Books That Build Your Faith
A Senate Intelligence Committee member recommended Will Lyons to the CIA. They were experiencing what they described as “paranormal attacks against Western Democracies.” The Committee member told them Will understood the supernatural realm and might be able to help.
Once contacted by the CIA, Will believed it was his duty to help his country, but that was before he was given a security clearance and briefed on all of the details. He never dreamed his decision to help would ultimately make him a target of his own government.
During the Cold War, the CIA and the KGB both had psychic weapons programs. After investing millions, the US shut down their Stargate Project in 1995, concluding that the results were unreliable. They assumed that the Russians would reach the same conclusion, but that was before the bizarre attacks started. They were natural phenomena, such as tsunamis, earthquakes or extreme weather conditions, but they were always timed to compromise strategic military operations or disrupt important government summits. For years, the CIA suspected they a telekinetic weapon but couldn’t prove it.
Then, a defecting Russian spy confirmed not only the weapon’s existence but also its imminent use in a massive, preemptive strike against the United States. The current administration in Washington played down such a fantastic threat; fearing release of the information would create panic and cause a political backlash. This left Will with a choice between risking the lives of millions of people or breaking his oath and running afoul of the US Espionage Act. Back then, Will didn’t know the meaning of high-value target but he was soon to find out.
