Silver medal award winner, 2014 Independent Publisher Awards

"A literary thrill ride operated by complex and memorable characters . . . a plot worthy of Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, and Martin Cruz Smith."

The murder of a dear friend.

Conspiracy on a global scale.

A near-future, dystopic world run by corporations, where nothing is as it seems and everything is part of something else. Technology and everyday life are inseparable, and information is a weapon that can save your life--or kill you.

Exiled to a damp Southeast Asian "Republic," journalist True Ailey relentlessly searches the war-ravaged peninsula for the killers and the truth.

Virtually True, by award-winning journalist Adam Penenberg, is a non-stop 128 mph roller-coaster ride for the mind.

Now boarding.
