Read full description of the books The Third Curse:2052. Longevity Law Enforcement detective Chris McGregor and his rookie partner Meg Dalton are hit with a new case: U.S. Congressman Dustin Meacher and 22 other people have been killed in a domestic terrorism attack in a D.C. restaurant. Chris and Meg are ordered to solve the case quickly – to find the ‘right kind’ of perpetrator - or risk fueling the protests that threaten to send the city up in flames. Again. Neither Chris nor Meg finds the murky official solution to their case acceptable. They stubbornly fight to change the game to one they have a chance of winning, even if it kills them.
While The Third Curse is a prequel to the Longevity Law Enforcement 2107 Trilogy (Longevity, The Burning Rivers, The Dog on the Moon) it can easily be read as a stand-alone work of near future science fiction. For those who have read the trilogy, The Third Curse reveals how it all began for the two legendary detectives who virtually created LLE.
"Technological immortality is the prospect for much longer life spans made possible by scientific advances in a variety of fields: nanotechnology, emergency room procedures, genetics, biological engineering, regenerative medicine, microbiology, and others." - "Immortality" in Wikipedia
Read information about the authorI write science fiction. As a sideline, I write humor/suspense meant for animal lovers. My science fiction is set in the near future and uses trends to project what might have an impact on the lives of the people who could be our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It's the way we confront the big issues that interests me most. For example, how are we going to deal with each other when some of us, and only some of us, can afford the genetic engineering that can offer us perpetual youth and near-immortality?
In the words of one reviewer, my speculative fiction "adroitly juxtaposes action scenes with subtle social commentary and character development."
No matter how serious the subject - murder, kidnapping, corrupt politicians, the collapse of civilization - so far I find that twinges of humor crop in. It seems unavoidable. My favorite characters all seem to agree with George Bernard Shaw: "Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."
My work is suitable for adults and YA.
