A Cyberpunk Thriller To Keep You on the Edge of Your Seat!
Liquid Cool is the action-packed (and funny), cyberpunk detective series.
How Much is One Life Worth?
In the sci-fi/cyberpunk detective series, author Austin Dragon shows why you never want to meet a cyborg in a dark alley. Liquid Cool is a cross between Blade Runner and the Maltese Falcon. There is plenty of gritty action, suspense, thrills, and even a few laughs.
It’s cyberpunk reimagined—an ever-rainy world of colossal skyscrapers, hovercars, flashy neon streets, and futuristic mechanization. Metropolis isn’t a bad place, but it isn’t a good one either. Uber-governments and megacorporations fight for control of the fifty-million-plus super-city, but so does crime.
We meet Cruz, our private eye (and unlikely hero), in this super-city with a million victims and perpetrators. Watch out for tech-tricksters, analog hustlers, and digital gangsters—psychos, samurais, and cyborgs aplenty. Visitors have a way of becoming permanent attractions.
Welcome to the high-tech, low-life world of Liquid Cool.
When you lose your share of $2.4 million, do you walk away, or settle the score?
After a successful heist, three grifters stop overnight in a small town off the beaten path when their leader Frank is arrested and their $2.4 million score disappears.
Believing there is no honor among thieves, Frank is reluctant to help fellow grifters Jared and Chance recover the money while he remains in jail awaiting trial. But with an unpredictable cop on the take, a double-cross in the works, and a hitman dispatched to recover the money, time is a luxury the trio of grifters cannot afford to waste by trying to figure out who's double crossing whom if they hope to have any chance of recovering the money and staying alive.
And before they lose what little leverage they have, Jared and Chance make a bold and daring move to rig Frank's trial, a scheme which sets in motion events that lead to a dramatic verdict, unforeseen consequences, and the wisdom that it would have been better to give than deceive.
The streets aren't safe when your enemy wears a blue uniform and a gold badge.
What if the good guys weren't good?
What if a cop went rogue and killed an innocent man?
What if it was all caught on video and the cop would do anything to cover it up?
"Much like the script of an action-packed movie, Enemy in Blue will buffet you from one hair-raising scene to another -- and will always leave you pondering, who's the real enemy?" -L.Capritta
For anyone that craves an action-packed thriller and can't get their fill of Grisham, Koontz or Patterson...Enemy in Blue is your next escape!
"For action, body-count and digging into the underworld of police politics--this is really a great read. However, the best asset of the novel is the incredible drawing of the antagonist--the evil Sergeant Shaver really shines." -P.Weekly
