Daniel P Douglas's Truth Insurrected" The Saint Mary Project is less a science fiction tale and more a detective / mystery involving an ongoing government black operation concerning aliens and their technology. Unfortunately, rather than focus on the alien aspects, the story is mostly about an ever expanding government coverup trying to keep everything secret, while an internal leaker is feeding clues to a private investigator in an attempt to expose the sordid tale.
The sci-fi elements are minimal with a weaving in of the Roswell UFO sightings as the start of periodic visitations. Supposedly, while the government was denying the stories, they were busily exploiting the alien technology in anticipation of a future invasion, but there's little to show for that effort. There are also human alien hybrids with resulting psychic powers. Sadly, little on this side is revealed in sufficient detail to create a plausible origin grounding. Instead, the ever increasing need for secrecy leads to murdering anyone including Kennedy, who gets any inkling of activities. Overall, while a respectable detective tale, the feel of the story is more along the lines of made for TV movie with little depth in plot or characters, "bad" guys who seem to know everything, and supporting "good" guys who have no idea what is going on.
The narration is quite well done with an excellent range of voices and solid pacing.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
The ending is notable being arbitrary, incomplete and almost trite. The book fairly rocks along ( and it is a rather long book, so get ready ) but boy, the ending is weak.
If you’ve listened to books by Daniel P. Douglas before, how does this one compare?
No, so no comparisons available.
What does Jim Morris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The characters are breathing creations. Morris does excellent work here, and is the highlight of this offering.
Was Truth Insurrected worth the listening time?
Aside from the ending, yes.
Any additional comments?
This is a sprawling audiobook, with a wide variety of characters, plotlines and concepts. It all stumbles to what I felt was a rushed ending, but on balance, this offering is still worth the investment.
