With the impending death of their most beloved King, both Mega and Commoner alike brace themselves for the inevitable chaos his absence will create. While the most elite of the Megas ready themselves to select a new leader, Detective Jack Madison finds his murder investigation hampered by corruption and his loyalties tested by the most shocking person of all.
As Jack Madison continues to investigate the puzzling apparent suicide of a prominent Mega, he finds out more than he bargained for about the structure he's always put his faith in. Meanwhile a visit from his girlfriend creates more problems than it solves and he's left wondering if he can hold onto anything he holds dear.
Timing is running out for Agent Jack Madison to uncover who is behind the murder of Mega Prince Ellington Boudreaux. His mission is more important than ever since learning that a plot to massacre the Conclave is not an aim of the anti-Royalists, but a ploy by another, more shocking faction. But nothing can prepare Jack for the shock of who the culprit is working for...
From the visionary director of Terminator 3, Jonathan Mostow, we enter the world of The Megas. Beautiful. Powerful. Better. They're everything you've ever wanted to be. But at the heart of this dystopic society lies a regime struggling for control over a populace that may just be tired of being inferior. Agent Jack Madison finds himself in the middle of a maelstrom as he struggles to solve a crime and come to terms with a truth he's not ready to face. Not to mention a mysterious symbol and the seeds of rebellion.
"The Megas is a book that anyone can enjoy. If you are tired of the spandex set, or are just in the mood for a good mystery, then I suggest picking up a copy from your local comic shop." -Broken Frontier
"The only time I really get into political thrillers is when they are written very well, with a plot and characters I can relate to, and an art direction style that is engaging. The Megas has all this and more...(4 out of 5 stars)" - Majorspoilers.com
"Jonathan Mostow and John Harrison's script has a great balance of talking heads and exposition with motion and excitement. A love scene, a chase scene and a steady escalation of things into almost Tom Clancy-esque levels." - Comic Book Resources
