Arctic Adagio, DJ Cockburn’s mystery novelette set in a dystopic but all-too-believable near future, is now available for pre-order. Rex Harme is a former police detective whose current job is to protect the very wealthy people who have taken to living on a luxury ship rather than submit to any nation’s jurisdiction. When one of the super-rich is thrown into the Arctic Ocean, Harme is faced with the dilemma of how to catch a murderer when the suspects own the law.
Release day is May 29. You can pre-order the ebook now:
There will also be a paperback edition available on May 29.
We are also running a great promo for Arctic Adagio! We published an earlier novelette by DJ Cockburn called Caresaway. It is also set in a somewhat dystopic but all-too-believable near future. In that future, a dedicated scientist works years to cure depression… and succeeds. But the medicine he discovered comes with a terrible cost. Years later, his wonder drug has helped people with depression. But has it also helped destroy the world economy? And what has it done to him?
One of the things I love about DJ Cockburn’s novelettes is the way the excellent storytelling and believable characters pull me through his stories. Only after I finish the book do I realize the implications for our own time – these books will leave you thinking, but only after telling you a really great story!
