This book is a thriller set in an alternate America both familiar and unfamiliar—a darkening society in which ordinary, honest citizens fear their own government. Six recipients of Extraordinary Designation Cards (i.e., Red Cards) are hiding on an abandoned northern Michigan movie set, seeking to escape the authorities who intend their demise. An Academy Award–winning screenwriter discovers these fugitives by accident, and soon so does the government, setting in motion a deadly cat-and-mouse game.
Seeing Red takes us from the forests of Michigan to Hollywood and back again, through a world of celebrities, outcasts, and sinister figures lurking in the shadows. T.M. Doran presents a timely and gripping story in an era when the sick and disabled, and those trying to care for them, are deprived of their human rights.
"Doran's novel is darkly—and consistently—funny. A sort of Orwellian fiction noir set in Detroit. The ideas at the heart of this page-turner are dead serious; and I mean that literally."
— Augustine Wetta, O.S.B., Author, Humility Rules, Pray. Think. Act., and The Eighth Arrow
"A sharply written novel, shimmering with mystery and edged with redemption."
— Peco Gaskovski, Author, Exogenesis
"Reminiscent of Fahrenheit 451 and Twilight Zone, where comfortable facades of day-to-day routine are ripped apart to reveal disquieting realities from which we'd rather squirm away."
— David Pinault, Author, Providence Blue: A Fantasy Quest
