What if your subconscious held the world together but you didn’t know why? What if it held the world together by breaking it apart? And if you couldn’t figure out your subconscious in time, nations would fall to pieces. 

In Glossolalia: Psychological Suspense, Nancy discovers a crime of poison in progress at her uncle’s pesticide company where she works. It’s the only job she can keep, considering her habit of waking up out of amnesic fugues, wondering what strange adventures she’s been having. Besides, her uncle is nice to her, giving her illicit street drugs called Jolly Wests for free, which keep her from having bewildering visions that seem almost like memories of someone else, though that’s impossible.

But will she protect her uncle as he’s protected her all her life and help him cover up his ecological crime? No! Even if it means she’ll lose her job and the Jollys. But first she has to get over addiction, which means being overwhelmed by images of a mean pastor spouting an Elizabethan magical spy code, an idealistic foreign NFL football player, a terrifyingly ambiguous flamingo, and steamier sex than she’s ever imagined. Can she become her authentic self, and if she does, will everyone run away?

This novel is the first in The Agents of the Nevermind suspense series, which involves disinformation schemes and sneaky cultural orchestration by secret agents trained in hypnosis and advanced psychological manipulation, given license by the media to create for the public whatever version of reality they want to further the US power-agenda. While spy thriller type books of the past somewhat simplistically placed intelligence agents in the role of saviors and protectors of all that is good, readers are becoming more capable of increasing complexity regarding the CIA, NSA, FBI and other agencies. The success of books by Barry Eisler, for example, show the trend toward more realistic portrayal of foreign policy is wildly welcomed. Though I’m thankful for readers educated on the subject, the books provide historical and current information as well.

Buy ‘Glossolalia’ either as a paperback or as an e-book!
