Book/Novel Title: The Desert of Glass
One of mankind’s greatest secrets… has been hiding in plain sight for three thousand years.Half a century ago, an aberration was spotted by one of our earliest satellites, and summarily dismissed as a hardware malfunction.But it was no aberration.And no malfunction.It was an accidental glimpse of something extraordinary, and very old.Mocked for decades, the man who designed the satellite is now dead.With the system’s original data firmly in the hands of former NTSB investigator Joe Rickards and anthropologist Angela Reed.But the data is only to be shared with one other person besides them: a seventy-five-year-old NASA engineer who was part of the original program.Joe Rickards is convinced it will lead mankind into darkness.Angela believes it may be the answer the modern world has been longing for.And former NASA engineer Leonard Townsend hasn’t the slightest idea what he’s about to get involved in.To make matters worse, through a strange bedside confession, a journalist thousands of miles away has just learned that someone else already knows about the satellite’s fifty-year-old discovery.Because they’ve been secretly using it for years.Read more
This was a fun read with a significant amount of solid science to act as it’s foundation.The many levels of human experience are depicted.Some very good and some very evil.The story moves at a feverish pace at times and keeps you transfixed.A Very satisfying read!
Another great book by Michael Grumley! Picking up where The Last Monument left off, we learn more about Rickards & Reed and dive deeper into the mystery of energy, ancient Egypt and the quantum field. Wow, what a ride – especially the edge of your seat ending! Can’t wait for the next book in the series and hoping it comes sooner than later.
Following in the footsteps of his Break Through series Mr. Grumley has written another great read. It held my interest from the first page to the last. I am patiently waiting for his next offering.Ray Little
My third book by this author. All three are amazing twists on factual science, places or both. Can’t wait for the next book.
How incredible, how exciting, and yet how terrifying. I was riveted to my chair til the book ended, and then I was ready for the sequel. Michael Grumley knows how to spin a tale and have you clamor for more.A word of advice–don’t miss his author’s notes at the end!
