Compromised: A Quake Runner: Alex Kayne Thriller by [Kevin Tumlinson]

EVERYONE WANTS ALEX KAYNE

FBI, CIA, NSA, Foreign Governments—and now an international thief and conman with seemingly unlimited reach.

Reed Harltan has plans for Alex Kayne.

With one of Alex’s clients under his thumb, Harltan may just have managed to pull off something even the powerful US alphabet agencies couldn’t do—put her on a leash, and use her powerful AI software to do his bidding.

Harltan wants Alex to break into the Boston Literary Archives and retrieve a rare manuscript, protected by a next-level security system that utilizes an artificial intelligence of its own.

Can even QuiEK crack the most sophisticated security on the planet?

And if Alex pulls this off, will she be Harltan’s tool for good?

The clock is ticking, and Alex Kayne only has one week to find a way out, or her client dies.

COMPROMISED is the THIRD full-length novel in Kevin Tumlinson’s

Book Promo ~ The Darwin Project: Annihilation Series

The Darwin Project
Book One: Annihilation Series

 by John Hindmarsh

Darwin – Demon or Friend, the Beginning or the End?

That’s Toby’s enigma. When he inherits his uncle’s corporate empire, he discovers it’s controlled by two superintelligences.

Darwin wants to prove he’s more intelligent than humans. For Bronwyn—the other SI—there’s no mystery: she already knows the answer.

The corporate empire is based on robotics—it’s the world’s largest manufacturers of processors, software, and templates for robots. Bots are taking over mundane jobs. They’re intelligent, perhaps too intelligent. Terrorist groups—led by brownshirts—are furthering social unrest.

What is the mystery of his uncle’s disappearance?
Toby’s friends are assaulted.
A brownshirt group plans to kill him.
His girlfriend is kidnapped.

Will Artificial Intelligence be the end of Humanity?

The fuse is lit for an exciting thriller.

From the Author

I have a muse that sits on my shoulder and beats me over the head with a cricket bat if I don’t take notice of its urgings.
About two – three years ago I encountered some comments by people like Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking about artificial intelligences (AI) and superintelligences(SI). Others have joined in, some not so alarming. Their comments – warnings, really – also caught the attention of my muse and the possibilities have been rattling around in my otherwise empty skull.
Well, you should be able to understand why my muse became excited.
Add social, economic, and political issues to the technological aspects and the result provides a basis for a suspenseful and challenging thriller series.
Now I don’t know whether to describe the Annihilation Series as a technothriller or a political thriller or simply as an exciting thriller series. I’ll let you make up your mind about the sub-genre possibilities.

Note that the books in this series are not intended to be standalone thrillers. They are intended to be episodes of a serial, with each book following on from the prior books.
