams up with Victory Petty Medical Examiner, they uncover shocking deceptions that turn the string of murders into a horrific mission that must be stopped. Does Keller hold the secrets to the murders or will a new weapon of mass destruction be unleashed on the world?
When Lindsey Fetter opened her eyes, the monster that killed her husband stood at the end of her bed. When Charlie Dunn pocketed his cellphone and stared at the empty ice on Lake Michigan, he could not believe they released from prison the monster that killed his wife and son before his eyes. When Ellen Dumont visited her parent's gravesite, it never occurred to her it would be her last moment on earth. Chicago Homicide Detective Aaron Wolfe carries decades of horrific homicides. He buries the pain so he can hunt monsters. Then it happens. Killers that beat the legal system are being taken out by snipers, and the snipers are being found with their heads crushed! Wolfe knows two evil factions are engaged in a dark war. Can he stop it, or will Wolfe succumb to his scars and let a new kind of justice into his city?
A veiled invader commandeers a U.S. nuclear missile silo in North Dakota and threatens to launch one of our Minuteman III ICBMs. To avoid nuclear war the President's only option is to contain the threat. A preventative nuclear strike launched into our Minot nuclear arsenal would neutralize the enemy threat. But it would also decimate most of the Great Plains and Central Canada killing millions. Maybe the world-renowned forensic sleuth Elliott Sumner can decipher an international blood trail and untangle the horrific web of deception. Maybe he can use his forensic skills to identify the invaders and give the POTUS more options. The clock is ticking! Can Elliott Sumner solve the grisly international puzzle in time, or is a nuclear Armageddon the only possible outcome for the unimaginable terminal breach?
