About Evolution:

Two years have passed since the dramatic conclusion of Operation EXCISE. Dolan has moved home to Boston to mend when once again, the Agency comes knocking. Terrorists have launched a bioweapon in the Middle East, thousands are dying of a horrifying virus with no cure, and Dolan is the key to preventing more attacks. Only this time, everything will be done on his terms...

Fans of Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity will appreciate the internecine struggle and cryptic complexity of the protagonist, Michael Dolan, as will fans of Tom Clancy's Patriot Games who savor a page-turner about an unlikely spy thrust into adversity, only to emerge the strongest and most capable of them all.

EVOLUTION is book two in the Devolution Trilogy, a psychological spy thriller series. DEVOLUTION and REVELATION are books one and three.

About Meridian:
Meridian is John Casey's second Raw Thoughts title. In much the same way as its prequel, Meridian was artfully crafted with compelling and visceral snapshots of the heart, mind, and soul in accordance with an underlying philosophy that suggests positive change is possible if certain steps are taken. Each poem within is symbiotically paired with a photograph (a 'raw thought'). By degrees, the book charts a path from darkness and confusion to a place of enlightenment. If and as they relate to each step along that path, the reader can attempt to analyze, understand, and revise not just their thoughts, but the way that they think. Knowledge gained from the resultant awakening can free the mind to interpret the world more accurately.

Meridian addresses analysis and improvement of thought in a manner that is less emotive and more refined than in Raw Thoughts. It offers an approach that is cognitive to an extent that most people will not instinctively endeavor to pursue. This is a distinction that lends itself naturally to a next-level pursuit of clarity and personal growth.
