Metropolis wasn’t a bad place, but it wasn’t a good one either.

A CRUEL CYBER SUMMER NIGHT is a novella in the LIQUID COOL sci-fi/cyberpunk detective series.

It’s a world of colossal skyscrapers. Hovercars fly above in the dark, rainy skies and gray people walk below on the grimy, hard streets in the “Neon Jungle.” Uber-governments and megacorporations fight for control of the super-city, but so does crime.

In the distance, I could see the light show of red and blue flashing sirens. Did this mean that the official days of “cyber summer” had begun? The season of summer was a relative term in Metropolis, since it rained all the time.

Metropolis had its crime: tech hustlers, neon gangsters, samurai street soldiers, cyborg psychos, etc. “Cyber summer” was that time of the year when the “normal” mayhem of the streets increased. I was in one of three professions that lived in the mayhem: police, hospitals, and private detectives like me.

There are a million victims and perpetrators in this High-Tech, Low-Life World.

“I was headed to see the client and as long as I avoided any laser-gun shootouts, I’d consider the night a good one.”

WHO’s the Bad Guy? — WHO as in the World Health Organization.

Our favorite sci-fi detective tangles with World Health Organization villains in his latest case. But what does bio-terrorism have to do with a Metropolis street detective?

Biopunk Blues (Liquid Cool, Book 7)

Liquid Cool is the action-packed (and funny) cyberpunk detective series!

Cruz got to meet his “posthumous” mentor, but now Wilford G. is really gone. Nothing is going right anymore. However, in Metropolis crime never sleeps, and in this supercity, depressed detectives end up dead detectives.

There’s only one way for any detective to get back on track. A new case drops into his lap from an unlikely client. A missing secret briefcase from the Centers for Disease Control. A lab with dead men in bio-suits. A wealthy tycoon who doesn’t really exist. What exactly does it all mean?

Biopunk street gangs, shady international government agencies, underworld bio-pirates, and corporate bio-terrorists are all on the loose in Metropolis! Did we mention the citywide quarantines too? For this one, he’ll need his entire team. But can Cruz solve the case before becoming a biological victim to some designer plague virus himself?

The sci-fi/cyberpunk detective series continues with plenty of action, surprises, thrills, and laughs — just what you need in these times.

“Cruz, you’re under arrest for murder!”
In The Moon Is A Good Place to Die (Liquid Cool, Book 8) the Sci-Fi Detective Series leaves Earth behind.
Cruz has been framed for murder and Metro PD is after him. The victim wasn’t just a client. He’s the heir of a wealthy off-world dynasty and they want revenge — against him. Why won’t anyone believe that he didn’t do it?

But Cruz knows who framed him. He fought the man — if that’s what you can call him — for his very life. No matter how long it takes, what violence must ensue, he’ll chase down this Three-Armed Man wherever the trail takes him. This time the client is himself, and he has no intention of letting him down.

Cruz travels far beyond the supercity of Metropolis in this case to the Lunar Colonies above, where the average resident is richer than anyone on Earth.

You’ll Never See Starlight Again: The Cyberpunk Detective Series (Liquid Cool Book 10)
by Austin Dragon
4.8 Stars (7 Reviews)
Genre: Science Fiction

Our favorite, sci-fi private eye is back in the tenth novel in the Liquid Cool sci-fi detective series — You’ll Never See Starlight Again.

“Cruz, do you remember NeuroDancer?”

Last years’ overseas family vacation didn’t quite turn out as expected (namely a dead body), but Cruz is back on his home turf to solve cases on the rainy, neon, mean streets of Metropolis, as if he never left.
New suit. New hat. New case. At first, he thought his natural paranoia was playing tricks on him, but now he’s certain — he’s being followed.

Many villains have tried to kill Cruz, but NeuroDancer came closer than most and with flair to the very end. Cruz always feared her mind-control “powers” might fall into criminal hands, but it’s far worse.

An ultra-secret organization of corporate spies — all female — may have acquired the psi-tech. And now they seek vengeance against Cruz for their fallen ‘sister.’

But there are other desperate and deadly players in the shadows. Everyone is after the stolen corporate device known by the codename: Starlight.

Action, thrills, and laughs. The sci-fi/cyberpunk detective series continues. Welcome to the high-tech, low-life world of Liquid Cool.
