Book Description

What does an unreported crime that occurred decades earlier have to do with a NYC cop? Everything!

Nothing the old scientist told him could possibly be true…or so the decorated New York Cop and former Marine tries to tell himself.

But as the evidence mounts, he faces the terrifying question -- is the Blind Veil lifting?

In a race for his life, he must decide if he is losing his mind or is the world he thought he knew merely an illusion?

The second book is due for a late release in 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars strange, surreal yet exhilarating ride May 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible." - Oscar Wilde

Lamont Simms is a New York City cop who does his job well and has a clean record to show for it. after days of having little sleep and putting up with his partner on their beat, Lamont takes his boat and goes on vacation. little did he know that this trip would forever change his life and the way he would view the world around him.
author Michael Lorde's novel crosses multiple genres. his story, which has a combination of sci-fi, police procedural, crime, mystery and thriller elements, grabbed my attention from the first chapter to the last. at each turn of the page, i never knew what was going to happen next. it was a strange, oftentimes surreal yet exhilirating ride that sustained my interest from beginning to end.
this page-turner deals with a subject matter that has been written about and even shown on the silver screen but i have never read or seen anything like it before. the fact that the author still managed to come up with something brilliant and original is really remarkable.
although the setting is contemporary, it has a classic, vintage feel to it reminiscent of the 50s and 60s which i liked.
overall, i loved this book and its premise. even if this book can stand alone, i would not mind if there were a sequel. in fact, i welcome it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeing is believing... June 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Whether the book is complimentary, part of a blog tour or paid for, this is an honest review. The following is my opinion and not a paid review.

Ever have the feeling you were outside looking in... and it totally gives you the creeps?

Lamont Simms, decorated NYC cop, former Marine and concerned citizen is moving ahead with his life. His gut instincts have served him well and soon he'll be rid of his idiot, screw-up partner... whose warped envy gets in the way of doing the job well. But, whoever said life was fair?

Raised by his uncle, a man of impeccable character, Lamont never suspected Uncle Emmett carried a dark, devastating secret... and the words uttered with his dying breath hold the key. The secret will open his eyes, and irrevocably change life as he knows it. After all... seeing is believing.

Michael Lorde's BLIND VEIL will grab you by the throat and not let go! It will shake the foundation of your beliefs in a normal world and the veil will come crashing down around your ears. A brilliant, fast paced, masterfully written thriller.

Get ready for a sleepless night...I guarantee you will not rest until you finish this book.

Thank you Michael... is there more to come?

5.0 out of 5 stars Blind Veil is captivating..... November 19, 2011
By Markham
Format:Kindle Edition
Blind Veil by Michael Lorde is really suspenseful. I literally could not put it down, and had to read it all the way through on a very cold Michigan fall night! I recommend Blind Veil to anyone who is into suspense, or psychological thrillers. I am a conspiracy nut, so the hints at conspiracies in this taut thriller really satisfied my hunger! I am very much looking forward to more from this new author!!! Blind Veil-FIVE STARS

5.0 out of 5 stars Edge of My Seat Reading! Just What I like! January 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Michael Lorde delivers the kind of story that I crave, the type that keeps me up late and wakes me up wondering what the next move is gonna be. And that's only if I haven't finished the story in one sitting. I love conspiracy theories so this book was right up my alley and I am telling everyone about it! Being that I am intrigued by the whole suspense/psychological genre, which Michael Lorde nailed, I will definitely be looking for more work by this author!! - D.L. Sparks (author, BETWEEN FRIENDS and THE LIES THAT BIND)

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Psychological Thriller! May 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Blind Veil
By Michael Lorde

Former marine and now a long time police officer Lamont Simms has just bought a boat and is spending a few days out on the ocean taking a much needed vacation. As Lamont is napping off the few beers he has consumed a shadowy figure boards the boat only to sink it and wait for Lamont's body. Fortunately Lamont escapes his imminent death and is rescued by an elderly man only to find himself the focus of a bizarre experiment.

Michael Lorde combines psychological thriller and science fiction to create a strange and intriguing novel, what if what you thought you knew was not real at all? The author did a wonderful job at leaving you guessing and in the end wanting to know more but would it be a true psychological thriller if there was a sequel; I loved the cliff hanger of this book. The scenes were exceptional and you can tell the author's police background came into play giving the scenes a much more realistic feel to them. This was a quick and fun read if you enjoy detective novels you should definitely give this one a try it is unlike any I have read before.

I was sent a free copy of this book for review.

I would rate this at 5 if it was longer. Is there a sequel coming? Because this read like an intro. I felt like he had just hit his stride when it ended.
