“A spellbinding, international cloak-and-dagger thriller . . . Visionary!”
New York Times investigative reporter Maggie Seline disappears suddenly after uncovering a radical energy scheme that threatens the oil industry. A clandestine underground society based in Rome, Propaganda Due, is at the heart of the sinister plot which leads to an unlikely door — the president of the European Commission.
Forced into hiding, Seline secretly teams up with history scholar and writer, Michael Sonada, and the two track clues which ultimately lead to a powerful ancient blueprint, one tied to a global energy conspiracy. Their discovery catapults them on a dangerous, heart-pounding adventure to unravel the mysterious code, all the while dodging P2’s malicious assaults. As Seline and Sonada race to thwart the ominous plan, their journey drives them into the forbidden regions of Nepal to make an earth-shattering discovery.
PURE VISION forges ancient myths and contemporary challenges in this provocative and thrilling epic adventure. At every turn, Perri Birney’s intriguing scenario encourages a closer look at the spiritual forces that infuse the world’s political battles.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Writing an adventure thriller means you need to keep your characters on the move. In PURE VISION, Maggie Seline and Michael Sonada start in New York and find themselves racing through intriguing locales such as India and Nepal. Eventually, the story moves into Egypt as well as Jordan. So you have to keep your pacing in mind, be as descriptive as possible, and keep readers on their toes.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Never give up! Those words of wisdom will keep you moving through your writer’s blocks and your rewrites and edits. They will also remind you to believe in yourself even when critics might be encouraging you to throw in the towel.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I think when you feel inspired as a writer you really want share the ideas that are coming to you — not in some kind of simplistic way, but in a way that lights a fire under people. One of the main themes of PURE VISION is finding out what’s beneath the surface, what kinds of forces are motivating not only people but entire governments.
It was also important for me to produce a female protagonist that can handle an Indiana Jones dilemma in her own style but with just as much punch. I think the character of Maggie Seline does that.
