Chris Brennan is just your average guy. Smart, but no genius. Nice, but occasionally a jerk. He's basically coasting through life trying to figure out how to balance his passion for writing with his need to eat on a daily basis. So he trades in his journalism degree for one in computer programming and moves to Germany for a job by a large hi-tech firm... Let's face it, his life is boring. But, one rainy night, in a smoky, Munich Rathskeller, he meets a beautiful young woman. As Chris is drawn further into the mystery that surrounds her, he discovers that she may be older than she appears. On top of this, the enigmatic woman he is falling in love with is a dead ringer for Maria Orsic, a mysterious psychic who lived in Germany between the First and Second World Wars. If "Ria" is an intimate of the twisted group of fanatics that brought the Nazis to power and supposedly provided them with advanced rocketry, jet propulsion, and even--some contend--flying saucers, Chris wants nothing to do with her. He leaves Germany, returns to Boston, and finds a new love. Kat is an uncomplicated American girl with no mysterious past, sinister acquaintances, or confusing chronology. In short, perfect. But events have been set in motion, and it might be too late for Chris to escape the plans of an ancient consortium set on world domination.

Ric Wasley is a writer and lecturer as well as the author of the popular McCarthy Mystery Series set in Boston in 1968. Ric has a forty-year professional career history in advertising, publishing, and marketing in Boston, New York, and San Francisco. He has degrees in history and psychology and has been trained in debating, public speaking, and stage acting. A large part of his forty-year career was spent in numerous professional and business settings as a presenter and featured speaker at seminars and professional meetings. Ric has been a visiting professor at Worcester Polytech Institute. He also teaches a popular course on marketing for authors at prominent venues such as the venerable Cape Cod Writers Conference. Of the five books in the McCarthy series, which include the first two, Shadow of Innocence and Acid Test, the most recent is The Scrimshaw, the third in the McCarthy Mystery Series, which was released in late 2009. That will be followed by Black Velvet Band, scheduled for 2016. In addition to the first two McCarthy Mysteries, Ric has also authored Midnight Blue, a quirky vampire tale that combines spectral creatures and nightwalkers with sex, drugs, and Rock & Roll; and Echoes Down a Dark Well, a paranormal thriller about reincarnation; Candle in the Wind, a twist and turn filled historical mystery; and Ric’s newest, The Girl with Faraway Eyes, a paranormal historical based on true events! Ric has also authored the semi-autobiographical novella, At my Window with a Broken Wing, and two short stories, “Embers” and “The Night.” Plus a brand new story, “Long Black Veil” that appears in the anthology Weirdly Vol. 3. Just like Mick in his McCarthy Mysteries Series, Ric thrived on music in the sixties and performed as a folksinger and in several rock bands all over New England. He played regularly in the Harvard Sq. folk music clubs in the late ’60s where he met music legends such as Bob Dylan and Joan Baez. Wasley has been involved in both print and broadcast media as well as writing for business and commercial markets for over thirty years and continues to consult for a major media company. In addition to his novels and short stories, he has been published in several literary magazines in L.A. and San Francisco while living in California. Wasley currently divides his time between traveling and his home on Cape Cod where he continues to write, lecture, and create worlds where the unexpected thrives.Review:
Fastinating and Riveting! I could not put this book down! I am not a sci-fi fan as a rule, but this book was fascinating, very well written with a sense of humor despite the peril the very likeable hero was constantly in. I highly recommend it!--Bandito
