Here's the set-up:

A mysterious device.

A physicist with advanced medical knowledge.

A man's quest to uncover the secrets of his past and save the woman he loves.

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. As their friendship progresses, John discovers that his neighbor is guarding a terrible secret. His search for answers leads to a startling truth about his own troubled past as an orphan and the fate of humanity.
The Device is a character-driven mystery that explores loss and redemption, corruption and miracles. Fans of  speculative fiction--George Orwell's 1984 and Aldous Huxley's Brave New World---will enjoy the frightening climax.

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
