In Brainstorm, Gold Rush seems to be just another sleepy little Colorado community full of friendly, caring citizens, quaint cottages, and a sort of quiet peace, held gently by the picturesque mountains that surround it. However, something isn’t right in Gold Rush, and early on a Monday morning Robert Weller awakens with a cautioning and insuppressible voice inside his head. He soon finds a secret behind every door, a motive with every glance, and a lie beneath every spoken word.After meeting a strange but beautiful woman named Sunny who insists they were once lovers, people begin dropping dead around him and his world twists upside down as paramilitary teams hunt him, and his own wife and friends turn against him. Weller is thrown into the middle of a military mission to rescue thousands of the town’s citizens from a plot to destroy the Free World.Time is running out: Weller, Sunny and thousands of innocent citizens are facing nuclear devastation. Major “Jax” Jackson and a U.S. Air Force Para Rescue team are their only hope—but how can Jax and his PJs save them all, armed only with nonlethal weapons?
“…as exciting and fast-paced as a thrill ride on a dive bomber, a maelstrom of action, violence, murder and mayhem, way too much fun to put down…based on an actual black CIA program known as ‘Project Stargate. Kessler…really knows his stuff. An outstanding novel.”— Douglas Preston, bestselling author of The Codex, Relic, Book of the Dead and many more.
“…a wild ride into the reality of human consciousness…a kickass adventure story that will have you thrumming through the pages well into the night…handled with stunning effect.”— James Rollins, bestselling author of Black Order, Sandstorm and Map of Bones as well as many others.
