Silent Invasion
by Chris Shockowitz View author's profile page

Overview


Reporter Amber van Hosteen and CIA agent Jeff Smith discover atrocities against humanity that appear to be only a test run for what is to come. It’s an alien plot on an unimaginable scale, decades in the making, and if they don’t stop it, within months, a new holocaust will be unleashed upon all of humanity—the Silent Invasion.

This book began with a dream after weeks of trying to understand why two tribes in Rwanda that lived in harmony for hundreds of years, quickly turned to genocide. When I awoke from this dream, I realized that no alien race need risk their own lives and resources invading Earth while we are still so willing to kill each other. I hope you enjoy the story.

Description


Amber van Hosteen is working at her dream job at News Corp in New York City. That is, it’s a dream until she discovers large corporations are corrupting governments around the world, sponsoring questionable projects, and building huge factories in lawless places for an unknown purpose. Determined to learn who is behind these crimes, Amber follows a trail of clues to a remote village in North Africa.

Jeff Smith is a senior CIA agent. When his team discovers a material that cannot be made on Earth, and his director does not want to believe him. Jeff is reassigned to follow Amber to Africa, little suspecting it will lead him to the answers about the mysterious material.

Amber and Jeff have met before. He once tried to stop her from getting a story, so when he comes to her rescue in a dire situation, she is less than grateful. Soon, however, they find themselves forming a fragile alliance. When they discover an unimaginable nightmare, they quickly realize they can trust no one except each other. Soon, Jeff and Amber are being chased around the world by members of the Hidden Hand, a secret society with influence at the highest levels across many governments.

What Amber and Jeff have discovered will change the world forever if they don’t put a stop to it. But who will believe them, and will they even live to tell the tale?
