Enter an Orwellian Earth a thousand years in the future. The year is 2984, in which a critically injured young Ph.D. in Biochemistry is recuperating after a serious lab accident. The accident, coupled to two years of hospitalization and advanced revivifying techniques, has caused Dr. David Killan to lose much of his early memory; thus he must be re-educated in the current, far-reaching governmental system known as The Code, an expansive legislation enacted in the mid-third millennium to control society following the bloody War Epoch of the 19th to 23rd centuries. But The Code itself is naturally unfamiliar to the recently rejuvenated Dr. Killan, which causes him to question its foundation and the "perfected" society it has begotten. Neither does David recall the ubiquitous "M" monorail network, whose glistening rails bind the planet together in a labyrinthian transportation web. Still other mysteries unveil themselves to him in the huge megalopolises where no animals dare to roam, and where government considers it dangerous and "mal-Adaptive" to wander outside in the fresh air and sunlight. Befriending only his beautiful nurse guide, Sellene, David Killan sets out to unearth the secrets of this mystifying and paradoxical civilization which has subsumed the world, the world of 2984. About the Author: R. Vincent Riccio is a psychologist and business consultant in New Haven, Connecticut. He is currently engaged in writing his next book, Time Locked, about a man who has visions of unchangeable future events, and finds himself powerless to change fate.
