WHEN THE OCEANS RISE...THE TRUTH DROWNS


It's the year 2031. Our future. Their present. A world decimated by climate catastrophe, where the sun's heat is deadly and the ocean rises higher every day. A world ruled by the rich, powerful, and corrupt. A world where a good man can't survive for long.

Hogan Duran was a good man once. He was a cop, forced to resign in disgrace when he couldn't save his partner from a bullet. Now Hogan lives on the fraying edges of society, serving cruel masters and scavenging trash dumps just to survive.

But after four years of living in poverty, Hogan finally gets a chance to get back on his feet. He's invited to join the National Security Council, the powerful paramilitary organization responsible for protecting the rich and powerful from the more unsavory elements of society. All he needs to do is pass their deadly entrance exam, and he'll be rewarded with wealth and opportunity beyond his wildest dreams.

But this ex-cop's path to redemption won't be easy. The NSC are hiding something, and as Hogan descends deeper and deeper into their world, he starts to uncover the terrible truth of how the powerful in this new world maintain their power...and just how far they will go to protect their secrets.

In a world gone wrong, can one man actually make a difference, or will he die trying?

The novel revolves around the lead character Hogan Duran who was once a cop, now leads a life of poverty with his fellow ex-cop when he failed the save his colleague from a bullet. The novel is depicted from a futuristic set up where the rich controls the poor in stealth mode and mother nature is abused. ( can relate much? ) This book has a bit of a Black Mirror-ish vibe that gives you goosebumps. Clive describes how the lead goes on about his life as a poor man looking for work on a day to day basis forgoing all sense of dignity of labor and barely managing to support himself and his gambling friend that he failed to rescue. But as the story goes on, new events begin to unravel in ways that you could not have imagined or even expect. Clive goes on to show how powerful and sadistic the men with the money are and to what extent they would go to make sure that the rich remain rich and the poor remain poor. The some new unfamiliar characters unfold and drive new problems into Hogan's life. When the opportunity to regain his life in the form of NSC, new truths are presented to him and choosing to do the right thing might be the toughest choice to make. Clive has done a commendable job in having his readers engaged till the end. The book has truly been a page turner with new events unfolding at every other moment. The emotions and the struggles Hogan must be going through has been described in a very raw fashion that is very relate-able. Clive has managed to draw a very vivid picture of how our world would look in the future by linking it back to the current events that we over see due to our own ignorance and how the greedy will not miss out an opportunity as basic as this. His book is a melting pot covering various topics that induces spasms of guilt feelings in your gut. With a philosophical view I can see how hard it could be to choose the right option over the easier option the more comfortable one might be so tough and hard but would ultimately lead to the greater good. He points out how the destruction of evil is important, however powerful it is! I cannot see how this book could have been written in another other fashion or in any other better approach.

Clive Fleury’s new book Kill Code: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel, is a real page-turner that would be equally at home on the big screen. The reader gains a real sense of who the characters are, and the plot moves along at a very brisk pace, never allowing the reader to get caught up in unnecessary detail or long tedious explanations. Although there were some interesting plot twists, much of the territory seems to be quite familiar and reading the story is like meeting up with an old friend. For an entertaining and enjoyable read suitable for young adult and older readers, Kill Code will fit the bill and won’t disappoint. This is a review based on an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

When I was reading this novel, I could sense a slight resemblance of few Hollywood movies (which I do not want to name) with this story line. However, I can very well say that this novel offered a complete different approach in the end. Initially, I thought that I could tell you the story in just two lines but the sudden turn in the events during the midway of the story made it a unique one. The story is set in the future. The story revolves around Hogan Duran, Ruby Mason, Jake Teerman, Max, Beecham, Jerry Anderson, Gen Stoker, Sandman(I guess I covered almost all the characters here). During this time, only the rich could afford good food and other facilities. There was this faction called Krails who had been a constant threat to the law and order of the region. However, their threats were nullified by NSC(National Security Council). Hogan, who has served in the army earlier and also as a cop had to resign from his job but that did not deter his ambition to apply for a job in NSC. He along with other candidates like Ruby and Jake had to go through various vigorous tests for the selection. Who among these had made it to the list? What was their profile? What did NSC do, in general or otherwise? Where did they get their funding from? Who were these so called Krails and why were they on loggerheads with NSC? Read this novel which promises you of unexpected twists in the tale coupled with rage,anger,treachery,conspiracy which has been blended on a right proportion coupled with science fiction element added to it. This makes this novel, a compelling read.

In a world hit hard by climate change, ex-cop Hogan Duran is haunted by a past failure that put his fellow cop in a wheel chair. When an opportunity of a lifetime comes his way, Hogan is able to participate in the ruthless trials of the established National Security Council (NSC), that holds society together from total collapse and protects the public from a criminal organisation called "Krails". Finally, a novel with a snapshot of a world not too far from now with likely grounding derived from the changes that the current climate issue may bring. Because of this I felt the world building was successfully grounded in realism. Fast paced and action packed, with surprising revelations that will make you consider the parallels between modern day society. I found this book to be an easy read for young adults but I think all ages will enjoy this novel. If you have enjoyed books like "Maze Runner" I believe this will be another entertaining read!
