The 1st Jen Lu/Cobalt Blue Mystery
Washington, DC. 2033. Bad things are happening in the nation's capital, but, then again, you just might say that about 2020. Climate change has hit hard, fires are burning, unemployment is high, and a longevity treatment is only available to the very rich and the very powerful. Enter resourceful young police detective, Jen B. Lu, and her 'partner', Chandler, an experimental SIM implant tucked into her brain. He's a wannabe tough guy, with a helluva sense of humor and his own ideas about solving crimes.
As a detective in the Elder Abuse unit, Jen is supposed to be investigating kids pushing their aging parents to "exit" so they are eligible for a modified version of the longevity drug. But what really has her attention are the persistent rumors about Eden, a black-market version of the longevity drug, and the bizarre outbreak of people aging almost overnight. Soon her own life will be in peril.
Exciting, dark at times, but fun and full of hope.
