Glossolalia: Psychological Suspense
Readers Favorite Award Gold Medal Winner
No one but her uncle Geoff would hire Nancy, considering her habit of snapping out of amnesiac fugues, wondering where she got her bruises and the scent of men's cologne. When she sees a crime of poison in progress at his pesticide company, she chases the truck carrying away the chemical deemed too toxic to use or to dump. Her pursuit leads to a world of political intrigue, esoteric rituals, an arcane Elizabethan spy code, and assassinations she never imagined - though her imagination is what holds that world together. Through a fictionalized intelligence agency, the book dramatizes the shady side of covert experiments, creating destabilizing coups for profit, media theater, psychological warfare, and illicit methods of funding dark ops.
