Cover Picture.The Hidden Reality

The Hidden Reality is the second stand-alone novel in a trilogy starring the brilliant inventor Alex Pella. In the year 2084, Pella, finds himself at a precarious crossroad between the pursuit of justice and preservation of his own sanity. While attempting to undermine an international New World Order government created by the financial juggernaut known as The New Reality, he must also face the hidden truths about his own genetic heritage that are slowly destroying him.

Martino’s villain is a corporation run by a cadre of ruthless international bankers known as The New Reality. Directed by the most corrupt and morally unscrupulous of the bunch, Myra Keres, the company has economically seized control of the world’s governments and the population’s personal freedoms in the process. In order to save humanity from this despot ruler and the unwonted atrocities to which she plans to perpetuate on the world, Alex Pella must infiltrate the company and face an enemy that has unknowingly haunted both him and history for almost 2500 years.

 In The Hidden Reality, Martino has included such hot-button contemporary topics as genetic cloning, unprecedented economic debt, progressive loss of personal freedoms, and the threat of a New World Order run by the economic elite, while bringing the reader back almost 2500 years into the past when the ancient city state nation known as Greece fought the mighty Persian Empire for world domination. All of these elements, Martino maintains, separate his book from the pack. The Hidden Reality he says, is “issue-oriented fiction, where there are real concerns facing society today that threaten both the sovereignty and prosperity of our future generations.”
