It's 1963 and America as a country is at a crossroads: Vietnam, the civil rights movement, the Cuban missile crisis, the sexual revolution, FBI, CIA, LSD - and a promise of change offered by a new President, John F Kennedy. Some people believe in the future. Other conspire to control it. Chandler Forrestal is a man whose life is changed forever when he is unwittingly dragged into a CIA mind-control experiment. After being given a massive dose of LSD, Chandler develops a frightening array of mental powers. With his heightened perception he uncovers a plot to assassinate President Kennedy. Chased by the dark powers of world government, will Chandler be able to harness his 'shift' and rewrite history?

From acid induced mind control to covert operations in Cuba, from a missing nuclear weapon to mass hallucinations, SHIFT runs a gamut that your inner conspiracy theorist will find delightful and provocative...reading SHIFT is like fighting a featherweight boxer. Always moving, constantly on its toes, it peppers you with small punches until, eventually, you succumb and it delivers the knockout. But oh, what a fight, and certainly one that is enjoyable and frenetic from start to finish...For an engaging romp through the '60s that never were, look no further than SHIFT. -- Book Page
