A new release from thriller writer JA Carlton, called “Wednesday’s Child”, takes place within our own future and is based on the tech and timbre of today’s social, political and economic climates, but the battles waged on its pages are timeless.
Austin, TX, October 05, 2011 - “Wednesday’s Child”, the first in Carlton’s “Freedom Fighter” series, is set in 2055. The United States as we know it today lays dead and bloody on the face of the earth. A series of seemingly coincidental disasters have forced world leaders to mark the U.S. as a global “No fly” zone and ensured the closure of the country’s borders.
With his country sealed off from prying eyes, a narcissistic madman pursues his personal and political quest to be recognized as ‘The man who out-designed God’.
The story’s hero is Jade McKay, a genetically engineered ‘super-soldier’ who knows nothing of the enemy’s plans for her destiny as the new “Eve”.
Stolen before birth by the scientists commanded to create her, Jade was raised among the struggling survivors of an engineered apocalypse, learning the nature of her enemy without ever knowing the truth of her own origins. One moment in a hidden mountain base has given her access to the true agenda that simply began with the U.S. but has no plans to stop until every nation on the globe has been ‘re-designed’.
With time running out Government agents will do anything they can from torture to blackmail, to get Jade back into their clutches before she can inform the world about the government’s true plans. They even go so far as to send an agent back in time to ensure there is nowhere for the scientists to escape to before Jade is born.
Carlton’s blatant comparison of the ramifications of today’s partisan political antics, and the harm it’s causing to the American citizenry, paints a dark portrait of government sanctioned genocide. The very real possibility that today’s citizens are fighting for not just basic human rights, but the very right to exist is at the heart of the story.
