The Dreaming Tree
“Everybody wants to live forever, but some people shouldn't live at all.....
After a near-fatal car crash, Royce Lowell-Vandeweghe wakes up to find he's one of the first patients to undergo a radical new procedure: a full-body transplant. Convalescing years later and suffering from waking nightmares, he answers the door at his Long Island home and meets Delta Devlin, a New York detective. She sees things nobody else can - visions created by a mutation to her eyes - and meeting Royce sets off an unraveling chain of events....
Royce becomes Devlin's prime suspect in a string of grisly murders. Desperate for answers, he tracks down the grieving widow of the man whose body he now inhabits. Out of time, and perhaps his mind, they spiral into a world of black-market body parts and billionaires where nothing can stand in the way of living forever - not even death itself."
“A tale of apocalyptic survival in a mysterious frozen world on the brink of destruction–the incredibly realistic story of one family’s struggle against the odds.
Lost meets DaVinci Code in the new thriller from Matthew Mather, worldwide bestseller over a MILLION COPIES SOLD, translations in 24 languages and film development by 20th Century Fox.”
“Mike Mitchell is an average New Yorker struggling just to keep his family together when a string of disasters shreds the bustling megacity around them.
The Internet and communication networks go down…a deadly epidemic rages across the country…then a monster snowstorm cuts New York off from the world.
Days go by without contact to the outside world. Then weeks. Murder and vigilante justice replace law and order. Millions fight to survive.
In the chaos, conspiracy theories rage about a foreign cyberattack. Was it the North Koreans? The Russians? The Chinese? Might it be the first shockwave of a global shift in power? But even these questions become unimportant as Mike and his family struggle for survival in the wintry tomb of a doomed New York."
“Jake O’Connell leaves a life of crime and swears he’ll never return, but his new life as a stock broker in New York is ripped away when his childhood friend Sean Womack is murdered.
Thousands of miles away in Hong Kong, scientist Jin Huang finds a list of wealthy dead people in a massive banking conspiracy. Problem is, some of the people don’t stay dead. As Jin begins her investigation, she’s petrified to discover her own name on the growing list of dead-but-alive.
On the run, Jake O’Connell and Jin Huang race across continents to uncover a dark secret spreading like a cancer into the world. Why was Sean killed, and how is the list of wealthy dead connected? Are some of them really coming back to life? But all this becomes irrelevant when Jake’s family is attacked…"
New Earth Series
Nomad – New Earth Book 1
“SOMETHING MASSIVE IS COMING, and it’s heading for Earth. That’s what astronomer Ben Rollins is told by NASA after being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night. His first instinct is to call his daughter, Jessica, who’s vacationing in Italy with his wife.
“It’s a hundred times bigger than the sun,” Ben tells them. “Somehow we can’t see it yet, and we don’t know what it is, but they’re calling it Nomad — and in just months, the Earth may be destroyed.”
But how did they miss detecting it until now?
The world erupts into chaos as the end approaches, and Ben discovers his wife and daughter are trapped in Europe.
The key to Nomad’s mystery — and humanity’s ultimate survival — rests in the answers Ben pieces together from his old Cold War-era research papers, in the midst of a desperate scramble across continents to find his family before Nomad swallows the planet."
Sanctuary – New Earth Book 2
“In the Day of the Nomad, oceans flooded the continents, the earth split open and poured darkness into the skies. A mass extinction event as the Earth hadn’t witnessed in more than two hundred and fifty million years, the planet flung into a radical new orbit around the Sun.
Jessica Rollins survived, hidden away in a mountaintop in Italy, and has made radio contact with other survivor groups scattered around the wrecked globe–but the destruction is only just beginning.
The key to humanity’s survival may lie in a backpack she recovered from her father, in the data he collected more than thirty years before as Harvard’s preeminent astrophysicist. Information he died trying to protect.
His final words to her circle around and around in her head…survive, no matter what.
But at what cost? And what is…Sanctuary?"
Resistance – New Earth Book 3
“The fight for the future of humanity begins…Jessica Rollins has made it to safety inside the Sanctuary system with the help of Ufuk Erdogmus, but is her mysterious savior really who he says he is? What secrets does he hide? And how is he connected to Dr. Muller?
Jess doesn’t have much time to ponder these questions, as soon she is fighting again for her life…."
Destiny – New Earth Book 4
“After the destruction of the planet by Nomad, the final fight for the future comes to a staggering conclusion as Earth drops toward Saturn, and Jessica Rollins must decide whether to save the ones she loves or save the human race.
Destiny is the fourth and final novel in a four-book saga that follows one family’s fight to survive on a new Earth after a whole new category of disaster — all the more frightening as the science behind it was developed by a team of astrophysicists from CERN, SETI, and the Keck Observatory."
The Atopia Chronicles – Atopia Series Book 1
“In the near future, to escape the crush and clutter of a packed and polluted Earth, the world’s elite flock to Atopia, a massive corporate-owned artificial island in the Pacific Ocean. It is there that Dr. Patricia Killiam rushes to perfect the ultimate in virtual reality: a program to save the ravaged Earth from mankind’s insatiable appetite for natural resources.
Now in development as a new TV series, The Atopia Chronicles (Book 1 of the Atopia series) is the tale of mankind’s dark slide across the apocalypse as humans and machines merge in a world teetering on the brink of ecological ruin.“
The Dystopia Chronicles – Atopia Series Book 2
“Cast out from Atopia, Robert Baxter undertakes a globe-trotting quest to find his friend Willy’s lost body, which just may hold the key to understanding the dangers facing his home…and Jimmy Scadden’s role in the disasters that are spreading across the world.
As Robert pieces together the puzzle, he realizes that mankind’s ravenous consumption of natural resources is no longer the most immediate threat to this world. As full-scale global war erupts and an ancient apocalyptic threat resurfaces, Robert must risk losing the ones he loves to save the planet from destruction."
The Utopia Chronicles – Atopia Series Book 3
“Robert Baxter once reveled in the intoxicating delights of Atopia—the man-made island where humans lose themselves in a world of boundless virtual realities. Now, Bob has returned to immerse himself in this mind-altering, consciousness-sharing refuge from the eroding Earth.
But something is very wrong. Bob feels a tidal wave of doom cresting above the pleasure dome that is Atopia. As alternate universes perish, the salvation of all he loves—and all that exists—rests with Bob alone. To save the future, he must journey to the farthest edge of the past, where existence itself began and Atopia’s deepest secrets may lie. Yet even the knowledge Bob ultimately gains may not be a match for an enemy as powerful as a god, and as all-consuming as death…"
