Overview

The Archangel Project by C.S. Graham

A murdered psychologist with ties to a secret CIA-funded remote viewing project . . .

A haunted young Iraq War vet with a "psycho" discharge and a talent that has marked her for death . . .

A deadly secret that will rock the world.

You can't hide the truth from those who can see.

When the charred remains of Tulane professor Henry Youngblood are discovered in the burned-out ruins of his New Orleans offices, the CIA sends maverick troubleshooter Jax Alexander to investigate. Joined in a reluctant partnership with remote viewer October "Tobie" Guinness, Jax struggles to decipher a cryptic set of clues that leads from the devastated neighborhoods of New Orleans to the power corridors of Washington, D.C. Pursued by agents of an influential oil and defense conglomerate with ties to the President himself, Jax and Tobie soon find themselves in a breakneck race against time to stop a ruthless killer and avert a diabolical plot that could devastate America.

October, "Tobie" Guiness, possesses a special gift. She can "see" people, places, things or events that are miles away using only her mind. Remote viewing is a discipline that few people know about or understand. It has been investigated by the military for covert operation purposes but not pursued due to inaccuracy incurred in the viewing. Tobie however has an accuracy rating of 80%, which puts her in the top tier of remote viewers. Her gift was being used in research by Professor Youngblood at Tulane University. The professor was seeking funding for this research through some organizations that have a rather shady background. The professor ends up dead; the object of an obvious murder. His death attracts the attention of the CIA. Enter CIA renegade, Jax Alexander to investigate the crime. Through his investigation, Jax learns of Professor Youngblood's research and his work with Tobie Guiness. Tobie doesn't need her special gift to soon realize that her own life is in danger. She is limited as to who she can turn to for help. Anyone she comes into contact with is put in danger. She eventually puts her trust in Jax. Together the two of them begin to unravel a plot that has the potential to bring another war to the Middle East. This storyline has a lot going to keep the reader interested. The concept of remote viewing is unique and intriguing. The plot is suspenseful and the characters of Tobie and Jax are well done. The city of New Orleans just naturally offers a backdrop for an atmosphere of mystery and intrigue. The action takes Tobie and Jax from New Orleans to Dallas to Washington D.C. in their race against time to stop a world altering event from happening. Storylines of this book genre are often politically driven. This book is no different. However, instead of politics being the driving force behind this story, the story is used as a vehicle to convey political opinions. Often the action is detoured so characters could expound on everything from the war in Iraq to the nation's tax code to the government's aide and response to Katrina victims. These soliloquies become a distraction. This could have been a real page turner. But to paraphrase Elvis, I think the book would have been much better with "A little more action and a little less "political" conversation.

Iraq War veteran October 'Tobie' Guinness feels her skill as a remote viewer is a mixed bag. The former Navy vet can see who is doing what miles and miles and miles away but she cannot bring into lucid focus completely the flashes she ¿witnesses¿. --- However, though she considers herself an underachiever compared with her spouses, Tobie keeps on trying to clear her vision so as to make better use of it. Her latest effort frightens her as she sees flashes of Eisenhower¿s worst nightmare in action. A cartel of VIPs from the defense industry and the government plan a 9/11 style attack by ¿Iranians¿ on New Orleans in order to obtain public support for an Iraq type intervention. Those she witnessed plotting know of her and her mentor. They kill the psychologist-professor teaching her and go after Tobie. CIA Agent Jax Alexander investigates the professor¿s murder in New Orleans only to crash head first into the conspiracy and Tobie. They are on the run together while trying to prevent another avaricious Middle East war. --- This is a terrific conspiracy thriller starring a wonderful hero who received the ¿psycho¿ honorable discharge from the Navy and a cynical CIA agent on the brink of being fired even before he foolishly becomes involved in the Iran War scam. Fans who appreciate a fast-paced tale with obvious Iraq implications will want to read Team Graham¿s entertaining conspiracy novel. --- Harriet Klausner
