Can a team of scientist, hackers, and one ex-cop save the day? In this thrilling follow up to STATE OF MIND, Jake “Jackhammer” Travissi, who survived his own digital zombification, fights the global conspiracy with his dwindling allies.Set in a believable world a mere thirty years in the future, STATE OF UNION is book two in a trilogy that addresses questions raised by our increasingly technologically dependent society.

STATE OF UNION is for anyone who enjoys a page-turning action adventure with international political intrigue. A story that begins as a Los Angeles based cyberpunk police thriller in book one, expands globally to Antarctica, an Apache Indian Reservation, Beijing, Shanghai, Mumbai, and Acapulco.

Those who follow today’s tech trends or are fascinated with near-future predictions will identify well with this book. It will also satisfy readers interested in cybernetics, mass effect, singularity theory, eugenics, terrorism, fundamentalism, and exotic settings. After living on the fringe of society for five years, Jake Travissi returns to civilization to find that a recent nano-virus epidemic has killed millions worldwide. Implanting a Personal Chip (a device which enhances the mind with the capabilities of a smart phone and personal computer, but creates a window for hackers) into the brain is the only cure. As if this wasn’t bad enough, Jake has been asked to kill his former LAPD colleague Joaquin Parks. Parks is now the head of a church accused of nuclear terrorist acts around the world. Meanwhile, the dawn of Artificial Intelligence and the promise of immortality could be just around the corner… With his fiancée Tomoko Sakai and his faithful Husky Lakshmi, Jake is thrown into the center of a conspiracy engineered by an international group of powerful men and women who call themselves The Consortium. The Consortium’s goal is to end Free Will and establish absolute control over the world. In his quest to defeat this powerful enemy, Jake finds himself traveling the globe. But time is running out, as all of humanity rapidly approaches large-scale genocide or life as automaton zombies.Whether one is reading the trilogy in order or just happened to come across STATE OF UNION, the novel provides enough background information to stand on its own as a heart pumping sci-fi thriller.
