When the River Ran Dry
The past collides with the future in this exciting and dark tale...
Earth, 2180. Society has risen again after the Fall, and city-states soar above the wreckage of a distant past. On the crowded streets of Novum, Ricky Mills runs the hustle, slipping past the MPE and Behavior Regulators to deliver illegal treasures his clients can't find for themselves. But the numbing grind brings him little joy, and a second existence--lived inside a powerful simulation--has become an unbreakable habit, leading to insurmountable debt. To pay back his debt--and stay alive--he embarks on a personal journey that involves desperate fear, the sacrifice of another, and a promise to fulfill an old man's dream. What Ricky discovers will change his life forever.

About the AuthorRobert Davies is a born-and-raised Michigan kid with an overactive imagination and love of literature that eventually became a disease, curable only through the odd, frustrating therapy of writing fiction. A Navy veteran, musician, private pilot and erstwhile traveler, he crossed oceans and countless borders to find and understand Earth, only to leave it behind in the pages of his first novel. Released from the University of Portland with a Bachelor's in Journalism, Rob has spent the last twenty years as a contract manager in the information technology and telecommunications industries. He currently lives in southwest Washington with his wife Stephanie, daughter Natalie and four mildly overbearing female tabbies.
