Killer in the Retroscape is on sale

Killer in the Retroscape: A Near-Future Mystery is on sale at your favorite eBook retailer for $0.99 (£0.99, €0.99), now through December 7.


In 2068, Doug Michaels finds his friend, Josh Unger, dead in his home. When law enforcement concludes his death was a suicide, Doug is dumbstruck – what could explain such a violent death in a future where such actions are unimaginable. Trying to unearth a killer, Doug creates a mental landscape of Josh’s past, a retroscape, starting in the mid-2030s.


Among its landmarks are:

  • An illness, sensationalized in the media as the “zombie pandemic”.
  • A mysterious phrase uttered at the attack on a government official.
  • Josh’s machine-intelligence wife, Julia, who may hold the secret … if she can only remember.

In the end, determining guilt in a retroscape littered with suspects tells Doug more about humanity, technology, and himself than he ever could have imagined.
