"Similar to comic book Gen 13"
Within the CIA, a top secret and totally covert operation
was going on involving a team with psi powers. The hope
was they could be used as long distance weapons for
assassinations. Before that could happen, one of the
team's handler's Kevin McConnell took off with the kids,
causing the whole project to collapse. The head of the
operation Barry Hunter wants them back and is using another
teen with ESP to locate them.
Kevin, James, Summer and Kate have made a home for
themselves near Hollywood with the help of Detective Daniel
Kaufman. Movie star Lacy Preston is found dead in her home
and the official cause of death is suicide. Her best
friend Denise, a scriptwriter, falls out a window trying to
get away from a fire that doesn't really exist. Both women
had lifetime contracts with Malcolm Saul, owner of Paradise
Pictures, a very mysterious and dangerous man.
Fans of the comic book Gen 13 and those readers who can
envision the X-Files inside the Twilight Zone will have a
good handle on what INTO THE DARKNESS is all about. Each
of the protagonists is very endearing, especially Kevin and
the three wafts he rescued so they could live a normal
life. Between trying to figure out whom or what is behind
the attacks on the two women and wondering when Hunter is
going to make his move, readers won't have a moment to
catch their breath.
