Great escape with rich characters, twists and turns. Each book in the 12-volume series takes you on an adventure to a new location.

Brilliant. Fearless. Unstoppable. Raja Williams is a private detective who is relentless in his pursuit of justice. Neither the dark, tragic anti-hero nor the James Bond super-hero type, Raja uses his intuitive genius and penetrating empathy to unravel mysteries. He and his partner Vinny Moore, a high-tech hacker with brains and beauty, do whatever it takes to help those who have nowhere else to turn.

Jack Thompson gives his readers what they want: a good plot with a central character painted in bold colours.” – Mike Smith, e-thriller

Science Fiction

Science fiction has gone from an obscure scientific field of writing to a mainstream cultural phenomenon. Science fiction stories and books create universes that let all of us think outside the box of what we call normal everyday life.

From the early science fiction of Jules Verne and H.G.Wells through the Golden Age stories of Hubbard, Heinlein and Asimov and on to the many popular authors of today, science fiction and fantasy have entertained and educated millions. One of my favorites as a young lad was the Tom Swift series.

Today ideas considered fantastic when first written have become reality. Science fiction continues to point the way to the future.

In the not-too-distant future the United States sends its first manned mission to the planet Mars. When the crew of Mars Mission 31 discover an alien artifact, they learn the story of Plixon, a planet not so different from Earth where the population is monitored and controlled by a supercomputer known as the Godmachine. The story that unfolds follows the life of Ra’dall Simms, an unimportant citizen whose desperate need to make sense of his unraveling life takes him on an adventure that will change his world forever. When the returning mission crew relay the Plixon story to their superiors at NASA, there are major political implications which imperil both the lives of the astronauts and the future of Earth.

With great reviews coming in like “A chilling vision of the future with great characters to love and hate!” and “Godmachine is a great read any science fiction fan will love!” this science fiction dystopian tale promises to be another good read from Jack Thompson.

If you’ve been following the story of the recent landing of NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover, or if you’re a fan of NASA’s Apollo missions, they you’ll almost certainly enjoy reading Godmachine.
As a bonus for all readers, along with the tale of the astronauts’ journey to Mars, Thompson cleverly weaves in the tale of the Godmachine. Both stories are heart-pounding and action packed.
These stories are skillfully crafted in such a way that Thompson is able to make us take an introspective look at our own human strengths and weaknesses.
I highly recommend this book for fans of Science Fiction and Space Travel, or for anyone who’s just looking for a quality book that’s fun to read.   Blase Ciabaton, Twisted Sci Fi
