Murder by Munchausen Trilogy
by M.T. Bass

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Mystery

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

A Cyber Crime Thriller Series: Notorious serial killers digitally resurrected to live & hunt again in hacked replicants, pursued by detectives of the Artificial Crimes Unit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT ONE:


Murder by Munchausen Chapter 1 – The Warehouse:

This particular Android Subject apparently went off the rails and killed a luckless pedestrian on his way to a bodega for some iced tea or bottled water to quench his thirst. A one-in-a-million occurrence, but every so often it still happens. Anyone who believes technology is infallible is a fool. The incident didn’t appear all that nefarious when first reported, but shortly thereafter the Atlas data stream went dark and patrol called our unit in. It quickly became obvious we were dealing with a malware hit, not a malfunction. The luckless pedestrian was actually not so luckless, being on what appeared to be the winning side of a particularly nasty termination suit with his ex, who we suspected had outsourced the final settlement to extra-judicial parties.

It might not make sense, but the beloved Media tags it “Murder by Munchausen.” For a price, there are hackers out there who will reprogram a synthoid to do your dirty work. The bad news: no fingerprints or DNA left at the crime scene. The good news—at least for us—is that they’re like missiles: once they hit their target, they’re usually as harmless as empty brass. The trick is to get them before they melt down their core OS data, so you can get the unit into forensics for analysis and, hopefully, an arrest.

EC’s scanner returned a hard ping. His quick double blink put his cross-hairs up on my lens and I followed his eye line to the northwest corner of the building…

GUEST POST:

Hey, Dude, What’s with the Hubcaps?

First of all, I’m not a genre writer.  I’ve got a spy novel, a murder mystery, sci-fi police procedurals, a dark comedy, a young adult dystopia, a legal thriller, and a romance. So, what to do about my book covers? I did not want my Amazon page to look like a bad Salvador Dali dream—not to mention enduring six-pack abs on my covers.

So, I haunted the shelves at Barnes & Nobel and Books A Million, stalking my favorite authors, like Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut, and Carl Hiaasen:




Maybe the idea is to have an author-themed cover…

But first and foremost, the cover has to be readable in tiny little Amazon icon form.  While I love many of the cool full bleed cover photos, you’ve got to be able to read the basic information, so I put the title at the top and my name at the bottom against solid colors.  Even though different covers have different color combos, the visual motif carries through.

I also liked the whimsical drawings Heller, Hiaasen and Vonnegut use—and there just happens to be such a filter on the Affinity photo software I use. I put it to good use to give my artwork a bit of a cartoon look:


And if you think I’m a bit off the mark, it seems that now Stephen King is going that direction, too:


Look for my covers now wherever fine books are sold:

    1. Hi Bernie --

      I wasn't that far ahead of myself to know what I wanted to do when I grew up.

      I was kind of busy just being a kid.

      Thanks.

    1. Hi Bernie --

      Absolutely! Once all the zombies are done away with, you've got to have new bad guys to chase--and who better than AI hit men?

      John Krasinksi might work as Jake with Emma Stone as Maddie. I'd have to give some thought to The Baron, though.

      Thanks.
