an extraterrestrial encounter? Or a hoax. You know how Uncle Wilson has shown he can make strange things happen before. Maybe he's up to his tricks again? Maybe, maybe not. Now I'm in a position to finally see for myself. Then, again, maybe it would have been better to just stay at home? A venture into the fairly near future, and how things work then.

The decision to seek answers to the question of Uncle Wil's strange encounter and odd skills leads his nephew and his partner, Riley, on an adventure that could very well land them in Federal Prison

I waited a bit after posting the whole enchilada, then just now went back and reread the whole thing, catching a few bugs. I hate to brag (I love to brag), but this is a really good piece of work. There is a good bit of imagination, some deft plot development, and a decent conclusion that should satisfy any reader. Don't be afraid to give it a try, please.

There is a door at the front of St. Paul's (and others) Cathedral in Rome that is opened only once every 25 years (or when the Pope decides to open it otherwise) for which the purpose is to allow anyone who enters that door to seek, and receive, absolution for all their previous sins. Makes sense? Of course not, but it serves some sort of purpose, I suppose. When I visited there, I asked the tour guide if the ones trying to get through the door were mostly priests. I got a cold stare.

Let's say you read the first chapter and shrug and say, "not worth the effort to slog through 30 chapters of this drivel...

well, okay, cut to the chase, read the last 3 chapters and shrug again...."well, maybe it would have been fun to read the whole thing, but who has the time?"

We have a dear friend who has served as a nun for her whole adult life, over 50 years. I have seen her angry and weeping over the money used to pay off claims by victims of sexual abuse at the hands of priests. Her POV, because of all the work she has done in poor communities in the USA, is that that activity has robbed deserving people of resources they need.
