When you can’t hear
death comes silently.

Scotland Yard detective Valerie Crowther is assigned to investigate the murder of a student at a university for the Deaf in London, England. The murder investigation coincides with a deadly flu virus outbreak, resulting in the university being quarantined from the outside world.

When more Deaf students are murdered, it becomes clear there is a serial killer operating within the sealed-off university. A chilling cat-and-mouse game evolves as the unknown killer targets Valerie and the virus claims more lives.

A stunning, claustrophobic, “whodunit” murder mystery, Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes) is the eighth novel by father-and-son writing team Lance & James Morcan. Included is a commentary by Deaf filmmaker Brent Macpherson on the unique aspects of Deaf culture the story covers. Together, the Morcans and Macpherson are currently developing a feature film adaptation of Silent Fear.

Who Decides What is Human…
Corporations, Clones or Chimera?

When Finder is hired to locate charismatic, green-haired Miraluna Rose, it seems like an easy job. Crack into corporate databases, brew up some biologics to enhance his thinking, and get the job done with the help of the Parrot, a bird/dog chimera with the finest traits of both species.

The search takes Finder and the Parrot to the sun-broiled streets of Laxangeles, the canals of Seattle and the weirdly mutated vegetation of the Area. It turns out that it’s not a simple missing-person case after all.

Finder discovers that ReMe, a corporation providing medical cloning services, is illegally breeding human/animal chimeras. ReMe is selling these exotically beautiful female creatures, branded as ArcoTypes, as playthings to the wealthy and ruthless.

Miraluna Rose is its finest creation, but she has other ideas. She’s holed up at Refuge, a haven for ArcoTypes, where she’s planning a future of freedom for her sisters.

To help the ArcoTypes fight ReMe, Finder and the Parrot will need the help of a couple of sympathetic AIs, the CEO of the world’s largest advertising company and a posse of highly modded, celebrity-crazed media kids.

This exciting adventure is a must read for anyone concerned about where our world and humanity is possibly headed

A Word from the Author

Author susan kuchinskas photoInspired equally by the crime novels of Raymond Chandler and the gritty futurism of Blade Runner, Chimera Catalyst takes place in a California ravaged by drought and science. Finder is an old-school detective, equally expert at cracking code, biohacking and sweating suspects face-to-face. When he’s hired to track down Miraluna Rose, a gorgeous green-haired woman who disappeared from her luxurious home, he discovers that a corporation is illegally creating human/animal chimeras and selling them to wealthy elites.

It turns out that Miraluna Rose is one of ReMe’s chimeras. She’s escaped from her supposed owner and is leading a band of renegade chimeras in a fight to be recognized as human with full civil rights. To help them, Finder enlists the Parrot, a bird/dog chimera; an AI who wants to be a surfer; and two heavily-modded social media stars.
