BOOK: The Resurrection Pact (Winston Casey Chronicles Book 1) by Jay Smith


THE RESURRECTION PACT (Winston Casey Chronicles Book 1)


Jay Smith

Welcome to Aeternus Online!

Every day, 50 million people log into the most immersive role-playing experience ever developed.
Thousands more wake up in a Las Vegas paradise built around the themes of the game, where the rich profit from producing virtual merchandise and real estate and members escape their mundane lives to live as warriors, wizards, or woodland elves in a sprawling Vegas playground resort.

But while Aeternus can be an exciting and bizarre experience, it conceals an underworld of fetish porn, drugs, and human trafficking.

When a decorated soldier dies trying to uncover the dark secrets at the core of the global criminal empire, he can only trust one person to finish his investigation.

Unfortunately, Winston Casey is just an unremarkable suburbanite dealing with a divorce, a miserable job, and remission from the leukemia that nearly killed him. He is still mourning the loss of his old friend when a message from beyond the grave inspires him to embark on what he believes will be a harmless, well-deserved adventure.

Out of his depth in a world of decadence and excess, can Winston rise to the challenge, save thousands of innocent strangers, and expose the conspiracy? Or will he succumb to the pleasures and vices offered by the Cult of Aeternus?

The Resurrection Pact is the first of five Geek Noir thrillers following Winston Casey through mysteries and adventures involving comic conventions, rock and roll tours, weird cults, underground movements, conspiracies, and murder.
