Derma ads have replaced skin tattoos; the Nike Swoosh is projected onto the full moon, and digital sponsor logos run along the side of every police sedan. The city is under siege from a gang war, the streets flooded with Green Ice, a drug more powerful and deadly than fentanyl. And there’s a new plague; Alzheimer’s disease has spawned Alz-X, a virulent new strain that attacks children. No one knows why.
Eddie Piedmont, the youngest Homicide Special detective in lapd history, has a lot to prove. Growing up with an abusive green ice junkie for a father, Eddie is determined to show he is nothing like his old man who was kicked off the force years ago. Eddie takes on the case of a fatal overdose of a woman tied to a geneticist working on the cure for Alz-X.
When another suspicious death occurs, Eddie is drawn into the nefarious world of cutting-edge reproductive technology, only to discover terrible secrets at the heart of his identity and his family’s history that will pull him much closer to the murderer than he could ever have imagined.
Part noir science-fiction and part twisted new-take on Greek myth, Genesys X is a page-turning police procedural featuring an unforgettable haunted detective.
