INSTALLED INTELLIGENCE

INSTALLED

Dr. Karl Terrace has been framed for a deadly terror attack. It’s up to him - and the dead man in his brain - to prove his innocence.

 

Karl is the perfect scapegoat. No family, no friends - and a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time. That was true when he was selected to be the first man to share his mind with an installed intelligence - a groundbreaking procedure. But when he’s framed for a devastating massacre, it’s time for Karl to decide what’s worth living for… and what’s worth dying for.

 

With the help of Maynard Batiste, the eccentric genius installed onto his brain, Karl must uncover the truth and expose a traitor. Failure doesn’t just mean paying for the crimes of another… it could spell extinction for an entire race.

Can Karl and Maynard outrace a conspiracy? Or will the truth be hidden forever?

CORRUPTED

One corpse - two victims. It's a typical case - at least, that's what Detective Beth Dylan thought.

Beth Dylan is a fly caught in a dark web of lies and deception. The only question is which spider is moving in to eat her first. Despite being deafened and blinded by a terrible childhood illness, Beth worked hard to become one of the city’s best detectives. Maybe that’s why she’s become a person of interest to a wanted murderer, a radical militant group, and a mysterious A.I.

At the height of tension between humans and installed intelligences, the nation's most notorious terrorist reaches out to Beth. He says he knows where to find the killer she's looking for - but he wants something in return.

Can Beth tell the difference between friend and foe and discover the truth? Or will the dark forces behind a terrible secret get to her first?

DELETED

Humans weren’t the only ones to lose the Great War.

The simulation is all Ethan Myler has ever known. Day in and day out, he plays games with his friends and learns about the perfect world outside. Little does he know that a sinister Council of installed intelligences is raising him for his body. Escape is the only option.

Human Liaison Officer Tera Alvarez is tasked with policing the downtrodden humans who live in the ghettos of Shell City. The slum dwellers hate her — she can see it in their faces. But after a case of mistaken identity, it’s starting to become clear: she’s on the wrong side of a war growing just beneath the city’s surface.

Can Ethan and Tera overcome their upbringings to fight for what they believe in? Or will they fall victim to the Council like so many before them?

OTHER NOVELS

TIMEGLASS

Kaira can stop time with the simple squeeze of a stone. With that kind of power, there is nothing she can’t do.

She and her brother belong to the lowest class of villagers in Hope, a lush oasis in the middle of a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The town is led by the Prophet, a mysterious tyrant who provides shelter from the horrors outside in exchange for total obedience. With the help of the “Divine Being”, the Prophet is able to see the future; that’s how he predicted the end of the world.

There’s something the Prophet is hiding, however. With the power of the timeglass, Kaira and her best friend Alethea can expose the leader for the tyrant he is.
