Silicon Blood, the futuristic crime noir scifi thriller by Arlan Andrews, Sr., is now available in audiobook. Read by Paxton Edison, Silicon Blood offers a chilling look at what drug wars might be like when you mix nanotechnology and a ruthless psychopath willing to kill millions of people.
In the near future, the drug cartels of South America establish their own criminal nation, Cordillera, and proceed to flood the world with cocaine and political corruption. America responds by using the new science of nanotechnology to produce microscopic machines – “nanobots” – to eradicate such drugs once and for all. But these tiny devices can also be used to create new kinds of drugs inside a human body – a “pharm” – or to devour it from within.
After a catastrophic nano-plague, a new and powerful drug lord, El Hombre – “The Guy” – uses nanobots to set up a worldwide drug ring, harvesting new drugs from human bodies, and enforcing obedience with threats of devouring them.
Jerry Gade, a nano-engineer with a horrific secret, fights back. The struggle between Gade and “The Guy” takes place in both the human domain and in the invisible world of their own nano-creations. The outcome of their battle will determine the future of the human race.
Paxton Edison’s narration will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will find excuses to be able to keep listening to Silicon Blood.
