Murder by Munchausen Trilogy

by M.T. Bass




GENRE:   Mystery






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.




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…


Murder by Munchausen:
Jake & his partner MC are assigned to the Android Squad. Jake's girlfriend Maggie is a detective in the Robbery/Homicide division. When their cases intersect the must work together to find out who is programing androids into assassins.

The Darkest:
In this story Maggie & Jake are hunting The Baron. Can these two stop him before he kills again?

The Invisible Mind:
The Baron is still on the loose  Jake is in a come & Maddie is still struggling after her attack. Now there is a hostage and some very interesting things happening with an android.

The series was really out there . I loved how brilliantly it was told. I'm not sure what time it took place but I will say that it was cleverly plotted out and told in such a believable way. Each story brought mystery and drama. Along with a ton of excitement and guessing what would happen next and how Jake, Maggie and others would react to what was going on and what they would think of next. I highly recommend this series. it is really out there but it was told very well and was so enjoyable.
