CatNet: The Crow King Master

by Jack Nixon

Jack Nixon is author, economist, clairvoyant, wine taster, football pundit and contributor of fake news (to family and bartenders). So, this book has all the ingredients to be an alright read…

The Crow King Master is the ninth in Jack Nixon’s CatNet series (the other eight yet to be published). If you like it then do look out for Three Weeks Dead (on its way, soon). Time is not linear, you know.

If you are a lover of humorous science fiction and enjoy a pan-dimensional romp through time and cyberspace, epic battles, satire, social commentary, pop culture references and strong characters, then you will laugh your way through CatNet. Don’t worry if you don’t like cats because Samuel L Catkins doesn’t particularly like them either, even though he is one.

An alternate reality is under threat of annihilation. The centre of this reality is New Britton, which materialises at the precise instance when a very special, malware-hunter, killer bot’s uploaded to cyberspace. Special, because this particular hunter is a human being reduced to code. His mission is to hunt down and kill pernicious AI malware, which had proven to be immune to all the conventional antivirus software thrown at it. The Satan Code, the most malign of these ever to be uploaded, has the power to destroy worlds.

Sam had one of those â??jolt awake’ moments. In the dream he’d been having, he was falling from the roof of a tall building of impossible height. He awoke with a crystal-clear certainty that he was on a mission to save the world, although he was not sure what, or who, he was supposed to save it from – let alone how he was meant to do it. He had been programmed with vital details pertaining to his mission, but a glitch wiped clean the entire plan and all traces of his previous existence. The only vestige of memory remaining was that there had been a plan, but nothing more.

He had a lifetime of other memories, yet he had the feeling that everyone he had ever met and everything he’d ever seen, or done, all happened yesterday; not as â??in the past’, but actually yesterday. It was as though time had literally begun the instant he hit the ground and it had come fully loaded with a past, present and future (but not necessarily in that order).

Soon, it became clear that there was a dark menace hell-bent on destroying this reality. His nemesis came in the form of Satan who’s armed with huge teeth and a hugely powerful weapon of mass destruction. All that Sam’s left with was a notion that, as a cat, he’s uniquely gifted with the tools to get the job done. However, he was going to need help from a vast network of fellow cats and the power of his own secret weapon: CatNet. But would that be enough?

It was to be a race against time and a battle to the death.
