Writing Extraction Point!

Travis S. "Doc" Taylor, best-selling science and science fiction author of the
Warp Speed series, the Tau Ceti series, co-author of the first book in the
Cresperian Saga, Human By Choice, and co-author of the Looking Glass series
with John Ringo; and Stephanie Osborn, best-selling co-author of books two and
three of the Cresperian Saga The Y Factor and The Cresperian Allliance, and the
science fiction mystery Burnout: The mystery of Space Shuttle STS-281, are
collaborating on the first novel in the Point series, Extraction Point!, for Twilight
Times Books.

Brilliant scientist and government operative Dr. Reagan "Ray" Brady is a man
with a shadowed, and painful, past. He should be dead. In fact, the man he was
IS "dead," and the identity he now has is not the one with which he was born.
Were it not for two faithful friends, now dubbed Jay and Ernie, all three men
would truly be dead.

Instead, Ray has what he considers the perfect life: the three now work for
an ultra-secret division of the Department of Homeland Security, on the lookout
for invasion by rather unique sorts of illegal aliens - "Santa Clauses," or
extraterrestrials, and "Easter Bunnies," or time travelers. This team includes
not only Ray, but his wife and team leader, Samantha Brady. The team's
"mascot" is their one year old daughter, Abigail.

Things couldn't be any more perfect for Ray - until a mysterious man shows
up, leaving several dead men in his wake. When Ray's team confronts the man
in the Big Apple, Ray is nearly beaten to a pulp, then watches as the man
leaps from the roof of a ten story building - and vanishes in mid-air. Meanwhile,
Samantha is watching video from the Y-12 Plant in Oak Ridge, Tennessee,
and seconds after his disappearance from NYC, sees the same man saunter
calmly in for a full guided tour of the facility. A genetic scientist, whose work
is on the cutting edge of research, disappears from his locked office. And
large quantities of gold and other items are being stolen from within bank vaults
and other secure facilities around the world. Most disturbing is the missing fissile
material from Oak Ridge.

Who is this man? Why does his image show up through three centuries of
Earth's history? How do he and his men manage to travel seemingly
instantaneously? What does he intend to do with all of the stolen wealth and
dangerous material he has amassed? And can Ray and his team stop him before
Ray loses everything he now holds dear?
