Whistling in the Dark

Part of the Boundary Solution series:
  • Whistling in the Dark

Time can be an ally or an enemy.

Concerned that an invasion of the Black-eyed Children is imminent, but unable to convince their boss—the irascible Harlan “Duke” Rendell—that the threat is real, Boundary agents Kerri Elias and Aaron Vincent decide to strike out on their own. Teaming up with a young doctor from southern Louisiana, Will Daigle, on a cross-country trip on the advice of their mysterious Pleiadian mentor Saul, they head for a small town in upstate New York. What their ultimate goal is, Saul can’t—or won’t—say. He tells them only that time is short, and they’ll know what to do when they get there.

The Black-eyed Children are not the only threat they will encounter along the way, though. The crisis humanity now faces brings out our species’ best and worst, and more than once they’ll have to confront dangers of a purely terrestrial origin. And while Saul has reassured Kerri that she is the key to stopping the invasion, there is no guarantee that she, Aaron, and Will will survive what looks increasingly like a suicide mission. Is Saul acting in their interests, or in the interest of humanity as a whole? Or is he engaged in his own personal game, moving the three of them around like pawns on a chessboard, with ends in mind having nothing to do with protecting the people of the Earth? Only time will tell... if they’re still alive to find out, that is.

About the Author

Gordon Bonnet has been writing fiction for decades. Encouraged when his story Crazy Bird Bends His Beak won critical acclaim in Mrs. Moore’s 1st-grade class at Central Elementary School in St. Albans, West Virginia, he embarked on a long love affair with the written word. His interest in the paranormal goes back almost that far, although it has always been tempered by Gordon’s scientific training. This has led to a strange duality; his work as a skeptic and debunker on the popular blog Skeptophilia, while simultaneously writing paranormal and speculative novels, novellas, and short stories. He blogs daily, but is never without a piece of fiction in progress-driven to continue, as he puts it, “because I want to find out how the story ends.” Stay up to date with Gordon and all his writing and appearances on Facebook, Twitter, or at www.gordonbonnet.com. You’ll also find more great fiction on his writing blog, Tales of Whoa.
