The Author's Inspiration Behind The Story:

I have always believed that we are not alone in the universe and there are probably hundreds of millions of civilizations in existence. It’s difficult for me to believe that the intelligence which created humans, decided it would stop at that point and create nothing else.

That an extraterrestrial civilization might try to propagate its species by sending out its DNA through the vastness of space in a radio frequency, seemed like an interesting concept to explore. I believed it might make a fascinating story and that’s how my short novel was brought to life.

Black Rock Observatory receives a chilling radio transmission from what student Ronald Phillips believes is an alien message from a very distant galaxy. It is New Year’s Eve, 2024, and Ronald expected a quiet night of work as the telescope searched for extraterrestrial life. When scientists become aware of the recording, they are excited and anxious to check it out and share it with the world. A recording is uploaded and the public listens and is excited and anxious. The story quickly shifts to a scary problem of people getting sick and acting strangely. As two doctors, Kevin Dyar and Jame Ketterly, study and investigate this strange new sickness, they realize that it might be the result of the alien recording. It becomes obvious that the disease is somehow linked to the Observatory and the alien message. After weeks of study and the strange ailments continuing, it becomes a do or die situation to find an answer.

Frequency is a suspenseful science fiction story that is only 150 pages but in those pages an amazingly interesting story is told. I am not a true science fiction genre reader but sometimes a book catches my eye and sounds too good to pass up. Frequency fits this bill and I am happy to say I was not disappointed. Frequency has all of the elements needed to make this a hard to put down book. Author John Reizer knows how to put all of the pieces together to write a story that will keep you intrigued and on the edge of your seat until the very last page. Frequency is a thrilling must-read.

This is definitely not your typical alien invasion story. FREQUENCY has a premise that is both creative and thought-provoking, to say the least. I don't want to post too much and spoil the ride for others, but I think anybody who enjoys a good sci-fi story will definitely find this book intriguing.
