Within the CIA, a top secret and totally covert operation was going on involving a team with psi powers. The hope was they could be used as long distance weapons for assassinations. Before that could happen, one of the team's handler's Kevin McConnell took off with the kids, causing the whole project to collapse. The head of the operation Barry Hunter wants them back and is using another een with ESP to locate them.

Kevin, James, Summer and Kate have made a home for themselves near Hollywood with the help of Detective Daniel Kaufman. Movie star Lacy Preston is found dead in her home and the official cause of death is suicide. Her best friend Denise, a scriptwriter, falls out a window trying to get away from a fire that doesn't really exist. Both women had lifetime contracts with Malcolm Saul, owner of Paradise Pictures, a very mysterious and dangerous man.

Fans of the comic book Gen 13 and those readers who can envision the X-Files inside the Twilight Zone will have a good handle on what INTO THE DARKNESS is all about. Each of the protagonists is very endearing, especially Kevin and the three wafts he rescued so they could live a normal life. Between trying to figure out whom or what is behind the attacks on the two women and wondering when Hunter is going to make his move, readers won't have a moment to catch their breath.
