When John Timmons finds an unusual metal object behind his cabin in Colorado, he suspects it belongs to his new neighbor, Jacob Mowat--a retired nuclear engineer who claims to have been employed by the government.

From the reviewers:

Patrick Skelton's
The Device is a gripping tale that captivates readers with very subtle science fiction elements. Like all good directors or story tellers, it is what Skelton doesn't tell you in the narrative that keeps the reader guessing where it is all leading.  

The Device is the debut novel by author Patrick Skelton, a dystopian/science fiction novel that I just couldn't put down. In The Device, the science fiction aspect enhances, rather than overpowers, the incredibly intriguing story.

An engrossing, character driven story, with a science fiction heart.  I enjoyed this book and would recommend anyone interested in science fiction, family dramas, romances, or even inspirational fiction. Truly a book for all audiences.

What a great surprise this book was!  I loved everything about it. The characters all had a depth that is seldom found in books that are story's told in the first person.  The pace of the book kept me involved while the complexity of the plot drew me into the layers that surrounded the truth. 

Patrick Skelton resides in Columbus, OH with his wife Jennifer. He is currently writing his second novel. Please visit the author at
