“I came into this publishing experience entirely green. Although, I had some ideas floating around in my head of what the cover may look like, how I’d like the interior to be displayed, etc., I could not have been more amazed at your professionalism, expertise, and creativity throughout. Additionally, you all showed me a great deal of respect and patience even though I asked so many questions. I have given a copy to a Best Selling author and the very first thing he said to me was, “Wow! Amazing cover. Who did this for you?” My response was that my mind simply could not have come up with something so perfect for this book, and much praise went to Outskirts Press. All in all, the words above just don’t do justice to how very thankful I am to you all. Book 2 is in the works, and without question, I will be a returning customer!”

‘Deviate in any way and Audrey dies’ are the words that cry out in Jacob’s mind as he lies helplessly stuffed in the trunk of an unknown car. Out of Reech follows writing professor, Jacob Reech as he struggles to save his fiancée from being murdered by a man hell-bent on rewriting America’s history. With only an arsenal of wit, determination, and resolve, Jacob must lead a brazen group of men, dormant for years, to one of the nation’s most storied relics, the Washington Diamond. The problem is, however, he must find it first; its location hidden among four ingenious clues whose solutions will challenge any mind. A cryptic language, a crafty passphrase, a clever riddle, and a phantom message hidden within a file are the dots that must be connected in this 200 year old deadly treasure hunt. Help from the authorities, as Jacob learns, will only threaten him more as their involvement with the faction known simply as, The Movement, eventually surfaces. Only the secretive and dangerously enlisted help of Kyle Voelner, an underestimated student athlete, will determine the fate of Jacob and Audrey, and help preserve the nation’s profound history. Jacob’s unknown journey spans from Michigan to Tennessee, and eventually piques the interest of Morton Caldwell, the President of the United States. In his lightning-fast race against time, Jacob’s obedience to The Voice, the group’s ruthless and unrelenting leader, and the answers to the four clues, are his only chance to once again see Audrey alive. In the end, however, he must face incomprehensible demons as one of the deepest betrayals cascades over his heart and soul.
