f haven't absorbed enough absurd conspiracy theories on social media or the evening news, you might want to take in George Noory's
, a thriller which explores them all, from UFOs and alien abductions to secret cabals.
ate night talk show host Greg Nowell ends up on the run from authorities, who believe he's in possession of ultra secret files, stolen by a super hacker who died soon afterwards (Nowell is also accused of his murder). And the supervillain on his trail is very disturbed - and totally disturbing. Criminally insane Leon's brain has been biohacked - others control his urge to kill!
f course, our hero is not in flight alone. At his side is the gorgeous (and mysterious) Alyssa Neal, who claims to be drowning in the same quagmire as he is. Both readers and Nowell doubt that this femme fatale can be trusted. A trail of gory murders follows the duo closely as they try to find out more about the God Project and subliminal control of humanity via social media.
is fast-paced fodder for the paranoid reader - and an intriguing tale even for the non-paranoid.
