Former CIA undercover operative Chase Brandon takes us deep into the mystery of Cryptos, a work of art containing a seemingly uncrackable code, in The Cryptos Conundrum.
A fifteen-foot-tall steel sculpture stands in the courtyard of the Central Intelligence Agency, emblazoned with a message that no one can decipher. The three-inch-high letters on the sculpture form a coded message that is central to the survival of mankind--a message hidden in plain sight, displayed in a public space, with the full text available to anyone who has an internet connection.
One man knows exactly what the statue's message says--because he created it.
Dr. Jonathan S. Chalmers heads a CIA unit tasked with containing the greatest secret our government has ever kept—and planning for its consequences. He alone knows the full story of the threats that face America. Threats that would terrify us if we knew them. Threats that have shaped our country's past, present, and future. Threats that have become his life's work, requiring all his talents, all his energy, and even the lives of members of his family.
If Chalmers can't save us, nobody can.
Former CIA operative Chase Brandon tells a high-intensity, cosmic tale that will leave readers breathless.

At the start of former CIA agent Brandon's ambitious, wildly inventive first novel, a conspiracy thriller with SF/fantasy overtones, Dr. Jonathan S. Chalmers, a brilliant 26-year-old mathematician and engineer, is serving in an American volunteer unit on the Western front in 1916 when a mysterious apparition saves him from a poison gas attack. This apparition will continue to guide Chalmers through the rest of his unusually long life. In WWII, Chalmers, who still looks like he's 26, becomes a top OSS official and helps the American government counter the Axis. As part of a master plan by God (aka Savantis Ga'Lawed), he goes on to witness and initiate some of the world's greatest accomplishments, while solving such mysteries of civilization as how the pyramids were built. This entertaining, if sometimes exhaustive, account threatens to become a laundry list of historical events, conspiracies, and political machinations through the year 4024, but the connections and theories are sure to fascinate many readers.
