This edgy novel for men and women takes place in present time, taking the reader through the darkest places and into the sunshine that casts its light on the nation's dubious foreign policy carried out by intelligence agencies in collusion with surprising collaborators such as globe-trotting evangelists, drug dealers, money launderers, movie producers, and assassins.
The Reality Behind the Fiction
In the Agents of the Nevermind series, the world is much like our own except for the way things veered off in the late '80s with the Occult Revival in the age of the giants. The Nevermind became a new organization that took over hypnotic manipulation of the psyche and theatrical propaganda from the CIA in conjunction with the Tavistock Institute and all their fronts and liasons.
Read about how this came about in the prequel, Giant Jack. Stay tuned for the that last book in the series by reading the newsletter.
In spite of the Alternate Reality elements, which are meant to entertainingly reflect our world from a skewed perspective, everything in Glossolalia: Psychological Suspense, could happen.

In the books in the series, the people find ways to take back some of their power in the ongoing encounter with The Nevermind.
