It is the future, and while the world has changed, crime has not. In September, we announced Mimic, the second novel in The Identity Trilogy written by Mel Odom and set in the gritty, cyber-noir world of Android. The story of New Angeles Detective Drake 3GI2RC continues as he struggles with investigating a mysterious murder. Drake 3GI2RC must navigate the tangled web of lies and corruption that lay in wait around every corner.
Drake is not your average Bioroid. First, he’s one of the New Angeles Police Department’s few android cops, and second, he’s haunted by another man’s memories. But even as Drake investigates a very public crime, he must look inward for answers. After all, where does his programming end, and his own personality begin?
The first chapter of Mimic finds Drake exploring the memories Simon Blake. Within the labyrinth of Blake’s memory, Drake finds himself on vacation in a tropical locale on a beach with Blake’s wife, Mara.
The story unfolds as Drake tries to make sense of his actions within the context of events that have already happened. Download the first chapter of Mimic today (pdf, 258 KB) to begin to unravel the mystery surrounding Drake’s identity!
