Keeping Secrets

The vine is your attitude—killing the truth. Soon you don't know what's right or wrong anymore. And you don't care.” Meely bowed her head, her black hair hiding her tortured eyes. “I'm so afraid of the truth,” she whispered.

There's horse trouble in Montana again in this second installment in Amish author, Linda Byler's, series, "Sadie's Montana." Someone is shooting horses and Sadie is determined to find out who it is. That is until she begins to suspect that Mark, her boyfriend, may be involved. Will Sadie discover the truth? Will it be too hard to bear? There's horse trouble in Montana again. Only this time, horses aren't being stolen, they're being shot. Snipers are driving a blue pickup and shooting selectively. No hard-working ranch horse or Amish horse and buggy is safe. Still, Sadie rides, despite daily warnings from Dorothy down in the kitchen of Aspen East Ranch. But Sadie's getting used to ignoring Dorothy's advice. Sadie's heart is set on Mark even though Dorothy tells her to steer clear after he ditches her in the middle of their first date. Then Daniel appears—a visitor from Lancaster County. With cornflower-blue eyes and a strong, square jaw, he is everything that Mark is not. He's funny, well-mannered, and completely dedicated to his family. Mark, on the other hand, finds it hard to tell Sadie the secrets of his past. He tells her pieces of the shadowy story, then won't speak to her for weeks. Sadie's troubles continue at home when she discovers that her youngest sister, Anna, is struggling with bulimia. As Sadie's world spins out of control, her palomino, Paris, remains her sole confidant. But does Sadie put Paris in danger every time they go riding? Or, together, can they discover who these mysterious snipers are? Will Mark help her? Or is he one of the horse-hunters? Why, Sadie wonders desperately, are there so many secrets? Will the truth surface, or is it too hard to bear?

Sci-fi is very popular these days. We love our tech gadgets that do wonders that seem like miracles or magic. We can't get enough of it, in books, in movies and on television. We are on a train that no one knows for sure where it's leading us. Will technology be used to help us gain better control over our lives or will our lives become controlled by technology instead. What if the answer was both? The former wouldn't be cause for alarm but, the latter would be. Just how is technology going to control our lives and will it hurt? Tell No Lies But Keep Secrets takes the reader on a journey that's filled on the future of mankind and where technology should fit into the schema of man's existence. Tell No Lies But Keep Secrets is an action thriller with action scenes and fight scenes that would look awesome on the big screen. There are some unexpected twisted to the unusual fight scenes in the action thriller spy genre. What I like most about this story is, besides writing it, is the technology. Much of the technology in Tell No Lies But keep Secrets is fringe science but, some of it actually does exist with only bits of the full scope of the technology having been released to the public such as mind reading technologies. The future tech that was created for this story does not exist today but, there is a great possibility that it some day could. Tell No Lies But Keep will have the reader think about technology and its place amongst us. The reader is also taken on a journey that will have them pondering on what are the real truths and what are created truths of their very own existence.
