Overview

JPEG by Patrick McLaughlin, Ó Braonáin Greg

Professional surf photographer Shawn Pérez, on assignment for Deep Surf Apparel to a remote Pacific island, encounters an isolated tribe. When he naturally snaps a photo of their spiritual leader, their reaction is life-threatening and gives Shawn something to think about after his guide tells him, “Shawn, they think your pictures steal men’s souls.”

Years later, Dr. Sally Evans, Shawn’s ex-girlfriend and a research scientist at Photon Corporation, develops the Sentient camera for the Defense Intelligence Agency for purposes of positively identifying terrorists from high above with drone aircraft. Dr. Evans lends Shawn one of the Sentient prototypes hoping he can refine the technology from a photographer’s perspective.

Major Thomas Craig, a U.S. government operator or assassin, is assigned to work beside Dr. Evans to develop the Sentient. Craig knows the whereabouts of the world’s most dangerous terrorists and must use the Sentient’s full potential to avoid a horrific terrorist strike.

Meanwhile, Shawn uses the Sentient to photograph Drake Powers, the world’s #1 surfer and Shawn’s best friend, as Drake attempts an impossible maneuver at a big wave event. Drake falls short and Shawn’s life is suddenly thrown into uncertainty. When faced with the resulting dilemma, Shawn learns the true potential of the Sentient and powers locked within.

As Major Craig’s mission deteriorates and his options disappear, both Craig and a Yemeni sleeper cell decide Shawn’s discovery is what they need to deliver the final blow to their adversaries. Bas the scientists fail, why is Shawn the only one who can make the process work?

Shawn Pérez is thrust into the worlds of quantum physics, spies, and terrorists while the odds become stacked against him as he tries to save his friend while avoiding powerful forces who want to obtain the technology.

JPEG will make you think twice before you take another cell phone photo or delete an image of a loved one. You will find yourself wondering if what we experience as our reality is only a mirage — a virtual world we live in.

A cat stood in front of a small garden in the very back of an alleyway, his mate standing next to him. <br>"Pebbleleaf, I'm sorry, but this is the closest thing we can get to the forest in this, this Twoleg wasteland..." The tom's voice trailed off. <br>"It's okay, Badgerstar, it's okay. Just... try to get some rest. There's some herbs here, and a source of water. We may have to live off of snails and rats, but we can't go back. Not when MaskedClan is in the forest. But you already know that," Pebbleleaf replied. Badgerstar sighed, and drank out of a pond within the garden. <br>"I...I just don't know what to do. It's too dangerous if we leave, but the kits... they can't live here, they-" Badgerstar stopped talking, and curled up next to some purple and pink flowers. <br>"There are some friendly dogs nearby, they don't like MaskedClan either... who knows, maybe they could help us!" Pebbleleaf meowed, a glimmer of hope in her voice. <br>"Maybe..." Badgerstar mewed as he fell asleep in a patch of lettuce. <br>TO BE CONTINUED
