Synopsis: From the bestselling author of the Dominic Grey series comes a new novel that is part legal thriller, part psychological mystery, and 100% dark and riveting suspense . . .
Rising above a hardscrabble childhood to become a star at one of Atlanta’s most prestigious law firms, Derek Miller is reliving The Great Gatsby in his own backyard. The spell is broken, however, when Derek’s investigation into the death of his mentor, a prominent psychologist, runs afoul of a mysterious government project involving research into psychic phenomena.
As Derek digs deeper, convinced his mentor was murdered, he is plunged into a rabbit hole of government experiments, clandestine figures, and supposed paranormal events. His investigation also puts him at odds with shadowy forces deep within the corridors of power -- including those on the top floor of his own law firm.
With his career in shambles, a warrant out for his arrest, and his life in jeopardy, Derek is running out of time to unravel the secrets surrounding his mentor’s research. And if he fails, it’s not just his own life that will be at risk, but the lives of those he holds most dear.
From a theoretical physicist to a clairvoyant housewife to the charismatic pastor of a mega-church, from lavish Southern mansions to desperate urban wasteland, Derek’s investigation turns into a race for survival that hinges on one thing alone: finding, and stopping, the most powerful psychic the world has ever seen.
Review: THE METAXY PROJECT is a standalone thriller from the author of the Dominic Grey novels. This book defies the pigeonholes of just a mystery or just a paranormal story, because it is so much more. Told from the perspective of Derek Miller – a man who grew up dirt poor and through hard work and mentoring has been accepted at one of the most prominent law firms in Atlanta. When Derek’s mentor dies, he feels compelled to look into the incident. This ends up taking Derek down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories, governmental experimentation, and psychic occurrences. The forces he’s up against will stop at nothing to destroy Derek so he cannot find the truth. Without knowing who to trust, Derek’s now in a race to save more than just himself. THE METAXY PROJECT is multilayered and spellbinding with rich psychological and emotional depths. All the characters, not just Derek, are three-dimensional and you’ll get to see them evolve throughout the story. Based on a chilling, but not implausible, concept, THE METAXY PROJECT will worm its way into your very soul. Mr. Green’s work shows new facets with each new book. You won’t be disappointed!
