"One of the year's best thrillers, See No More is a near-perfect blend of sci-fi and spy fiction. Credit author W.B. Dineen with creating a powerful novel about personal identity wrapped within a breathtaking thriller. Sure to please fans of both Douglas E. Richards and Daniel Silva " --BestThrillers.com
Thirty-three-year-old music therapist, Kate Randolph, is at the top of her professional game. Her life is happily on track, until she receives a phone call announcing the death of the man who abandoned her when she was eight years old. Kate has no interest in going to her father’s funeral, but soon realizes she must confront the past to move forward.
While in Oregon, Kate discovers why her scientist/father disappeared, and what she learns will set her on a path that will change her life forever.
With her father’s good friend, Jake, she uncovers conspiracies beyond imagination. She learns of secret societies, cover-ups, and that the planet is in jeopardy from both terrestrial and extraterrestrial threats.
With the aid of a mysterious stranger, Kate must help save the world. Can she stay alive long enough to succeed?
“Dineen writes in a sharp, lively prose that is equally comfortable rendering emotional domestic moments, flashy action sequences, and humorous observations. The premise is wonderfully mysterious and immediately gripping. An expansive thriller that satisfies every absent-father fantasy.” —Kirkus Reviews
I pour a cup of coffee before opening the letter. Oddly, my favorite creamer is in the refrigerator and I wonder if Jake’s a fan, too. Otherwise, how would he ever know I use sugar-free nondairy hazelnut creamer?
I sit down at the old farmhouse table in the kitchen and sip my coffee. I run my hands over the envelope and even bring it to my nose to smell it.
I pull out one sheet of lined paper in my dad’s handwriting.
There are a million things I want to say to you. But the very first is that I love you. I never stopped. I thought of you every day and wished with all my heart things could have been different. For reasons you will learn later, I cannot easily explain why I left. I will tell you the story though, but it must be in my own way.
It's important you don’t dispose of my things for a full year after I’m gone. I’ve left plenty of money to pay the taxes and keep the house up in the interim. Please trust me on this.
I’m sure you’re wondering why you should trust me about anything, but I promise I won’t let you down again.
If Buddy isn’t to your liking, Jake will take him. But if you wind up loving him as much as I think you will, I promise there’s never been a better friend in this world.
My Whole Heart,
Dear God, how can I do this? It’s taken me twenty-five years to get the laceration left by his departure to scab over. Being here is like ripping it off without anything to numb the pain or staunch the flow of blood. I have to keep this house for a whole year? I know I don’t have to come back after this weekend, but that’s really not an option. I need to figure out the mystery of Jeffrey’s disappearance for my own sanity. I’m entitled to some answers.
