Conspiracy is the first novel in the Conspiracy series. A mystery/thriller with elements of science fiction, it merges fiction with facts similar to Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code. Conspiracy reveals the shadowy underside of the illusion we call reality, revolving around the discovery of an ancient shadow organization of immense power. Reviews: “wild and unexpected”; “a real page turner”; “an unforgettable experience”. Michael Cross had a troubled past. Forces set into motion long before his birth put him in conflict with the ancient, secret organization. Who began the Brotherhood? How long had they existed? A hundred years? A thousand? In that time, they had gained massive power, even infiltrating governments.  How can such an organization be destroyed? This is the task that Michael Cross faces. In his conflict with the Brotherhood he discovers a secret so overwhelming, so unimaginable that it changes his life forever.

One thing is certain–nothing is what it seems.

Conspiracy is a novel gripped by an intense, gorgeous, yet strangely refined imagination, and its experience is unforgettable. A real page turner.

I LOVE Conspiracy! It kept me on the edge of my seat with the thrilling evolution of events. I couldn’t put it down – stayed up half the night reading it, then finished it in the morning. The consciousness raising ideas were right in line with that alternate reality that everyone shrugs off as ‘conspiracy theorists’.

Conspiracy is wild and unexpected and I’m really liking it! The characters are interesting. This book begs to be a movie or a weekly TV series. I am amazed how the author carried the thread through this. I also really love the descriptions of inner spaces, the houses, all the details of the rich. The end of each chapter teased me to keep going for just one more.
