True Believers

True Believers FC

She didn’t look like the kind of woman you’d imagine was in contact with an extraterrestrial from Alpha Centauri.

Business is slow for Burlington, Vermont, private investigator John “Hack” Loomis, so when Loomis’s assistant Connie Noble asks him to look into the disappearance of her friend Belle Ryerson, Loomis agrees. Belle went missing after attending a meeting of a local UFO group run by a charismatic psychiatrist who treats people who believe they’ve been abducted by aliens, and a disarmingly beautiful woman who claims to be in contact with an alien mother ship. As Loomis’s investigation takes him and Connie to the edge of the lunatic fringe and beyond, they find themselves facing people far more dangerous than true believers.

True Believers is my sixth book. A bit of a departure from the previous books: it is set in the United States. It was a long time coming. My day job got in the way. Published by Linda Leith Publishing. Available in paper and electrons. Buy it directly from the publisher (click or tap on the book cover) or from your favourite bookstore, Amazon, Chapters-Indigo or the Apple iBookstore.
