Hi - I’m Casey Alden. I’ll tell you right up front that’s not my real name. I wrote my novel, Conspiracy, under a pseudonym for reasons that will become apparent when you read the novel. Conspiracy is a mystery/thriller with elements of science fiction, which merges fiction with hard facts in a similar vein to Dan Brown’s work in The Da Vinci Code. Why did I write Conspiracy? After doing research on the topics of crowd manipulation, mass control and related areas, I began to see a definite thread which could be traced throughout history. At first, I expected to write a nonfiction work outlining the historical trends of mass control, but as I became more and more fascinated with the topic, uncanny “coincidences” began to make themselves known; so many, in fact, that it was obvious they were not coincidences at all, but connections. About that time, it occurred to me that I might be able to reach a wider audience if I added some entertainment value to the topic, so Conspiracy became a novel. My goal in writing Conspiracy as a work of fiction is to create a public awareness of these connections, which are quite often astounding and terrifying. The Conspiracy series reveals the shadowy underside of the illusion we call “real life.” Many of us have been living in the fog of illusion for too long. While we are watching TV, playing video games, and being more concerned about celebrities than news broadcasts, someone in the background is forming the thrust of the future. If we do not pay attention to who is watching the store, we may find out too late that we have been robbed – robbed of our freedom and, perhaps, even of our lives.

Conspiracy is an amazing book. The research that went into it is absolutely mind blowing. It is a real page turner. Conspiracy is a blend of fact and fiction so cleverly constructed that you are never quite sure what's reality and what isn't - which is one of the reasons I had to keep reading to find out how it would turn out. Then I discovered there will be a sequel, Conspiracy 2. Toward the end of the book it takes a sharp 90 degree turn with the introduction of a fascinating new character, The Man, and a startling turn of events that leads into the sequel. I can't wait to read the next book. Conspiracy appeals on many levels - as a thoughtful investigation of who really controls the world we live in; as an intriguing look into the lives of the characters who are being controlled by sinister forces; and perhaps as a warning to all of us to pay attention to what is going on right under our noses. In addition to being a really great read, it opened my eyes to many documented facts which I was unaware of -at least I was unaware of the amazing way in which these historical facts are connected to us today. Do your self a favor and read this book. It has the potential to become a classic in the vein of 1984 or Brave New World.

Casey Alden's "Conspiracy" (Volume I) proved to be a spellbinder. The three main characters vividly portrayed...a magnetic force drawing them together. I liked the "stream of consciousness" Alden assigned to each of his protagonists. The plot is based on facts interwoven with fantasy. Mystery and science fiction lovers will be well entertained in the pages of this timely novel. I can't wait to read the next installment. I care about what happens to the people who live and struggle and search for truth in the technically driven world Casey Alden has created in "Conspiracy".
