A mysterious streak of light cuts through the sky. Those it touches see the past and the future together, but the memory soon fades. The American military investigates, but finds nothing.

Archeil, a Native-American in Alaska, feels the light cut through him. Now the sun sets to the north of where it belongs. He consults a tribal elder, but the man won’t tell Archeil the light’s identity.

A mother and her young daughter miraculously escape the great Los Angeles earthquake. Now they both know the secret: The light isn’t something…it’s someone.

The world is under observation, but to what end? The pope with a dark secret suddenly has a vision that will forever change the world—but how to accomplish it? A reprobate Colorado pastor whose family died in his place is running from God. Can he escape the Holy Father’s vision of a new world?

Reconnaissance takes you on both sides of the veil of eternity.

Craige McMillan is an American novelist raised in the Midwest. He attended college in California. His life has been shaped by work in the intelligence world overseas, computer technology in America, and his love of writing. He lives with his wife in the high desert country of Central Oregon.

Editorial Reviews

"The first book, 'Reconnaissance,' offers a mix of adventure, religious themes, apocalyptic scenarios, fantasy and science fiction. Several story lines develop and intersect on a course that takes the reader from Alaska to Rome to Brazil. The tale is told through the eyes and voices of colorful characters-a revivalist preacher, a corrupt pope, a rough-edged sea-going non-believer, and a struggling mother and child who accept without question the intervention of God's centurions." -Blue Mountain Eagle Newspaper
