Book Description

What if destiny set an unexpected path and everything changed?
And when the truth finally emerges, Angel's life will be forever transformed.
Angel is gutsy, clever, and as a journalist, she's never afraid to break a controversial story. How was she to know her life will hit a wall and take a sharp left turn.
What will she do when she discovers her life was planned from the beginning? How will she handle being suddenly thrust into the intelligence community, then learns of a secret project, and an ASIO mission to destroy it? Will she do more harm than good? Or will she manage to stop the unimaginable?
Located in the heart of the Australia, Project Amber must be destroyed, before the inconceivable consequences of MILESTONE becomes reality.
Project Amber follows Angel as she struggles to come to terms with her inner most demons, at the same time fighting to save humanity from what was once thought of as impossible.
Set in the Australian outback, the Simpson Desert, Pine Gap, Nurrungar, Alice Springs, Darwin, Adelaide and Melbourne.
Carl Lakeland lives with his wife in the sleepy town of Snake Valley, 36 kilometres south west of Ballarat in Australia.
Lakeland grew up during the early seventies western suburbs of Sydney. Having enlisted into the military at the age of seventeen, he draws on his experience to create powerful and engaging speculative fiction.

“Sometimes, I can’t let things be,” says Lakeland. “I write stories with passion that others might see as being obsessive. I live and breathe it. I dream it when I sleep. But I never write down my dreams. If I can’t remember those things I’ve dreamt, they’re not important enough.”

Carl Lakeland’s stories revolve around the element of ‘what if?’ He pushes the boundaries of his stories to the edge of the Official Secrets Act, which will have the reader wondering about the aspect of creative licence, or the possibility of fact in his writing. Either way, the reader will be left to make up their own mind. His books are fast paced, edge of your seat thrillers which are distinctively written in a way that will have the reader guessing which way the story is about to head.
“As a writer, unpredictability is key essence. If I write something that can be foreseen in coming chapters, it’s not good enough. I will scrap it. My goal is to keep the reader wondering, even sometimes to the detriment of my good guys!”

"intelligently plotted, brilliantly imagined"

Project Amber: The Milestone Incident by Carl Lakeland is a powerful thriller that melds the elements of suspense and crime fiction to give readers a tremendous ride. Meet Angel, a clever and unflinching journalist who would do anything to get a good story out. Her work is very satisfactory and she enjoys the limelight into which it thrusts her, but things aren’t going to be the way they have always been. She suddenly discovers a very sinister plan, a secret buried in the heart of Australia, and the world could be about to be hit by its consequences. What is more alarming is that Angel’s life has been planned and manipulated without her being aware of it. Does she have what it takes to face the truth and fight the evil that could destroy the world as she knows it? Carl Lakeland takes readers across beautiful landscapes and well-documented Australian settings to follow the story of a compelling woman poised against a complex and powerful enemy. I enjoyed the plot and the surprises that are reserved for readers. It isn’t difficult to develop a great liking for the protagonist — she is strong, real, and genuinely flawed — and the internal conflict she experiences is overwhelming. There were moments I felt pain for her, moments I literally got worried that something awful could happen to her, and this feeling accompanied a great portion of my reading experience. Project Amber: The Milestone Incident is intelligently plotted, brilliantly imagined with compelling characters, and executed to a great and triumphant finish. You can’t stop reading until the very last page.
