Cumulus is a standalone novel set in a near-future where economic inequality and persistent surveillance push Oakland to the brink of civil war. Feedback has started to roll in from advance readers and I’m really excited about how the story came together. Here’s the very first blurb:
“Cumulus is a prophetic Bay Area thriller, a Jason-Bourne-meets-Silicon-Valley story of escalating technology, inequality and a crumbling state. When a former CIA-operative-turned-hired-gun joins forces with tech giant Cumulus, cracks in the digital facade emerge, laid bare by a powerful and simple analog alternative. In today’s world where intimate personal details are just another row in someone’s ‘big data,’ Cumulus is a stark reminder that data are power–and absolute data corrupt absolutely.”
