A TIMELY, MIND-BENDING SCIFI THRILLER
“In a plausible near future, in response to a terror attack, Americans must be microchipped if they want health care or a job. Privacy is a lie, digital torture is real, and the well-off choose to install enhancing hardware in their brains. One man rejects all this. When a NeuroChip is forcibly implanted in him, he learns the hard way about mind control from both sides. OPEN SOURCE is a paranoid, mind-bending scifi thriller for our time.” – Amy Rogers, ScienceThrillers.com
“I was torn between racing to the next page and simultaneously wanting to linger on the words I was reading, wanting desperately to make them last longer…a truly magnificent novel that you don’t want to miss.” – Les Edgerton, Author of The Genuine, Imitation, Plastic Kidnapping
TRACKED AND HACKED
A source found dead—his skull sawed open by NeuroChip vandals in a Dallas back alley. The sole witness? Reporter Ryker Morris, whose stubborn resistance to a different kind of chip—the globally mandated IDChip—cost him his job, apartment, and credibility. Ryker flees the gruesome scene, a young, homeless technophobe disappearing into a fast-paced city of augmented working stiffs and sexy chipped socialites.
But Ryker’s reprieve doesn’t last long. Under orders from a local hacker and tipped off by an invisible tracking device, the vandals kidnap Ryker’s best friend, leaving only a blood-soaked wallet behind. Even worse, they inject Ryker’s brain with a refurbished NeuroChip. Without money or resources, he must find his friend and deactivate the corrupt NeuroChip, before the twisted hacker who programmed it gains full control over Ryker’s own thoughts.
