Advance Praise for Child Finder

VERDICT:
This compelling debut novel, the first in a trilogy, features a memorable protagonist who is a combination of devoted father and mystic.
For fans of supernatural thrillers and those who enjoy the TV show Medium, this is a real find.
The author is a retired U.S. Air Force agent whose real-life experiences inspired this novel.
[Coming in 2010 are the second and third novels in the trilogy, Child Finder: Resurrection and Child Finder: Revelation. Ed.]
--Library Journal 6/1/2009

Slick....Mike has done a terrific job of transitioning from running counterintelligence operations and writing reports to creative fiction....his passion for writing coupled with years of experience in law enforcement has produced a wonderful read for mystery enthusiasts!
--Dick Law, Colonel, USAF (Retired),
Managing Editor, Global Alliance Magazine
Former Vice Commander, OSI

Child Finder is a gripping, intriguing, rare and accurate look into the U.S. Intelligence Community. Angley uses his long government career to weave a believable fiction tale that is as current as today s news.
--Gerald E. Pratt,
Operations Officer, National Security Agency (Retired)

Mike has created a page turner I didn't want to put down with a plot twist I never saw coming! Angley s imagination combined with his in-depth knowledge of the OSI, Interagency, and military working environments quickly and realistically took me back to my time at the Pentagon in the Fall of 2001. Can t wait for the next books in the series to see what exploits are in store for USAF OSI Agent Patrick O'Donnell and his extraordinary gift!
--Jack Holt

Action Officer, Joint Staff USAF (Retired)

I loved this book! This is a book for anyone who loves political suspense, secret government agencies, and uniquely gifted heroes! A former Military Intelligence Officer, the author s background adds credibility to this fascinating look into covert operations. But just because he knows what he is talking about does not mean he can tell a good story or especially write one! Luckily for those of us who love secret undercover organizations, paranormal stories, and great intriguing suspense filled tales, Mike Angley has it all together. I can t wait to read the next two books in the series!

About the Author

Colonel Michael Mike Angley, USAF (ret) enjoyed a rewarding 25-year career as a Special Agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI). He is a seasoned criminal investigator and a counterintelligence and counterterrorism specialist. He received extensive training in Undercover Operations and Informant Management, and early in his career performed undercover work for the Air Force. Mike explains how this background has shaped his writing:

Child Finder gets its inspiration from my life s experiences. In particular, every single crime I investigated involving child victims literally broke my heart. The Child Finder Trilogy in some respects has given me an outlet to express that emotion, while weaving a few intriguing suspense tales along the way!

This is the first book that I have paid more than $5 for and I don't regret it. The story is very interesting! I read all three titles in this trilogy in 2 days. I couldn't put them down. They are great books with mystery, a little of the paranormal, and action. I don't think anyone who buys them would be disappointed.

Great book!!! Like most people said, "I couldn't put it down, when I started reading it." It was a very good book and I'm glad to see, that there are more from Mike. I first met him, when I was working at Borders (Chapel Hills) and he was in to sign his books for those who purchased them. Well, I bought one, he signed it and we took a picture together (with me in my cafe uniform). Anyway, very nice guy and great writer. Hope to see him again at another book signing!

Mike Angley used his experience as a Special Agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (OSI) to create a suspenseful page-turner in Child Finder. Being a criminal investigator, as well as a counterintelligence and counterterrorism specialist, gave him plenty of opportunities to put together characters that keep us guessing as we read. The intriguing aspect, to me, is just how the paranormal adventures came to be part of the plot. What do you believe about people having psychic abilities that could help in investigations?

In Child Finder, the main character, Major Patrick O'Donnell, is also an Air Force Special Agent who is assigned to the Pentagon. He discovers that he has a psychic gift that the government then wants to put to use, first to help find abducted children, but then they take it further, and Major O'Donnell discovers another side of the FBI, as he becomes part of a TOP SECRET black world.

Be sure to carve out a chunk of time when you pick up Child Finder because you are not going to want to put the book down. The characters pull you into the story and the mystery keeps you guessing right up to the very end. We all have experiences in our lives but how many of us can turn them into a fantastic read? Mike Angley has done just that. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to see into the "intelligence world" and anyone that loves a great mystery thriller. The good news is...there are two more books to finish out the series and I can't wait to get my hands on them. Mike Angley is a terrific writer and you'll find Child Finder a very well-written mystery.

Mr. Angley's debut novel, "Child Finder," is a compelling read, filled with courageous, believable characters. Pat, the lead character, is an agent found to have the gift of clairvoyance. As he learns more about his ability, he is able to use it to the benefit of those in peril. However, as he reaches out to others, others reach back at him for use of his unique abilities for larger, more dangerous tasks. Mr. Angley points out that in the powerful character Pat, the same people affecting his life the most are the same people affecting us in our own lives, namely family and co-workers. As the story continues, not all is that it seems as the characters unfold into their own agendas, making it a page-turner as it reaches its dramatic end. Congratulations to Mr. Angley, and I look forward to reading the rest of this great series!

Child Finder is the first book of a new suspense thriller series featuring Air Force Special Agent Patrick O'Donnell.

Patrick discovers he has a psychic gift as he begins to experience very vivid and sensory detailed dreams about children that are missing. Not wanting to risk his military career he approaches a trusted former commander who is rumored to run a Top Secret program that includes anything in the paranormal realm. Patrick is quickly pulled into the program and proves he can locate these missing children under the right conditions. But Patrick is worried about how the program is affecting his family life and he is also very concerned about some of the government's methods to ensure this program remains a secret. Murderers are being caught-but are innocent people's rights also being violated?

I loved this book! A former Military Intelligence Officer, the author's background adds credibility to this fascinating look into covert operations. But just because he knows what he is talking about doesn't mean he can tell a good story or especially write one! Luckily for those of us who love secret undercover organizations, paranormal stories, and great intriguing suspense filled tales, Mike Angley has it all together.

Patrick is a remarkable character, honorable, moral, patriotic, and a devoted Catholic. It does not matter what your religious beliefs are, Patrick's conflict between his religious beliefs and his psychic gift makes for a fascinating contrast. You'll but love the character of this dedicated and truly caring man. I would not say this is a "Christian book" as that puts limitations on it that are not really valid.
