Introducing Future City Blues - a collection of three tech noir tales, coming soon.
Meet Charlie Madison, hard-boiled private eye with a heart of gold, a champion of lost causes in a city controlled by a ruthless kingpin; Simms, a Genehunter paid to track down the DNA of the famous and infamous of history for his clients' private collections and Harry Allwear, specialist tracker working for an international organisation dedicated to wiping out the Tripler menace.
Contains the following three stories:
Doppelganger's Curse by Milo James Fowler
A woman stalked by her double. A detective in over his head.
In a city where the cops are on a mobster's payroll, private investigator Charlie Madison stands in the gap. When a wealthy young socialite asks him to help her catch a threatening stalker, he takes the case. But things aren't what they seem, and Madison has to act fast before he's framed for murder.
The Wrong Tom Jacks by Simon Kewin
Simms is employed to locate the genetic code of Tom Jacks. But not the rock star Tom Jacks, just an unknown namesake.
The job bugs Simms. Something about it is wrong. Someone is playing him. Problem is he doesn't know who or why. None of the illegal plug-in tech filling his brain is much damn use. And the one person who can help him is also the one person on the planet who never wants to speak to him again...
Tripler: The Beginning by Neil Vogler
In the near future an impossible virus is giving people the ability to summon two identical physical copies of themselves into existence at any time and in any situation – sending them violently insane as a side-effect. They call the infected 'Triplers'.
Harry Allwear is a specialist tracker, an experienced, highly-trained operative working for an international organisation dedicated to wiping out the Tripler menace. But after his latest mission goes badly wrong and a dangerous target gets the better of him, Harry regains consciousness to find his worst fear realised: he's been deliberately infected with the virus...
