What if you discovered that people were disappearing at an alarming rate? What if those mysterious lights in the sky had something to do with the disappearances?

David (Dave) Reed works for the CIA. He works for the Message Watch Office, monitoring emails that arrive, making sure nothing unusual pops up. He’s also been studying to get his Master’s degree in world history, in the hopes of improving his career options. Dave believes he has his life and career all planned out. But he has this insatiable fascination with UFOs, an interest that has consciously and subconsciously marked his life since a mysterious encounter while serving at the Hummel Airforce Base in Alaska. Recent UFO activity in the small town of Ramps, Virginia, sparks his interest and a weekend camping trip with a co-worker, who’s also interested in UFOs, takes a different direction when the two decide to make Ramps their camping destination. And even their destination of Ramps becomes another anomaly in an already unusual plot.
Bill Higgins’ science fiction novel, Modify Destiny, is full of unexpected and unusual twists and turns. There is something very top secret about these UFOs and only the highest level of command with the highest level of security knows the full truth. As the plot thickens, the reader wonders if this ‘very top secret’ knowledge will, at some point, be revealed. At first glance, the novel is another UFO mystery. But deeper into the plot there is a multitude of characters and interactions that create the illusion of a real life scenario, one that someone involves the assassinated President Kennedy. And where will this mystery lead? This is a fast-action page-turner, with a very believable plot and personable characters. It will certainly make readers want to question the many what if’s of life and what really is the truth.
