In 2065, corporate sponsored governments jockey for supremacy in the biotechnical arena. Bullets and missiles take a back seat to cyber-enhanced soldiers and pulse weapons. In this extreme environment, only the most hardened body and mind can survive.
Calder McKenna was a failed experiment in the military's push for power. Now a special agent for the metro task force, he lives day by day trying to forget the ones that were lost... the ones that he could have saved.
When technology and humanity collide, Calder is forced to make desperate decisions, but how do you destroy the monster without becoming one yourself?
About the Author
My love for sci-fi goes way back to my childhood. I mean, who didn’t love movies like Tron and Terminator when they were a kid? Or great oldies like WarGames? I grew up in the advent of technology and rode the wave of the dot com lifestyle in my 20s. It was a wonderful time to be alive, to see where tech could go. Being involved in the field as a database admin and then later as a hardware tech and web designer, I had my fingers in all of it and I loved what it was all about.
In college, I was a true cyberpunk and gloried over works by Gibson and Dick. I reveled in the hackers manifesto like a warrior and actually prayed for a world like BladeRunner. They were very cool, hyper-energized times we were in and it gave me scores of ideas and hands-on experience to dump into my work.
Now, years later, I am still amazed at what technology and science have continued to churn out. Dystopian worlds are not far off, and with my techie past, I have more than enough ammo in my brainpan to fill many more books. And many more shelves.

I received a free copy for a fair and honest review. This book was hard for me. Very hard for a few reasons. One of them being the abuse part. Actually the biggest one is the abuse part. Been there. Done that. PTSD as a consolation prize. And this book just emotionally wrecked me because of that and the rest of the stuff in the book. This book reminds me a lot of Deus Ex: Icarus Effect/Human Revolution (as one of my best friends pointed out when I was telling him about it...and by reminds me I mean reminds me of listening to him talk about playing it because it's not my kind of game overall). And that's not a bad thing. Heck, if it influenced the book at all, I think that's freaking awesome. But I'm also a huge geek/nerd and love references to other things in books.
