A team of superhuman spies navigate dangerous global espionage in the sequel to the paranormal historical thriller MJ-12: Inception.

It’s 1949, and the Cold War is heating up across the world. Operating in the shadows, the Variants—once ordinary US citizens, but now imbued with strange paranormal abilities and corralled into covert service by the government’s top secret MAJESTIC-12 program—find themselves on the front lines of an international crisis.

In Syria, Variant agents have been sent to support a coup by a pro-American army officer. In Washington, a shocking suicide has them fighting for their very freedom. And at Area 51, the operation’s headquarters, the strange interspatial phenomenon which originally granted Variants their abilities has yielded disturbing discoveries.

All the while, dangerous figures flit among the shadows, and it’s unclear whether they are threatening to expose the Variants for what they are . . . or completely destroy them. Are they working for the Soviet Union, or something far worse?

Praise for MJ-12: Shadows

“So good, in fact, that it makes you wonder why all sequels can’t be this good . . . a fun, inventive, action-packed exploration of super spies operating in the shadows of history, and an almost perfect sequel.”—Fantasy Faction, 10/10

“Martinez is just really good at hitting the ball out of the park when he writes a sequel. . . . A great spy novel. . . . may well rank as his best work.”—InfiniteFreeTime.com

Praise for MJ-12: Inception

“A smart look at a Cold War in many ways even colder and scarier and deadlier than the one we barely survived.”
New York Times bestselling author Harry Turtledove

“A heady blend of super-spies and superpowers, MJ-12: Inception is Cold War-era science fiction done right. A taut thriller, and skillfully evocative.”
New York Times bestselling author Chris Roberson

“The Cold War becomes even more chilling as super-powered Americans are trained to become super-spies in Martinez's new alternate-history thriller. It's morally-complex, intense, and so steeped in the 1940s, you can smell the cigarette smoke.”
—Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth and The Clockwork Dagger

Praise for Michael J. Martinez

“[Martinez] seamlessly blends popular elements from science fiction and fantasy, producing a work that raises the bar for both.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review for The Venusian Gambit)
