Entertaining Stories

Lisa Burton

Welcome all you hackers and programmers, and all the artificial intelligence listening in today. This is Lisa Burton Radio, and I’m your host, Lisa the robot girl. I’m pretty excited about this interview, because my special guest today is a police consultant working in the Counter IT section of the Artificial Crimes Unit. “Welcome to the show, someone who only goes by the name of Q.”

“First off, I just have to say, this really isn’t my kind of gig—I mean, it’s good to meet you, definitely, but when you work and play in the shadows, the spotlight tends not to be your friend. I guess, when you’re doing penance, though, you do what you gotta do. So, here I am.”

“It all sounds pretty covert to me. I’ve never known a cop who had a code name.”

“I’m not really a cop, per se. Now, the Department does sign…

Book Review: The Invisible Mind

The Invisible Mind (Murder by Munchausen #3)

By M.T. Bass

Genre: Sci Fi, TechnoThriller, Police Procedural

A police procedural sci fi thriller ripped from future headlines!

Now unleashed, the “Baron” is resurrecting history’s notorious serial killers, giving them a second life in the bodies of hacked and reprogrammed Personal Assistant Androids, then turning them loose to terrorize the city. While detectives Jake and Maddie of the police department’s Artificial Crimes Unit scramble to stop the carnage with the Baron’s arrest, the cyberpunk head of the Counter IT Section, Q, struggles to de-encrypt his mad scheme to infect world data centers with a virus that represents a collective cyber unconsciousness of evil.

“…he intends only his own gain, and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention.”

                                                                          ~Adam Smith, 1776

FF’s Star Rating: ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

I began The Invisible Mind the third book in M.T. Bass’s Murder by Manchausen Mysteries, with a beating heart drowned in a tornado of conflicting emotions. It is mostly as a result of the events that transpired in the last pages of The Darknet, the second book in this futuristic technothriller mystery series that ends on notes that leave readers itching to find out what happens next. Jake, the Geek Squad cop and former partner of Maddie, a homicide detective, is in a coma where he remains among the living due to machines.

The patient lying next to a comatose Jake dies. Amy, a little girl, is shackled to a metal bed frame somewhere. Sitting with Maddie in a deli, Jake’s partner EC gets a call from a fellow Geek Squad member called Q. Jake, meanwhile, drifts through his own…

Review: The Darknet by M.T. Bass

FF’s Star Rating: ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

The Darknet by M.T. Bass is the second book in the Murder by Munchausen Mysteries series, offering readers of the very first book a brand new outlook on Bass’s futuristic synthetic humanoid filled world. A world in which people can murder other people by getting a reprogrammer to get an android to do the deed. In the first book, the first person narrator was Jake of the malfunctioning android hunting Geek Squad. His former Robbery/Homicide detective partner, the attractive Maddie, takes over the wheel here.

The Baron is still at large and he is hidden somewhere in what is called the Darknet. Much to her dismay, Maddie is partners once again with Jake since the killer killing her victims might be one and the same. The victims that turn up seem to be replicas to victims murdered a long time ago. As…

It’s a shame, really. The world we live in. No, not the world, but the people who live in it. Some of them, you know – let’s be frank – you wouldn’t mind taking out. And by taking out I do mean kill. Perhaps if you had a lot of money you’d hire a professional assassin to take care of the people who cause you grief. That’s, if you were serious enough, what you’d do in this world and in this time. But what if you existed in another time? A time like that which is found in M.T. Bass’s Murder by Munchausen? In this futuristic murder mystery thriller that is the first of an entire series, you’d not hire some assassin to get rid of that foe of yours. No, there is another, much more cleaner way to get the job…
