Shades: The Gehenna Dilemma

Hello MobileRead community! My name is Eric Dallaire, and I'm new to the forum. I'm the author of the new novel, Shades: The Gehenna Dilemma. The book just went live on the Amazon store.

I have attached a short synopsis of the plot, and a link to the Amazon product page below.

Book Synopsis:

In 2039, when people die owing money, the government turns them into mindless servants. Shades. These undead workers toil until their debts are settled. Without complaint, they pave roads, till fields, and build moon settlements for the wealthy. Jonah Adams struggles to balance his life in this grim world. To prevent his dying mother from becoming a shade, he joins the IRS as a ghoul, an agent that collects recently deceased debtors. The pay is good, but the cost is high. His girlfriend, Vanessa, a bankruptcy lawyer protecting the rights of the poor, despises his line of work. To set things right, he just needs to complete a few more missions. With luck, he can settle all scores and maybe have enough to buy two tickets to the lunar colony. However, nothing comes easy for Jonah, especially when others come to reap what he has sown.



Amazon Page:
I've enabled the Look Inside feature and there is a downloadable sample of the initial chapters for readers to sample my writing.

Thanks for considering the book! I'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

Best

Eric Dallaire

Hello!

Here is an update on my novel Shades: The Gehenna Dilemma.

Publishers Weekly recently posted a great review of the book.

"Dallaire torques his tale with sinuous twists that keep the reader guessing. His real achievement, though, is his credible rendering of a world in which virtual reality and avatar technology are so rampant that it’s hard to tell what’s real from what isn’t—much to the benefit of this craftily plotted futuristic crime thriller."

Here is a link to the full review:

Also, I posted a new book trailer to YouTube. Feedback is welcome!

Hello all!

Shades: The Gehenna Dilemma is on sale this week for .99 cents! Publisher's Weekly recently called the novel an 'impressive debut' and currently it has 31 positive reviews on Amazon.

The Concept: In this book's future, if you die owing money, the IRS brings you back from the dead to pay off what you owe. The main character, Jonah, is a 'ghoul' bounty hunter who chases after families that refuse to turn over their debt-ridden deceased relatives.

I've made the book available on the major ebook sites (links below).

Check out the trailer here:

Hello all!

Shades: The Gehenna Dilemma earned another stellar editorial review, this one from Kirkus Review.

"A compelling, comic-book--ish action-thriller in which life's new inevitables are death, taxes, and a gruesome post-mortem payment plan."

Here's the link to the full review:
https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-r...henna-dilemma/

Also, the 99 cent sale has been extended through the month on all major ebook platforms! Currently, it's in the top 20 for SciFi/Cyberpunk at Amazon.
