City of a Million Dots

Scifi / Mystery

Blurb

Dystopian Detroit plays host to more than just the drug scarred street thugs, gangsters and hipsters of the old world, much more sinister powers frequent the city’s mean streets… Tough guy Victor Scram, wallowing in the sorrow of his recently deceased girlfriend, lies low in the darker corners of the underworld unaware of greater plots set in motion whilst Dr Neon experiments daringly with human genetics as some kind of twisted art form. With genetic modification, street gangs and the very city itself all jockeying for power in this dystopian wonderland there can be no prevalence, only chaos. A vibrant and warped world where everything is possible and nothing is off limits makes for the ultimate Sci-Fi action setting.

Prologue

Dear Victor,

In 18 minutes time I will go and lie on the railway track at Garelt. I will wait for the 00:13 D-train to come around the Garelt bend and 12 seconds after sighting it, it will reach my head. You don’t know it yet, but I’m doing this for you, my son. I’m committing your suicide. Of course, it is because of me that you wanted to commit suicide, but that is a small thing, Victor. There is nothing bigger than freedom of choice.

This is my greatest gamble, Victor, the planning has been excruciating, the execution is just that, but the outcome... I daren’t even imagine it, for they watch, they are everywhere. You have already encountered them, for it was their minions that killed Emily. I understand that you loved her, but I hope in the future you will be able to count that as an acceptable loss. The heart is an attractive playground, but battles are won and lost at a cellular level. Karl will help you with this.

Before I die, I will be you. I will feel everything that you are. I look forward to knowing you as I could not in life. I cannot send this as it would change too much, I will burn it and perhaps, from the particles that enter the air, you will know that I say, goodbye.

Albert Scram
