SCREENSHOT - Bonus Edition

This edition includes a bonus feature – Part One of John’s new book, The Rockets’ Red Glare, a blockbuster thriller about simultaneous dirty bomb attacks on America disguised as July 4th fireworks displays.

Eighteen fifty-caliber rounds from the hidden automatic weapon shred the bricks and beams of the building, and the drug dealer standing in front of it. Lightning flashes from the parked truck and locks onto an infamous pedophile, thrashing him around like a rodeo cowboy on an angry bull, leaving him smoking, and just about medium-rare. A rocket propelled grenade lifts a three-ton SUV off the ground, and gravity returns it, leaving the terrorist and his entourage inside looking like s’mores scattered in the wreckage. The swimming pool suddenly becomes alive with electricity, and the mobster and his mistress struggle to escape as each pulse slams their bodies, and they decide to just float, face-down.
Screenshot is on the air, and for a modest fee, you can watch it all happen on your computer. Real. Live. Interactive.
Every week, Screenshot offers up a new execution, the live, real-time murder of someone who probably deserves it. Each bizarre weapon is hand-crafted in his high-tech lair. Each execution done remotely by a lucky guest assassin. And all of it hidden in the virtual world of the Internet, impenetrable.
Seth Mathias is drawn into the events by his reporting job, and his past history with violent death. As his own investigation, assisted by a rogue FBI computer geek and the revolutionary ideas of a discredited scientist, gets closer to the truth, Screenshot targets this band of pursuers for a new weapon. At the same time, the FBI itself becomes suspicious of their activities, sending its agent to round them up for some questions of their own. Questions whose answers will land them all in jail.
So the race is on, and second place is last place.
