Covert Dreams Book Review and Giveaway


THIS INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED SUSPENSE THRILLER by Michael Meyer has been compared to Robert Ludlum's Bourne series, and the writing style has been compared to that of Dean Koontz.

Imagine waking up remembering intimate details about a country in which you have never traveled and fluently speaking a language that you have never spoken. B.J. is living the ideal life. He has a great wife, a wonderful job. And yet he is experiencing life-like vivid dreams of Munich, a city he has never visited.

Stan Halsey is a professor in Saudi Arabia, who sends for his wife to join him. She arrives, and, in the blink of an eye, she vanishes, leaving no trace of ever being alive in either the United States or in Saudi Arabia.

My Review
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  B.J. and Gina are a wonderfully loving couple.  They wanted children, but that was not to be, yet through even that,  they became closer than ever…until now.  His dreams have begun taking taking over his life!  What’s real?  What’s not?  Is he losing his mind???

Stan Halsey and his lovely wife Valerie have decided they need a fresh start after the unfortunate death of their son.  Stan has a lucrative job offer in Saudi Arabia and leaves Valerie in Rome while he sets things up.  She sends a message saying she’s about to land in Jeddah.  When he arrives, not only is she nowhere to be found but there’s no evidence of any paperwork proving her existence.  Is he losing his mind?  Does Valerie even really exist?

I’m not giving anymore character descriptions besides these two main characters for fear of creating spoilers.  This novel will definitely be on my top ten favorites of 2013.  The story has so many twists and turns, it left me with my head spinning (in a good way)!  The end shocked me, trust me, read this book, you’ll be picking your jaw up off of the ground.  BEST. READ. EVER!

About the Author
I have resided in and have visited many places in the world, all of which have contributed in some way to my own published writing. I have literally traveled throughout the world, on numerous occasions. I have lived in Finland, Germany, Thailand, Saudi Arabia (where COVERT DREAMS is set), and the U.S. Virgin Islands (where DEADLY EYES is set). I gained the wanderlust to see the world, to experience other cultures, at an early age, and this desire has never left me. If anything, it has only gained in intensity as I have aged. I try to travel internationally at least once a year. In the interim, I spend lots of time traveling around both my home state of California and other nearby states.
I spent my early years in the small town of Lone Pine, California, the home of almost every western movie, in addition to a wide variety of other genres, made in the 30's, 40's, 50's, and 60's. In fact, Hollywood still films parts of big-time movies there today. My dad, the town's lifeguard at the time, personally knew John Wayne, Lloyd Bridges, and Lee Marvin, all of whom came to the town's pool, the Memorial Plunge, at times to cool off after a hectic day of working in the sun. I was even an extra in a movie filmed there in 1957, MONOLITH MONSTERS, a B-cult favorite even today. I was ten years old at the time. Even though I resided in a small town hours from the big city, I was exposed to the excitement of action and heroes at a formative age, and, thus, my interest in writing novels of suspense such as COVERT DREAMS and DEADLY EYES was born.
