He tried to destroy her mind.
Now she must face him again—when she believed him dead.

The day after arriving home from the terrifying internment camp whose prisoners she had been sent to interview Verity is confronted, in her home, by its chief interrogator, Reid—the man who subjected her to his memory-obliterating invention the Inverse Polygraph.

But something seems to have changed in him.
In an apparent gesture of reconciliation, he offers to work with her to rid the world of an environmental menace—one which, he found out at the Camp, she abhors.

She agrees.

But lurking in her mind is a suspicion: Reid’s plan is so tempting—so perfect—that she suspects it could only have been hatched by her long-term nemesis, Stan 'Satanic' Mills, in an attempt to subject humanity to a new peril and create more fear—the fear on which he feeds...

About the Author

C.L. Spillard is a complex interplay of matter and energy in a pattern of waves whose probability cloud is densest in York, United Kingdom.

Following the profound influence, in a mysterious process not yet fully understood by science, of the NASA moon landings on the young pattern’s quantum-based self-awareness mechanisms, C.L. Spillard developed an interest in Physics and the plight of life on our small, blue spheroid.

A career in scientific research beckoned, including complex calculations of what happens to radio-waves being sent through the atmosphere by people who wish to talk to each other.

This included studying the weather – which brings us right back to the plight of life. C.L. Spillard has among other things dropped dead in Downing Street for Greenpeace, sat in a flooded tent on Solsbury Hill in an attempt to fight off a motorway, and planted more trees – sometimes under cover of darkness – than you can shake a stick at.

C.L. Spillard’s wave-pattern enjoys proximity to a second pattern originating in St Petersburg (Russia), and these two have since generated two younger ones who are now diffusing over the planet stuffing themselves with knowledge as if it were going out of fashion.
