WILMINGTON, NC, March 05, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sci fi author Daniel P. Douglas has announced the release of 'Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project'. The newly released science fiction book blends the authenticity of a Tom Clancy novel with the mystery and suspense of 'The X Files'. It is especially pertinent today, as even high-level government officials such as John Podesta are calling for disclosure and truth regarding UFOs after decades of government cover-ups.
Douglas is a multi-genre author who turns ordinary people into extraordinary heroes. Douglas creates the most unlikely of heroes and calls upon them to join extraordinary and mysterious struggles. His characters' sometimes-reluctant choices and actions put them on a collision course with destiny and reveal unimaginable truths. In every pulse pounding, edge-of-your-seat adventure, survival means confronting personal flaws and doubts, and forging unexpected fates as inspiring new champions in the eternal battle against evil.
According to Daniel, years of watching or reading anything and everything about UFOs led him to write 'Truth Insurrected: The Saint Mary Project'. His core motivation, however, was anger, and finding an outlet for it.
"Like many who follow the subject," says Daniel, "I'm routinely frustrated by the response of government to UFOs, especially in not admitting what they know, and I'm not just talking about well-known cases like Roswell. There are thousands of UFO cases to talk about, past and present."
Daniel adds that he was not surprised when outgoing advisor to President Obama, John Podesta, recently tweeted his regret that he could not get the government to release its UFO files.
"The stonewalling is policy and has been for decades. It is frustrating and damages the public trust. And if a former Chief of Staff and Presidential advisor can't succeed in gaining disclosure, I have to wonder where it leaves individual citizens who seek the truth. I also wonder why more people aren't outraged and vocal about this failure of government accountability."
In the storyline of the new science fiction thriller, when former FBI agent William Harrison begins receiving mysterious postcards with the signature "Echo Tango," he's alerted to a deadly government cover-up beyond anything he ever thought possible. His informant turns out to be a guilt-ridden ex-operative in the Saint Mary Project, an ultra-secret program engaged in alien contact. The organization is wiping out loose ends, and Echo Tango thinks Harrison is the man he needs to stop the decades-old conspiracy.
Thanks to a gunshot wound suffered in an attempt to thwart an armed robbery, the crime-fighting life is something of Harrison's past. He keeps his shooting skills sharp but walks with a limp, and he is more likely to catch marital cheaters than anything else--as a private investigator. But Harrison can't shake the feeling that this paranormal case is meant for him. He enlists the help of colleagues and starts following the mysterious clues.
"In this science fiction novel," Douglas concluded, "I tried to build it on a range of UFO lore and keep it true to that lore so followers of the subject would see their interests, knowledge, and beliefs reflected - and respected - in the book."
Critics have praised 'Truth Insurrected'. Kirkus Reviews stated, "...its sprinkling of fantastical elements makes it a standout..." Blue Ink Review said, "...Conspiracy theorists and science fiction fans alike will find Truth Insurrected hard to put down." BestThrillers.com called it "An engrossing, deftly-crafted UFO conspiracy thriller that is easily one of the most successful tales to emerge out of Roswell alien lore." The Columbia Review of Books & Film said, "An excellent science-fiction/conspiracy thriller...Highly recommended."
