Picking Up Plans in Palma

Connor Kelly is running for his life.

He’s on a mission to deliver a memory card containing secret orbital battle plans to the Italian consulate in Palma. But being an American spy in the Afrikaner Confederation is making success less and less likely by the second. Particularly when Connor’s history of fraternization with Boer traitor Katje de Lange comes to light. 

Just when Connor thinks he will escape, he’s captured by Afrikaner spy Eugene Visser and Katje’s disgruntled father. Can Connor escape from the whole of State Security? Judging by the last agent’s demise, things aren’t looking good. 

This high-octane dystopian thriller provides a stunning snapshot into a nightmarish alternate history. 

Picking Up Plans in Palma is cyberpunk at its best. Every sentence packs a powerful punch. You’ll hold your breath to the very end. This tale is sure to get under your skin. And your nails.

Fleeing the city of New York on the TransContinental atmospheric transport, Dran Florrian is traveling with Palimpsest: the ultimate proof of a lifetime of scientific theorizing.

When a rogue organization attempts to steal the device, however, Dran takes drastic action.

But his invention threatens to destroy the very fabric of this and all other possible universes, unless Dran – or someone very much like him – can shut down the machine and reverse the process.
