In the untold beginnings of Earth’s history, a highly-sophisticated alien race seeded the planet with human DNA. In that intervention, they planted the Kowalewski bloodline, a lineage that inherited not just more of the interstellar farming scientists’ DNA than any of other, but also an uncontrollable yearning for knowledge and power. The Kowalewski bloodline traces its roots to ancient Sumer and a revered medicine man named Tao, who initiated early experiments on the human brain. Whether he acts purely out of spiritual curiosity, in pursuit of scientific knowledge, or is working at the shadowy behest of parties unknown is unclear What is clear is that Tao’s grisly experiments on mapping the human brain are passed forward to his descendants and that their knowledge has increased and dispersed as the bloodline has branched and branched again.
In Germany at the dawn of the twentieth century, Franz and Edwin Kowalewski are modern scions of the ancient bloodline of Tao. Brilliant scientists, these twins have been operating on each other for most of their adult lives, but recently there are hints of spies and/or saboteurs accessing their research. They move their operations to an old castle in Berlin and send word to their sister, Hannelore, to break off her studies and join them. It is in Berlin that the Kowalewski siblings bear witness to a quantum leap in their research. Franz’s brain, after countless operations at the hands of Edwin, has started rewiring itself. Furthermore, Franz has developed frightening telekinetic abilities. When their research is abruptly cut short by the man who will become the ruthless antagonist of the story, it falls to their nephew Rudolf, Hannelore’s grandson, to volunteer his brain and continue his uncles’ work. In Rudolf, the miracle first seen in Franz’s brain is not only repeated but intensified.

Can Rudolf become “the Duke” and harness this long-sought power of the brain in ways seemingly unimaginable? Or will his metamorphosis also be cut short? Major General Schmidt has long known about the bloodline of Tao and has been watching the Kowalewskis with care. As Schmidt recognizes the potency of their research for transforming the German military, an epic rivalry is born between Schmidt and Rudolf, a rivalry that will play out across Europe and through the eras of Kaiser Wilhelm II and Hitler.
The first of a planned series, The Veranuxz Experiments is a dark, bloodthirsty tale of betrayal, revenge, intrigue, and the morality of power that spans two world wars and beyond.
The year is 2039, and Los Angeles is poised between order and chaos. After the Collapse of 2028, a vast section of LA, now known as the Disincorporated Zone, was disowned by the civil authorities and became a de facto third world country within the borders of the city.

Navigating the boundaries between DZ and LA proper is a tricky task, and there’s no one better suited than eccentric private investigator Erasmus Keane. So when movie mogul Selah Fiore decides she needs to get her hands on a rare coin lost somewhere in the city, she knows Keane is the man for the job.

But while the erratic Keane and his more sensible partner Blake Fowler struggle to unravel the mystery of the elusive coins, Blake’s girlfriend Gwen goes missing and Selah Fiore turns up murdered. Both of these crimes seem to be linked to the coins—and to an untraceable virtual currency called iotas, used by drug dealers and terrorist networks.

Framed for Selah’s murder and desperate to find Gwen, Keane and Fowler must outwit DZ warlords, outmaneuver a reclusive billionaire, and stay a step ahead of the police while they gradually uncover the truth about iotas. Soon the clues begin to point to a conspiracy at the highest levels of government—and to a mysterious trickster who has orchestrated it all. As the DZ devolves into chaos and another Collapse seems to loom, Blake Fowler realizes that the brilliant Erasmus Keane may have finally met his match.

Set in the world of The Big Sheep, Robert Kroese delivers another dystopian adventure novel full of wit and intrigue.
