The Sixth Helix
Trade paperback,237 pages
Trapped in a dead-end job in a city he hates, Conspiratorial Investigator Jake Nourth pins his hopes on solving the mystery of the missing Sixth Helix, a device that will unlock the secrets of space and time. One big score will free him from the twisted streets of Meld. As mystery piles upon mystery, it soon becomes apparent that Jake is over his head in an ocean of astrophysical theories and a rising wave of petty crime. But when the bodies pile up, Jake realizes there is a lot more at stake than his pending departure—his marriage, his reason and, maybe, his life.
