Synopsis

7 stolen organs.
1 vengeful victim.
A gruesome sci-fi thriller.


Organ scrubbing was a bloody job, but somebody had to do it. Daniel, an orphan from the Gutter, was put to work scrubbing kidneys at aged twelve. The job had its perks: a warm bed, Law and Order reruns, and an all-you-can-eat Mopane worm buffet.

Until the Orphanage stole Daniel’s parts, and sold them on the organ market.

Now Daniel has grown up, and yearns to become whole again. The cybernetic organ replacements just aren’t the same – he needs his parts back. But the new owners of his organs won’t give them up. Not without a fight.

Just how far will Daniel go to regain his missing pieces? And how much more of himself will he lose along the way?

Defragmenting Daniel is a cyberpunk crime thriller that will unnerve you. Every part of you.

“A work of great imagination. Powerful and gripping.”
“A stark and moving experience.”

Teaser: Excerpt

     “Don’t worry about stepping on the limbs,” said Shoulders. “They’re crunchy underfoot, but you get used to it. Forensics cleared the scene before we got here.”
     Kage knelt down. Examined a hand. Such small fingers. He shivered.
     “Told you. No forensic traces on any of the limbs. No need to examine them. The vic fell from above.”
     Kage looked up. In silhouette above the mobile spotlights, he could barely make out the ceiling. But there it was, a few yards up. He thought he saw square outlines of light perforating the concrete ceiling every five yards or so, stretching ever deeper into the vast underground hall.
     Shoulders was on the move, ascending the mountain of human limbs. Kage followed. He scrabbled up the pile of arms and legs, toes and fingers, elbows and knees. He was surprised how yielding they were. How they bent under his weight. But Shoulders was right. He couldn’t ignore the crunch of breaking bones.
     “Why’d we legalize this?”
     Shoulders threw him a look. “Why not? They’re Gutter kids. This way at least the Bubble gets to have its fun without anyone getting hurt.”
     One of the hands twitched, and Kage almost lost his footing.
     Shoulders held Kage by the wrist. “Woah, you don’t want to be doing that. Those fingernails will rip you open if you land badly. Happened to Jensen just before you got here. Poor guy almost lost his cheek.” Shoulders shone a victory smile.
     “Thanks,” mumbled Kage.
     “Vic’s just on the other side of that ridge.” Shoulders pointed to a mound of limbs that looked a little fresher, a little more plump and moist, than the rest.
     Kage trudged on behind the Detective. Climbed the hillock of arms. Had to grab hold of more than one to ascend it.
     “What … what do they do with them?” asked Kage, breathing heavily under the mask. Beads of moisture condensed on the curve of his lower lip.
     “Do with what?”
     “The body parts?”
     “I hear they send the fresh ones for scrubbing. The rest …” Shoulders shrugged. “The vic’s over here.”
     More mobile spotlights, their metal poles staked in the pile of flesh around the body.
     Kage looked for the flashing red light at the bottom-right corner of his vision. Recording. Good.
     He knelt down. Pulled out a pair of gloves from his leather jacket pocket. He shuddered to think what the jacket would look like after this mess. But that wouldn’t matter if he solved this case. It was the Mayor’s brother. Captain Weeks would pay plenty to the investigator who solved this.

2 organs regained.

Daniel’s gruesome crusade continues.


Daniel has retrieved his cornea and knee, fled Thomsin’s apartment, and made an unlikely ally in Margaret Evans. But Margaret, a bloodthirsty android that hungers for human parts, is an unstable accomplice.

Pressure mounts, as Daniel searches for his tongue and lungs. All the while trying to avoid Kage and the Bubble Police Department, who draw ever closer to discovering the identity of the Organ Thief.

Daniel must tread carefully, or risk losing more than just his organs.

Keep your blood surging with this second installment of Defragmenting Daniel, and acquire a taste for murder.

The Boy Without a Heart [3]

5 organs regained.
2 organs away from becoming whole.
The bodies are piling up.


Time is running out for Daniel. Kage has discovered the Organ Thief’s identity, and is closing in. He has evaded Kage so far, but at a terrible cost – Daniel has lost his face.

He finds love with Autumn Beckett, who makes the search for his missing liver and amygdala more treacherous than he could have imagined. At the same time, cracks form in Daniel’s fragile alliance with Margaret, as he struggles to contain the android’s insatiable bloodlust.

To be truly whole again, Daniel must become more than the sum of his parts. But can he avoid falling to pieces in the process?

This third and final installment of Defragmenting Daniel erupts in a bloodbath that will skin you alive, bleed you out, and stitch you back together.
