Book Cover

SCI-FI SUSPENSE / THRILLER EPIC FANTASY MYSTERY

The Future

Mark T. Bacome

Logline

The human race has been free from violence for over ten thousand years. The gene that was thought to have caused such behavior has been engineered into extinction. Every record of the game and the violent behavior it caused has been censored and locked away. Possession of any data of that period in history is deemed illegal and the consequences extreme. Kutch has acquired some of those data files while infiltrating the databases of his employer known only as Corporate, the sole owner of most of the mapped galaxy. The ancient data was so unbelievable that he filed it away as nonsense. But while on the job as Coroner, he found himself staring at a dead man that could only be explained within the context of that illicit information--murder. Reporting the death of the unknown victim as anything other than normal to Corporate Security would only incriminate himself and his internal Artificial Intelligence implant named Li to their own illegitimate activities. The burden of knowing the truth consumes his every waking thought and evokes ever more frightening dreams. Kutch and Li embark on a search for answers that leads them to unlikely friends, more confusing questions, and a race toward the unknown as he discovers that the one they seek to stop from killing again will stop at nothing to kill Kutch and Li next. Descendants is a science fiction suspense thriller, the first book of a four book series by Mark T. Bacome.
