A damsel in distress. A dangerous dame. A metric-ton of coffee...

Private Investigator Frank Harken's worldwide fame has only made him more cynical. And living in a giant mall covering the entire USA only serves to drive him nuts on a daily basis. So when a femme fatale barges in asking Harken to track down her sister, he knows when he's heard an offer too good to be true.

Puzzled by the sudden arrival of Arjay, a sentient coffee-making robot he never ordered, Frank shrugs and rolls with the caffeinated punches. But as the intrepid duo dig deeper into the missing dame's disappearance, they uncover a deadly plot that could take down the best part of a society gone bananas...

Can the world-weary PI and his barista-bot foil the dastardly scheme to rob Americans of their entertainment?

The Great American Deception is a sci-fi comedy satire. If you like quirky characters, cultural mashups, and original wordplay, then you'll love Scott Stein's futuristic send-up.
