The Avatar Murders

A Kurt Hardash Mystery

By Jim Rowson

The Avatar Murders is a classic noir story in a near-future setting. A detective in a seedy office. A femme fatale whose attempts to seduce Kurt Hardash, private investigator, leave him alternately tingling and wracked with unresolved guilt about the loss of his wife. Organized crime. Corporate espionage. The unethical exploitation of cutting-edge technology. A cast of characters motivated by greed, lust, and power. A world rife with corruption.

Kurt lost the love of his life to a nasty pandemic. It may be man made. He has a serious problem with that.

Kurt’s long time detective friend draws him into a high profile multiple murder case to distract him from his grief. Thrust into the sleazy world of digital high fashion, he’s hired to protect the CEO of an avatar company, the biggest supplier of augmented beauty to the rich and famous.

When he uncovers a complex conspiracy, Kurt becomes a target for the corrupt police force and an ambitious mob.

He’s after the pandemic creator to avenge his wife, but first he has to stand up to the vicious mob that wants to control him. Or kill him. His choice.

The Avatar Murders is now available on Amazon in hardcoverpaperback, and Kindle editions.
