Book Description

The Arx by Jay Allan Storey

The Indie Book of the Day for 22nd of November, 2015!

Genre: Mystery, Suspense

A year ago, after a mental breakdown, ex-homicide detective Frank Langer was placed on medical leave from the squad he was once hand-picked to lead. Now he spends his days drinking and chain-smoking, and his nights waking up screaming from a horrific recurring nightmare. Everything changes when he stumbles on what looks like a conspiracy to kidnap children.

When he shows up at the squad with his story, his former colleagues pat him on the back and tell him to go home. Undaunted, he digs deeper into the mystery, joined by Rebecca, the aunt of one of the missing children. She tries to help Frank confront the horrific event that led to his breakdown.

When he finally connects the pieces, the answer is more deadly than he ever imagined, and telling Rebecca would put her life in danger. Soon even she comes to question his sanity.

If Frank is right the conspiracy threatens the entire human race. But can he find someone to buy his story before it’s too late?

Read Sample

Born in Victoria, BC, Canada, Jay has traveled the world, passing through many places in the news today, including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and the Swat valley in Pakistan. He has worked at an amazing variety of jobs, from cab driver to land surveyor to accordion salesman to software developer.

Jay is the author of two novels, THE ARX, and ELDORADO, a novella, CHOPPER MUSIC, and a number of short stories. A new novel is due late in 2015, and several other projects are in the works. His stories always skirt close to the edge of believability (but hopefully never cross over). He is attracted to characters who are able to break out of their stereotypes (as Jackson Reilly does in CHOPPER MUSIC) and transform themselves.

He loves both reading and writing, both listening to and playing music, and working with animals. He’s crazy for any activity relating to the water, including swimming, surfing, wind-surfing, sailing, snorkeling, and scuba diving.

Jay is married and lives in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
