One nation, without God...
 
          Colton Pierce apprehends Abberants—those who display symptoms of faith—and quarantines them on a remote island to ensure public safety.  Years prior, the government released a genetically-engineered super flu that destroyed the genes believed to be the biological source of spiritual experience in an effort to rid the world of terrorism. As an extractor with the Center for Theological Control, Colton is dedicated to the cause.
          But Colton's steadfast commitment is challenged when he learns his own son has been targeted for extraction. An underground militia, the Remnant, agrees to help Colton save his son in exchange for his assistance with their plan to free the Aberrants on the island.
          Colton is faced with the most important decision of his life. Remain faithful to the CTC? Or give up everything to save his son?

Chapter 5 Excerpt

 

When Colton pulled his Lexus into his parking space at the rear of CTC Headquarters, he reminded himself that today was all business. He had a point to prove. He would dispel any notion that Ashton Lampson was a reasonable candidate for Chief Officer, and he would do it with unflinching authority.

“Very big day today,” Colton mumbled to himself as he stepped through the screening corridor.

A fatigued security officer sat behind a desk illuminated by several screens. He nodded approvingly when the first chime indicated that the NRNT chip in Colton’s skull identified him positively as Colton Pierce; a second chime indicated that he was unarmed. As a green light above the security monitor flashed on, the officer waved him through.

The door behind the security monitors unlocked, slowly hissed open, and Colton walked into the large lobby with marble floors, spiraling staircases, windows pouring in sunlight, and the general commotion of CTC workers running around like ants. Typical for a Monday morning.

Colton stepped over to one of the coffee machines to replenish his portable mug, and Kramer, half-looking down at his tablet and half-looking up at Colton, waddled up to him.

“Good morning, Kramer,” Colton said as he finished pouring himself a fresh cup. “Beautiful day out today, don’t you think?”

“Um, yes, if you say so.”

As usual, Kramer looked disheveled, slovenly dressed, with half of his white shirt tucked in and the other half hanging out. It seemed that Kramer employed all of his organizational talent on others but little, if any, on himself. In this way, Colton always found Kramer to be a contradiction. An interesting one. Kramer could probably tell Colton every appointment he had from now until his retirement, but at the same time, Kramer probably couldn’t tell anyone what he himself was doing day-to-day.

“Listen, we have some important business to get to today. We have that new hire in Extraction Team Seven. You need to do a personal interview. PR stuff. Doug wants a copy of your opinion by the end of the day. At least three Senior Extractors are needed before a final decision is made, and you’re the last one left.”

“Okay, let’s do that just before lunch. I’d like to walk around the offices for a little while. It’s been too long. I’d like to see what’s going on.”

Kramer looked down at his tablet, back to Colton, back to his tablet. Colton thought, by the look on Kramer’s face, that he had said something horribly offensive.

“Um, I’m afraid you don’t have time,” Kramer said. Now he was sweating, and he adjusted the tie that was already crooked to an even more crooked position. “They’re filming a public service announcement today—you know, typical PR stuff. We need you to say something. There’s some follow-up paperwork for your extraction last week regarding Josh Mosley. We need that before he can be sent off to the Quarantine Zone. And, of course, there’s been such a surge in calls these last several months, you could get a call any minute. You might need to suit up and leave.”

    1. I know, Pat. I can hardly read it, but I tried and tried, kept checking the NORMAL size text and blogger kept giving me the "small" print. I've never had this problem, but since they changed everything, it's not working so good for me. :(

    1. Happy to share your novel with others, William. Love the excerpt and look forward to reading it. Congratulations and best wishes. (Sorry about the tiny print, I tried to change it, and it looked good until I previewed the post. Never could get it to stay on the larger print.)
