Los Angeles, 2041
Derma ads have replaced tattoos; the Nike Swoosh is projected onto the full moon, and digital sponsor logos run along the side of every police sedan. But the city is under siege from a gang war which has flooded the streets with green ice, a drug more powerful and deadly than fentanyl. And there's a new plague. A virulent new strain of Alzheimer's, dubbed Alz-X, is spreading like wildfire. And unlike Covid-19, it attacks teens, not the old. No one knows why.
Enter Eddie Piedmont, the youngest Homicide Special detective in LAPD history, who has a lot to prove. Growing up with an abusive green ice junkie for a father, Eddie is determined to show he is nothing like his old man who was kicked off the force years ago. When Eddie investigates the suspicious overdose of a stripper, he's drawn into the nefarious world of cutting-edge reproductive technology, only to discover terrible secrets that pull him much closer to the murderer than he could ever have imagined.
Part noir science-fiction, part twisted new-take on Greek myth, GENESYS X is a page-turning police procedural featuring a haunted and unforgettable detective.
Officially out 11/10/2020.. Available for order now at Fairwood Press, Amazon, B&N and an Independent Bookstore near you.

RE: my story Sandman in CROSSING BORDERS:
They say you should never meet your heroes. But when you’re a cop, it isn’t always your call. Detectives Eddie Piedmont and Shin Miyaguchi work Homicide Special, a select unit in the LAPD that handles only the most complex, brutal and high-profile murders. When they get the call about the body on the beach that morning in 2041, they knew it was bad. But when the body is Hollywood’s biggest action star, bad is just the starting gate.
