Talk About Pop Travel

POP TRAVEL by Tara Tyler
Released July 7, 2013 from Curiosity Quills
Find it on Amazon

In 2080, technology has gone too far for J. L. Cooper. He is happily hidden in his simple, secluded life as a private detective in a small town, far from any pop travel laser teleportation stations. Until he takes on a client who insists pop travel made his fiancé disappear.

When Cooper investigates, he finds evidence of pop travel's deadly flaw, sparking a series of murders, attempts on his life, and threats to his brother. He’d like to pass off the evidence but knows he’s being watched and can’t trust anyone. And who would believe him?

The only way he can save his brother is to fool his observers while looking for a way to expose the problem. He decides to go to the source and confront the Creator of pop travel. On his way, Cooper meets Southern siren, Geri Harper (an undercover FBI agent) who tags along despite his protests. When they reach the Creator, he has plans of his own and leads them on a wild detour.

I love it when my cat tries to cram herself into a tiny little box. Always good for a laugh.

And congrats to Tara!

Nap? What's that? Sir Poops is definitely taking one beside me. He got up this morning, got a drink, did his pee, ate some kibble, and then curled up on the couch on his pillow.

Tweeted!

Hugs and chocolate,
Shelly

Congratulations to Tara!
And I do want to take a nap.

Neat, a SciFi mystery! Sounds VERY interesting. Congratulations. I think sleeping in the box might be more relaxing that thinking outside the box. :)

Love that cover!

Jay Noel said...

Teleporting would be scary! What if there's a power outage in mid-teleport?

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Mary, aren't they all special cats?

Jay, that is a scary thought.

This story made me wonder if pop travel might be a good energy efficient alternative! But the sinister undertone could be a problem...

Intriguing book, Tyler!
