Not killing her might be the death of him
Something stinks and Agency black-ops assassin Michael Valiant is determined to sniff out what it is. He’s never questioned orders before, but then, targets never seemed so innocent before. Why silence a group of UFO enthusiasts who look less like terrorists than they do housewives and nerds? Unfortunately, Michael’s curiosity might destroy everything he holds dear.
Psychic medium Carolyn Fairchild only wants a quiet, mundane life with her husband and daughter, but she has something the Agency covets: her abilities. When the UFO group Carolyn belongs to threatens to expose a government-alien conspiracy, the Agency will stop at nothing to silence them. With deaths and disappearances dogging her, Carolyn has nowhere to turn. And then Michael Valiant comes calling.
One killer. One innocent. Together, a formidable weapon that could destroy the world or redeem it. But can they survive long enough to do either?
An exciting, fast-paced thrill ride, The Experiencers will leave you breathless.
To ensure her daughter’s safety, Carolyn Fairchild has surrendered to the Agency and the aliens who repeatedly abduct her.
Determined to sever the aliens’ hold on Carolyn and the other abductees, Michael Valiant, Agency assassin, has gone rogue. He’s made his way to the Northwest Territories to find the alien base in The Valley of the Headless Men.
But time is running out. The aliens have almost completed their experiments, and when they do, the captive abductees will be executed.
While Carolyn chooses between betraying Michael and protecting her daughter, Michael finds himself pursued by a vengeful ex-partner with whom he once almost had an affair.
Unaware they are repeating a pattern enacted over many lifetimes, Michael and Carolyn must break the cycle or continue enacting it in lifetimes to come.
***A Ring of Truth can be read as a stand-alone novel though it continues Michael and Carolyn's story from The Experiencers.***
