When Violet Cruz accused U.S. Representative Alan Barclay of being “the spawn of a Martian whore” and took a shot at him, everyone agreed that she was delusional. It was just another conspiracy theory in Washington, DC, where such bizarre claims had become all too common.
Tiring of the media harassing the family, however, Cruz’s cousin brought the case to Private Investigator Rebecca Marte. She figured that the public was probably right. Rebecca was, however, willing to give the case another look as Cruz’s sudden, total break from reality without any apparent cause was almost as strange as her beliefs.
With his background in psychology, working with Sam “Doc” Price made sense to Rebecca and she welcomed him as a consultant. But soon, the two, who had worked so well in the past, found themselves at each other’s throats. She dropped him from the investigation, but with his “dog with a bone” determination, Doc went on alone.
Unfortunately, the now-divided team was going after an adversary more cunning and more ruthless than any they’ve faced before. If they’d realized the odds of their survival apart, they would have found a way to put their differences aside before it was too late.

This book is a mind bending journey through a thriller grounded in sci-fi mind control techniques that are in the development stage even now....A series of murders and attempted murders that at first glance seem to be unrelated ( all involving politicians but in different states and wounded/killed by women who have recently developed delusions ranging from aliens, Nazis, etc. ), followed by suicides by by the suspects. A single strand starts to suggest a web linking them to a possible plot that takes so many twists and turns, the reader is never bored! A truly intriguing and unusual thriller that will leave the reader doing their own research!
