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?
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.
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.
