Details

A disgraced ex-cop desperate to survive in a world destroyed by climate change makes a terrifying discovery in this dystopian series debut.

It’s the year 2031. A world decimated by climate catastrophe, where the sun’s heat is deadly and the ocean rises higher every day. A world ruled by the rich, powerful, and corrupt. A world where a good man can’t survive for long . . .

Hogan Duran was a good man once. He was a cop, forced to resign in disgrace when he couldn’t save his partner from a bullet. Now Hogan lives on the fraying edges of society, serving cruel masters and scavenging trash dumps just to survive.

But after four years of living in poverty, Hogan finally gets a chance to get back on his feet. He’s invited to join the National Security Council, the powerful paramilitary organization responsible for protecting the rich and powerful from the more unsavory elements of society. All he needs to do is pass their deadly entrance exam, and he’ll be rewarded with wealth and opportunity beyond his wildest dreams.

But this ex-cop’s path to redemption won’t be easy. The NSC are hiding something, and as Hogan descends deeper and deeper into their world, he starts to uncover the terrible truth of how the powerful in this new world maintain their power . . . and just how far they will go to protect their secrets.

In a world gone wrong, can one man actually make a difference, or will he die trying?

Great for fans of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, and Divergent by Veronica Roth.

Praise for Kill Code

“Well paced with plenty of plot twists and double crosses. Characters are portrayed in a realistic and relatable way. The story is a fun, fast-paced read and even hints at romance (if you’re into that sort of thing). . . . This book is a major win for Clive Fleury! You can tell that the author has passion for many of the social issues pertaining to our day. Can’t wait to see what comes next!” —Nicky Flowers, Indies Today
