Inhaltsangabe: It's New Years Eve in Times Square when Alex Marshall suddenly finds himself alone. He's the only one of millions gathered there who is moving; the rest of whom are all in some kind of trance. Shortly he is found by the Underground Society who removes him from New York and takes him to their base in North Carolina. In the next couple of hours he discovers that the world he thought he was living in is a deception. Who really is controlling the world?

Alex, a history professor, discovers that another world war is soon approaching. Working with his friends; Steve Jenson, a former Navy Seal; Neil Murray, a computer hacker and Melissa Kimble, an electronics engineer, he fights against time to discover the true nature of the LORDs who rule the world and prevent the deaths of another billion people--including themselves.

"They're the true embodiment of evil itself--as vicious and obvious as hydras if they have a knife in your back, as desperate and pathetically cowardly when they're cornered, and as friendly as anybody you would ever meet face to face, when they think you have power over them. Many of them are very intelligent and exceedingly clever and cunning in their own fashion. They're masterful liars, totally without peer or conscience. They're completely ruthless when it comes to executing their designs, as well as incredibly patient and intelligent in waiting for and recognizing the right time to make their strike."

Based on the biblical story about The Tower of Babel this is a George Orwell style high tech science fiction/technothriller about dystopian mind control.

From the Author: If I were to answer the question, "What is this book like?" I would say it's a mix of "1984" and "The Matrix." In other words, it's almost like the world of today, except with a science fiction explanation for the irrationally out of control governments.

As far as dystopian novels go, it's less like Suzanne Collins and more like George Orwell. I wouldn't compare myself too much to George Orwell, the father of dystopian literature, very much otherwise but the idea of a super controlled society inspired me. In this book I gave it a little bit more of a technothriller/high tech science fiction edge than "1984."

Like George Orwell, I also write from a certain political orientation. I believe intensely in the freedoms I believe mankind is supposed to have. In that respect this book may seem somewhat controversial or maybe even a bit political. However I didn't write it as a political statement. I wrote it as a science fiction novel. It's likely that if the reader doesn't pay a lot of attention to that sort of thing, they won't notice the political angle much. Nonetheless, people who dislike big government seem to pretty generally love it. Liberals, not so much.

It has also been compared more than once to the writings of Ayn Rand, "Anthem," I'd suspect, over "Atlas Shrugged." Not that I agree with her on everything she ever said but some of her ideas about freedom and economics are pretty spot on. If you are a fan of individual freedom within a group of people fighting vicious tyrants to overcome impossible odds then you would likely enjoy this read.

The title "Lucifer's Pocket" is basically a creative way to describe the deception required to remove freedom from a society. I think this excerpt describes it best:

"Someone who wants to take your rights away isn't going to just come right out and say 'Hey! Here I am to impose a life of slavery on you! Line up for your shackles; get them while they're hot!' They're going to try and trick you into selling your freedom for some kind of benefit. Lucifer's art is deception. Lucifer's only real power comes from deceit. 'She was practiced at the art of deception, I could tell by her bloodstained hands,' just as the Stones said. When you're deceived, you fall directly into it ... directly into Lucifer's Pocket."
