Please, no more calls about secret government conspiracies or ancient cults.

Conspiracy theories, government corruption, and a really good mix of Prince drives David Corey to help solve the mysterious disappearance of a famous politician’s son. When David realizes that the truth is much more dangerous than a kidnapping, he must battle ancient secrets that have endangered the lives of children for centuries. This conspiracy-fueled adventure story looks at the darker side of American history through the eyes of an unlikely team of heroes. If they fail, the American government and its people may not survive. 

Stephanie Phillips on where the idea for Descendent came from:

“The idea started with the ransom notes found during the time of the Lindbergh kidnapping. There was this weird circular symbol found on the bottom of the notes, and there really isn’t a good explanation about what that symbol means. That was my jumping off point to investigate the symbol and some of the darker, unsolved mysteries in American history.”

Phillips on who the book is for:

“The book is for me! This is all the stuff that interests me and I want to write about, but I hope others enjoy what I have come up with. I think history buffs will really dig it. This book is an action story, mixed with some comedy, mixed with a mystery, mixed with historical fiction. If you like any of that, then I think this book is for you.”
