Author’s newly published fictional novel seems so real that it can possibly be true.

good guy meets bad guy

The techniques are real. The targets are real. The motivation is real; the desire is real. Even more frightening than that, the plots are real and are being attempted even at present. So, is this just pure fiction? It’s really up to the readers as author Michael J. Smith Sr. brings forth Casting Shadows, his newly released novel on terrorism.

Casting Shadows is a suspense thriller with law enforcement and military leanings, terrorism and world domination—twisting back and forth between sides. General Davies and his men square off against the most ruthless radical group ever. It’s not just a “good guy meets bad guy” book but has many dimensions of good and evil; the perception of which may vary, depending on the angle the readers are witnessing. Whoever the real bad guys are, whether this could really happen, and if the task force can really win—will gradually unfold as readers immerse deep into the story. Watching heinous attacks being formed with shocking precision, having a goal that’s nothing less than total domination, and using methods from the fires of hell itself, this novel will carry readers through the development of the most sinister plot in the history of mankind. Complex and very involved, the plot destroys believers and nonbelievers alike.

“Enjoy this book the way it was intended, not to terrify but enlighten and make these attempts public. Yes, they can happen. Yes, they are trying. And yes, we can stop them. So is this really a fictional book or a book that hedges on insanity? Is this book a recipe for disaster or too far-fetched to believe? Read it and make your own decision. This book, like real life, will continue. The plots will always be there, and the desire will continue. The will to survive is stronger than humans can comprehend. For a nation to survive, it sometimes takes continuous vigilance and strength. When one or the other is lacking, then evil creeps in to steal what it can,” says the author.
