    Cyber-thriller -- it's a thrill of a read!!

    Debut author Kirk Outerbridge has crafted a series that combines a rugged (and reluctant) hero with counter-terrorism, bioelectronics, and medical ethics. The futuristic scenario is edgy -- but it is an well-written adult science fiction read. In Eternity Falls, Rick Macey is a former government agent, specializing in religious counter-terrorism. He is asked to investigate the death of a movie star, who's a spokesman for "the miracle treatment," an anti-aging elixir. A beautiful executive is convinced it was not a natural death. Rick doesn't want to take the case. He doesn't agree with the treatment. He knows living beyond a normal lifespan has its problems. After all, he is a cyborg. When an important clue points to an former comrade, he finally takes the case. Sheila and Rick are attracted to each other despite their differences. This story takes place in a society obsessed with staying young - eternally. (excerpt taken from my review in Christian Library Journal, Feb. 2011)

    An action-packed, cyberpunk mystery

    Rick Macey is a decorated war veteran. He works as a freelance private investigator now, solving the crimes he wants to solve. And he is not a man to mess with.

    He takes a job to find out what really happened to actress Greta Darling. Greta is dead, but she was a client of the Miracle Treatment, a product that offers everlasting youth to those who can afford it. Does the Miracle Treatment have a flaw or are religious fanatics trying to sabotage the product that offers eternal life? Macey is on the case and he won't stop until he knows the truth.

    What a cool book! I've never read any cyberpunk, but I could defiantly read more, especially from Kirk Outerbridge. This story was an action-packed mystery. I liked Macey's tough-guy character. Kirk created a fascinating future Los Angeles with all kinds of cool high-tech toys. The story had a compelling plot that kept me turning the pages and made me thing. Well done!

    Eternal life?

    From the very first page, you know that Rick Macey is no one to mess with. A private investigator with a military and anti-terrorism background, he always gets his man. And now he must use every bit of that background to help him track down the truth. You see, there is a drug that lets you live forever. But a rich customer has died - a supposed impossibility. The startling revelations keep coming until the read - and Macey, for that matter - no longer know whom they can trust.
    Kirk Outerbridge's debut novel is a rock-and-roll ride full of action, mystery and suspense. It is also a thoughtful look at whether living forever on this Earth is something we should yearn for or avoid at all costs.
    Hats off to Outerbridge for a fascinating book, and here's hoping more adventures of Rick Macey are forthcoming.

    I Also Recommend:

    Cybernetically enhanced and thoughtful fun.

    First off, don't let all the talk about cyber-this or techno-that fool you (or scare you off.) Eternity Fallls is primarily a mystery/action/adventure novel wrapped in the guise of hi-tech. Here the "cyber" and the gadgets are similar to those used in Chris Nolan's Batman movies-extra sauce atop an otherwise thoughtful and satisfying story.

    There are some fascinating questions being asked here: What if we could stave off death indefinitely? How would that change the way we see our world and others? Affect our view of eternity and the divine?

    Aside from all that though, the book is heavy on fun factor. And surprises! Altogether it makes for an interesting and enjoyable read. Well done, Mr. Outerbridge!

    Believable Sci-fi

    Intense, riveting, and fast paced. I was breathless by the end of the first chapter, needed to sit back and draw a breath before continuing. I felt that way several times during the book. The author has a great gift of putting the reader right in the middle of the action and doesn't give much away until necessary. The ideas of how religion fails to thrive in the future through governmental processes and lack of personal day-to-day involvement in faith is extrapolated from today's trends and makes perfect sense in the story. Rick Macey's doubt in his faith and his client's disbelief in God although posited in the future are definitely a timeless conflict that the author has used to great advantage. Very well written.
