Editorial Reviews

Uri Geller
...superbly-crafted novel of international confrontation, where atomic arsenals count for nothing in a power struggle of a different kind.
E. L. Noel
A thriller with an international flavor, where the innocent are hunted, the knowledgeable hurt, and the guilty are extraordinarily powerful.
Gary Pullman
One of the best books I've read in a long time. This excellent novel is so suspenseful that the reader won't be able to put it down once he or she opens its cover and becomes immersed in its thrilling world. Mills has done an outstanding job in every respect. The plot is a roller coaster! The characters are fully developed, believable, and interesting, and there is a well-considered back story to the plot as a whole...
Joy Spear
..an incredible read! The plot takes several spins through fast paced action and drama. It poses the questions of was this the unknown power of the Incas and other past civilizations like them? And, if we had these immense powers now, would mankind self destruct?

Meet the Author

Born of poor parents following the Depression, Gerry spent most of his first sixteen years studying the piano, reading everything in print, and winning oratorical contests. His promising career as a concert pianist came to an end when he entered Northeastern University. In return for his promise never to return there, he was handed a degree in electrical engineering. He misread that as encouragement and began a career in avionics engineering. Married, with three children, he switched to sales, but divorce unfortunately followed. He met and married Lori, continued in sales, then opened his own business, selling it ten years later.

The high-speed automation and robotics industry kept him occupied until 1990, when he took a brief sabbatical with Lori, his bride of twenty-eight years by then. They set out on a 45 foot ocean sailing yacht, managing to terrorize most of the Canadian Maritimes and the eastern seaboard for over a year before ending up in the Bahamas, where fortunes ran out. Not one to fret, he immediately wrote his first novel, typing furiously to see how the story ended, while Lori plotted a course for Florida.

He returned to industry, and has worked since in automation and robotics. Presently he is a Principal Engineer for a neurological equipment company in Florida.

Shying away from the purely technical, he enjoys writing character-driven stories dealing with human shortcomings, a topic in which he has a great degree of personal expertise. His hobbies are architectural design, reading and occasionally the piano. He no longer sails, and the world is a safer place for it.

There are those who believe he should give up writing for the same reason, but so far no one has come forward with an acceptable bribe.
