Imagine seeing a light or an image or maybe something that appears to come up right out of the ocean. Real or just within your imagination? Bett Snow outward was outbound from Port Essex harbor. A strange sensation had gripped his body just once before, now he’s really scared. A shimmer in the sky, a green flash, or was it? The suspense is heart-stopping and the blue light color descends from above it looks like it had wings. The result is scary as we learn more but Bert will not live to tell.
The bartender of the Pelican Perch made that statement at the start of this encounter and review. Claiming it looked like a lobster pot, but bigger. He said it kind of shimmered and he could see right through it. Is it a UFO or something else? Warren kept saying the same thing and Westy chimed in that what was said he saw too.
Clay Wolfe and Baylee Baker are partners in the PI firm. Talking in a bar and referring to Westy and Warren’s accounts of what they saw, it’s called Unidentified Aerial phenomena, and a task force has been created to report to the office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security. This is not even the tip of the wild iceberg or vision.
Two agents were assigned and from this point on it gets interesting.
Clay and Baylee have a working relationship but there’s something between them that is unspoken. They are hired to follow Alice Smith because her husband wants to see if she’s cheating on him. Leaving to go out to supposedly buy bread, the man she meets insists that she promise him anything. Wait until you witness what. Terrifying!
Added in we need Washington and when you learn what she has planned the Unidentified Arial Phenomena will take a slightly back seat.
Bonny came into Clay’s life and she’s not the only one he had a relationship with.
Alice Smith was to be followed but what happens when she does not come home or go to work? They have no idea she’s permanently gone.
The coolest scenes are with his grandpops and learning his administrative assistant was moving in with him. Crystal is not the usual assistant and her personality is more like Berta on Two and a Half Men or Betty White’s role as Sue Ann Nivens in Mary Tyler Moore.
Meet the rest of the players involved in trying to figure out the UFOs or unidentified aerial phenomena. Tyler Howard, Murphy, Bert, Rhonda and more. The two agents Haxton and Pernot who may or may not work for the task force created to investigate the unexplained phenomenon.
The author introduces Seagull Aviation who offered Bonny a job. They appear to be some sort of military contractor but the Air Force announced Next GenerationAir Dominance Program. Exactly what does that mean and what exactly is Seagull Aviation? Meet Fletcher Cox and Orlov and they explain that us Clay and the 2 agents from the task force, what their visit has to do with what they are once.
Things get tense when Clay realizes that someone was impersonating Alice with another man with her. What he sees on a video or tape and what us revealed is horrific and unexplained.
A meeting with law enforcement talks about the death of Alice Smith exposed to a chemical as Baylee gets too close to Fletcher. What is Seagull Aviation really about? Why is Pernot questioning Clay about Alice and who is he really? Why was he and Haxton flying out of town and who took a shot at Baylee and blew up his grandpops kitchen?
Washington and her company are at the heart of this conspiracy. UAPTF shows up, an agent working for her is checking around and Clay. Lucy Gunnar and Jo Olson are responsible for the shot taken at Baylee and the explosion. Added in Cloutier our journalist turns up interesting information on Arrow and his affiliation with Chad the company run by Washington. Bonny James is definitely not who she says she is and Clay is Groton close as Baylee better watch it with Fletcher. Cosmocracy Hyperpower Advanced Dogma:CHAD . What is it ? What are each member after and what is the end goal?
Then an article that enlightens Clay an interview with Pernot and his take on someone creating a world order and what about the sightings? Then Clay is attacked and something about Bob, Alice’s husband does not ring true.
Interwoven plots, characters that are not who we think they are, Clay who faces more than his share is adversity and heartbreak plus Baylee gets blindsided in many directions. Murphy, Crystal, Cloutier, Westy true friendships, risking it all but in the end what will the final revelation be? Bodies are falling, crossbows as weapons, chemical that can melt a body and more.
It all comes down to CHAD and world government , global government or Cosmocracy. The concept of a common political authority for all humanity, giving way to a global government and worse a single state or polity with jurisdiction over the entire world. You won’t believe how it will or would happen. CHAD is behind Covid, Islamic State of Iraq and more and you won’t believe you Washington really is. What role does Fletcher play, Lucy, Orlov and Bonny? Who initiated the entire Dark Arrow and what is it and what will it do? Could or will they succeed in blowing it up?
An ending filled with suspense, twists and what if CHAD still exists even after what they were able to do?
Author Matt Cost takes us deep inside the diabolical minds of several who want to rule the world, take away our voices and freedom and make sure that we are all caught in a Cosmic Gap of our own. Clay and Baylee risk it all with Westy, Cloutier, Crystal and Murphy. What did each witness who saw a UAP see? Is this over? Only our creative author knows age answer.
