From the Author
To say the subject of UFOs is controversial would be an understatement, but that makes it all the more suitable as the topic for a novel. For decades, perhaps even centuries, people have seen these unknown craft in the sky or even underwater. There can be a sharp divide between believers and non-believers, and controversy about what it all means, especially in the context of alleged government secrecy. That tension, blended with the fundamental question, are we alone?, makes for a great storytelling opportunity.

So begins Daniel P. Douglas's debut novel, "Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project" - a book that hits the scene with a splash of intrigue and chilling delight. Aliens, cover-ups, cops, hybrids, secrets, politics and even cattle mutilation (hint.... The aliens aren't doing that one) abound in this Sci-Fi Thriller. Panning chapters to each characters view point, Douglas weaves together a tale that reads like a summer movie you would pay to see again and again - I know I was already picking out leading men and ladies to play the parts in my head!
He has a way with twisting a phrase that carries you along, giving details and imagery that help complete this impressive novel. If this is his debut, I can't wait to see what his sophomore effort will be!
Others can summarize the story. Let me just say that this reminded me of X-Files (I could often hear that opening music in my mind), but it is so much better! The author has hit a home run by combining mystery/thriller/suspense with sci-fi (something I do in my own sci-fi). The protagonist is a gimpy old PI and ex-FBI agent who falls in love with an alien hybrid (much more interesting than Mulder's love interest). The conspirators are more than stereotypes (there are some nice twists here). While fantastic, the author patches together a plausible plot that is bound to leave some people thinking. I said to myself, "It could have turned out the other way"--in other words, it could have ended in tragedy--the sign of a good mystery or thriller.
There are some editing glitches--nothing more than I see in most novels this length--but the reader will still have excellent fun with this hugely entertaining story. Kudos to the author!
Action packed with a stellar main character, author Daniel Douglas hooked me in immediately.
Former FBI agent William Harrison (in my mind I pictured him looking like Harrison Ford), was living a much more quiet life, keeping tabs on cheating husbands and wives as a private investigator.
The author does a great job painting the picture of Harrison’s now fairly mundane life – with a possible client being one whose iguana has gone missing.
When Harrison finds himself tossed head first into a mystery that uncovers a huge cover up, I think your heart will pound as hard as mine did.
Excellent read and I definitely recommend it.
William Harrison takes us along with him in this suspense packed ride. This definitely is not your average sci-fi thriller but instead a story that hums with suspense page after page after page.
The author sets the stage nicely in the beginning of the story. We gather insight on Bill - the FBI agent that he was in his glory days and the average Joe that he is now. Perhaps this isn't the life he dreamed of years ago but he gets the bills paid and goes through yet another day in a life that is no comparison to his former glory days in the FBI.
Enter Echo Tango and the Harrison finds himself up to his neck in political quagmire, Roswell, aliens and one huge cover up.
Author Daniel Douglas knows how to build a heart thumping, pulse racing read and he does it exceptionally well.
