Intelligence and behavior science expert, Chase Hughes, launches debut thriller

San Francisco, Sep 1, 2020 ( - A retired U.S. military leader and "mind control" expert releases this year's chilling thriller about a mind control plague.

After publishing two bestselling books on tactical behavior skills, author Chase Hughes recently released his stunning debut novel, Phrase Seven. Hughes, an intelligence and behavior science expert, was inspired to write Phrase Seven after a 20-year career in the U.S. military. He began to wonder how ordinary people would react to a group capable of using advanced "human hacking" techniques. Hughes hopes to demonstrate that the difference between a tool for the betterment of society and a weapon meant to destroy it, is nothing more than intent.

Phrase Seven follows extreme persuasion expert Pierce Reston and newbie Kelly Kennedy as they investigate dozens of odd reports coming in from across the country: People experiencing "missing time," women vanishing in Prague, and a nationwide outbreak of amnesia. When Pierce discovers that someone is using a secret key that causes a complete loss of free will and can even force people to commit suicide, he realizes that the world could be facing a psychological pandemic.

Little does Pierce know that the truth is far more insidious. Not only does the secret key allow the wielder to influence minds, but it has also gone viral after being released via a major social media network. When Pierce and Kelly uncover a neuroscience laboratory with horrifying implications, they fight to identify the mysterious figure known only as Aphid before time runs out. And their target is watching.

Reviewers praise Hughes for his meticulous attention to detail, describing Phrase Seven as "fascinating" and "compelling." Early readers recall that Hughes's work challenged their ideas about psychology and social engineering as they followed Pierce and Kelly's hunt for the dark truth. It's clear from Phrase Seven's five-star record that Hughes has a unique ability to weave together fiction and his personal expertise to craft a masterful, engaging thriller. We can only hope it's all fiction.

Chase Hughes is a leading behavior expert in the United States and author of the worldwide #1 bestselling book on advanced persuasion, influence, and behavior profiling. Phrase Seven is his first novel. Hughes can be found online at or on Twitter @thechasehughes.

Phrase Seven is available for purchase through standard retailers like Amazon, Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound or

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Oct 31, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Oct 31, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Oct 31, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Oct 31, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
