5/22 thru 5/28

“M.T. Bass kept me on edge the entire way. I can’t compare it to anything else.”— Frank Frission Reviews


A Cyber Crime Thriller Series: Notorious serial killers digitally resurrected to live & hunt again in hacked replicants, pursued by detectives of the Artificial Crimes Unit.

After Jake shoots and kills a murder suspect who turns out to be the son of a powerful city councilman, he finds himself demoted to the Artificial Crimes Unit, tracking down androids hacked and programmed to be hitmen.

When his case of an “extra-judicial” divorce settlement takes a nasty turn with DNA from a hundred-year-old murder in Boston and a signature that harkens back to the very first serial killer ever in London, Jake finds himself tangled up in the brutal slayings of prostitutes being investigated by his former Robbery/Homicide partner, Maddie–who is now his lover.

But a madman, The Baron, is just getting started with his AI recreations of Jack the Ripper’s brutal crimes. And Maddie and Jake are teamed up again to stop the carnage as the Baron’s army of human replicants imitates history’s most notorious serial killers.

“It might not make sense, but the beloved Media tags it ‘Murder by Munchausen.’ For a price, there are hackers out there who will reprogram a synthoid to do your dirty work. The bad news: no fingerprints or DNA left at the crime scene. The good news—at least for us—is that they’re like missiles: once they hit their target, they’re usually as harmless as empty brass. The trick is to get them before they melt down their core OS data, so you can get the unit into forensics for analysis and, hopefully, an arrest.” [excerpt from Murder by Munchausen]

May 16 through May 20

Am I the only one bothered that our children are penned up and medicated, but chickens, cows, and pigs need to be “free range” and drug free?

At District High School #6241, Connor wants only to get close to Liz, the cheerleader whose locker is just across the hall, and forget the suicide of his father in jail, but his family’s dark past and a rebellious nature force him to the fringes of student social circles and into an unlikely alliance to fight back against a tyranny of conformity.

In the Black is Ayn Rand on drugs”

~John Galt

If ever a period in American history deserved the Catch-22 treatment, it is the decade you either love to hate or hate to love:

  • Sex, Drugs, & Rock ‘n Roll
  • A Man on the Moon
  • A Summer of Love
  • The Smell of Napalm in the Morning
  • The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test
  • The FBI vs. The SDS
  • Woodstock vs. Altamont
  • Hippies vs. the Silent Majority
  • Fathers vs. Sons

With cameos by Bill Clinton, Neil Armstrong, Richard Nixon, J. Edgar Hoover, and Charles Manson.
