Product Description

Private detective Jerico Drake is used to dealing with a world that has basically rejected goodness. With the nation now balkanized into white black, and Hispanic sections, and the new breed of "genrich" (genetically sculptured) humans, technology has given evil a few more wrinkles.

Drake's client, the young and lovely Lori Hallendorf, seems like a light in the midst of darkness...even though her life has been marred by tragedy. As Drake investigates her brother's murder, he discovers that he's been targeted by anunrelenting assassin-a robotic killer with a shocking kind of artificial intelligence.

In a world of nanotechnology and genetic engineering, where fantasies are easily fullfilled but dreams turn to ashes, Drake must pursue a deadly trail that will show him both the worse, and the best, of humankind.

Author Bio

George L. Duncan is a former reporter and now an editorial writer. Although an avid golfer, his game was not nearly good enough to get him on the pro tour, so he became a writer instead. He has published three other novels—A Cold and Distant Memory, A Dark Orange Farewell, Galaxy Gems—and several stories in Christian e-magazines. He is now completing Hoofbeats of the Devil. He’s also a mystery fan. A Wine Red Silence sprang from the idea of putting a private detective into the balkanized, politically correct world of the future.

    Not bad. An enjoyable sci-fi detective yarn that made me think a little of Blade Runner. The hero's conversion near the end seemed to come out of nowhere as he didn't give much indication of any willingness to come to the Lord before that. My only other gripe is not about the writing but the editing (or lack thereof). There were enough errors that it was becoming a distraction. The story though was well done overall.
