Dark Mind Rising

What will you give to feel safe?

Two years after the destruction of a universal surveillance system called the Intercept, New Earth struggles to keep crime under control. The citizens are free, but not protected.

Violet Crowley, the eighteen-year-old daughter of New Earth's founder, has opened Crowley & Associates, a private detective agency, to handle the overflow from the overburdened police force.

Violet's first case - a death written off as a suicide - because an obsession. Soon a series of similar deaths leads Violet to believe the Intercept is not only still running - it's in the hands of a killer.
