Liquid Cool is the action-packed (and funny) sci-fi detective thriller series!

In an ever-rainy world of super-skyscrapers, hovercars fly above in the dark, bustling skies and gray people walk below on the grimy, flashy streets of this “neon jungle.” Metropolis isn’t a bad place, but it isn’t a good one either. Uber-governments and megacorporations fight for control of the supercity, but so does crime.

We meet Cruz, our private eye (and unlikely hero), in a supercity with a million victims and perpetrators. He tangles with tech-tricksters, analog hustlers, and digital gangsters—psychos, samurais, and cyborgs aplenty. They may want your money, or your life, more than you do.

Prepare for thrills, mystery, action, and laughs! But don’t get shot by a laser-pistol-packing cyber-punk in a dark alley. Welcome to the high-tech, low-life world of Liquid Cool.

For sci-fi fans who want lots of action and lots of laughs. Cyborgs, shoot-outs, and spaceships. This sci-fi detective thriller series with the unlikely hero detective has you covered!

Meet Cruz, our private eye with a cool hat, laser gun, and attitude. A mix of sci-fi noir, the private detective thriller, and laughs!

This villain is so dangerous the off-worlders would blow up a city from space to kill him…and now he’s after Cruz.

“Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful,” she said to him. Has Cruz met his supervillain match in NeuroDancer?

Our sci-fi detective travels from the concrete wastelands outside Metropolis across the Great Ocean to London Prime (that’s what they call it in the future). And someone has found a way to kill people in virtual reality–for real.

Our private detective, Cruz, has dealt with all kinds of criminal crazies—full human, cyborgs and robots—and even crazier clients. But he has never had to deal with…extraterrestrials.

The biggest caper in Metropolis history? Cruz has tangled with some of the most dangerous, cunning, and sinister criminals around. But this case is even bigger? Maybe we should have left A.I. as science fiction. 


In the prequel, before we even meet our hero detective, we see his first case and meet his first villain, a “unique” psycho cyborg known as Red.

Over 1,000 pages includes These Mean Streets, Darkly (prequel), Liquid Cool (Book 1), Blade Gunner (Book 2) and NeuroDancer (Book 3)!

Nearly 1,000 pages includes The Electric Sheep Massacre (Book 4), I, Alien Hunter (Book 5) and A.I. Confidential (Book 6)!

What does bio-terrorism have to do with a Metropolis street detective? Biopunk street gangs, shady international government agencies, underworld bio-pirates, and corporate bio-terrorists.

Cruz has been framed for murder and Metro PD is after him. The victim wasn’t just a client. He’s the heir of a wealthy off-world dynasty and they want revenge—against him. Why won’t anyone believe that he didn’t do it?

Can you combine the Sci-Fi Detective Series with the Cozy Murder Mystery? Liquid Cool can! It was supposed to be a nice, quiet, relaxing family vacation. But there’ll be none for our famous private eye. There's been a murder.

Over 1,000 pages include Biopunk Blues (Book 7), The Moon Is a Good Place to Die (Book 8) and Write Me a Murder on Jules Verne’s Island (Book 9)!

The Storm of the Century is coming. But will it be enough to wash away all the blood. Fear the cyborgs and the legend known as Classic Cyborg.


In the shadowy world of the megacorporations there’s a rumor of a cyber-assassin like no other. But why would The Digital Samurai need a detective?
