July Book Releases
Memory Clouds by Tony Moyle
Expected publication date: July 17th, 2020
Genre: YA Dystopian
Synopsis: The Circuit knows everything about you…because they are you.
Jake Montana waits for the letter every eighteen-year-old receives on their birthday. It’s the one from the Circuit. It’s the one that determines the rest of your life. Your partner, job, home, and crucially, your importance factor, have are all selected for you. In the year 2054 your ‘importance factor’ is everything, but it’s not random. It’s based on a detailed assessment of every thought, emotion and memory you’ve ever stored in your Memory Cloud since the first day you received the implants. Your fate, the Circuit insists, is always yours.
But the future that Jake most wants won’t be inside his letter. It can’t be. His childhood sweetheart, Christie, won’t reach her Ascension Day for months so it’s impossible that her name will appear. He’s right, but there are bigger surprises in store for him. The Memory Cloud has chosen a life for Jake that no one would want. A life that will lead to the murky world of the Spectrum, a community who denounce the Circuit and refuse to comply with their rules. A life designed to keep Jake from Christie and hide the truth that lives deep inside him.
A truth that the Circuit will stop at nothing to keep from the world.
Human Resources by Robin Triggs
Expected publication date: July 23rd, 2020
Synopsis: The sequel to Night Shift, praised by Crime Review and Cemetery Dance.
Antarctica. A city on the edge of nowhere.
Anders Nordvelt is chief of security in this frozen land, so, when a prominent member of a dissident group is murdered, it is his job to find the killer. Unsatisfied with the obvious explanation, Anders keeps pushing until the body of a colleague turns up in his apartment.
Could Anders really be the killer? Why does he half-remember wielding the knife? And why are the whispers of a fabled Human Resources black-ops team getting ever louder?
As for Anders, he’s about to enter a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with a ruthless killer.
Thanks for reading!
