This is the third book in the science fiction series The Girl with the Turtle Tattoo. The Girl with the Turtle Tattoo has been thrown back in time two thousand years to the first century. She has a terrible task before her. In order to prevent the extinction of humanity, she must murder one of the most beloved religious leaders of all time. In a different timeline, David King faces a similar quandary. The human race is fighting a desperate, losing battle against ferocious space aliens. But preventing Dave and his Resistance fighters from erecting a Dark Energy planetary shield is a fanatical army of nuns, led by his own mother! Across the millennia, Dave and Sally must inspire each other to do the unthinkable, or stand helpless as Earth is destroyed.
Daniel Lyle holds a Ph.D. in Biology, is a lifelong amateur herpetologist, taught medical immunology at a University, completed a career in cell biology research, lectures on how to apply theological and psychological principles in practical ways, and has a strong interest in all aspects of cosmology and physics. From a small kid, he was fascinated with dinosaurs. As such, he has always lived with exotic creatures, including harmless snakes, all housed in his own homemade habitats. Some of his tame pet pythons and anacondas ranged up to twelve feet in length. He is the author of over thirty books, many of which are religious in nature. His writings go beyond the ordinary, exposing deeper aspects of life. His books are meant to be fun, conversational, and helpful. His various works are available at LylePub-lishing.com and Amazon.com. The Girl with the Turtle Tattoo science fiction series was inspired by paintings done by his mother (the cover painting of the first book is one of Mary Lee Lyle's), movies adapting Stieg Larsson's crime novels, and various men and women sporting spectacular body-art tattoos. The first five science fiction novels of Dr. Lyle's The Girl with the Turtle Tattoo series were written in less than a year as a continuous, single story. The story was not plotted in advance but flowed freely, with characters appearing on their own and taking charge of their own destinies. Thus, the author hopes that you, the reader, find them spontaneous, quirky, surprising, and even thought-provoking-just as did he!
