Liquid Cool is the action-packed and funny, debut cyberpunk detective series! 

It’s cyberpunk reimagined—science fiction meets the detective thriller in an ever-rainy world of colossal skyscrapers. Hovercars fly above in the dark, bustling skies and gray people walk below on the grimy, flashy streets of this “neon jungle.” Metropolis isn’t a bad place, but it isn’t a good one either. Uber-governments and megacorporations fight for control of the super-city, but so does crime.

We were introduced to Liquid Cool, in the prequel short, These Mean Streets, Darkly. We met an average woman, Carol—hardworking and decent in every way—only to have her daughter kidnapped by the psycho cyborg Red Rabbit. Can Police Central find the girl in time—alive? And is it really another senseless act of random violence in the fifty-million-plus supercity? 

This story continues…and there are so many more. For the first time, we meet Cruz, our private eye (and unlikely hero), in a supercity with a million victims and perpetrators. Welcome to the high-tech, low-life world of Liquid Cool

But watch out for tech-tricksters, analog hustlers, and digital gangsters—psychos, samurais, and cyborgs aplenty—they may want your money, or your life, more than you do.

“Lots of shooting, lots of crazy maniacs, lots of action and fun!”

“I loved this book. It takes place in the future, and what a weird future.”

“A funny, intelligent (and sometimes crazy) main character…playing detective”

“Cool and Smooth.”

“I had a hard time putting this book down to do things like sleeping and eating.”

  • Sam Spade would recognize him!

    By RayAC
    When I first met Rick Deckhard in “Blade Runner”, I easily believed that here was the ultimate combination of mystery and sci-fi genres. Now I have had to revise my thinking. I have to give Austin Dragon my thanks for introducing me to Mr. Cruz who both Mr. Deckhard and Mr. Spade would both recognize as a kindred soul, a “Private Detective”.

    At first I thought it was so so. I stoped reading it. Then for some reason I read the reviews again. They mostly liked the story, so what the hell, I started reading it again. I’m glad I did. I enjoyed the story and going to buy the next book.

  • Cool ride through the meanest streets

    By sexyblacksmith
    Austin Dragon takes readers on a breakneck paced tour through mega-city Metropolis, courtesy of reluctant Detective Cruz. Cruz was hired by a friend to find out why a mutual friend was killed. He takes the job, but is not certain he wants to make it a career. As a neophyte detective, Cruz makes brilliant deductions on par with Sherlock Holmes and handles every situation easily, from shoot outs to dinner with his hostile future in-laws. As Cruz struggles to get to the bottom of the case and decide if he wants to make the title of detective permanent, we get glimpses of an interesting take on future society along the way. I definitely enjoyed the ride, and would happily take another cruise with Mr. Dragon.

    Though there is a prequel out that that gives a glimpse into this world, this is the first book in the cyberpunk detective series Liquid Cool. It does not end in a cliff hanger, but sets the stage for future books in the series. There is violence. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a good job of keeping a steady pace throughout the book to keep this reader interested. It kept you guessing what twists and turns would be revealed in the pages ahead. And there are plenty of twists, turns, and surprises in this story. The world that the author describes is futuristic with towering mega skyscrapers, hover cars and trucks. The setting is Metropolis and it is always raining. As is typical in these cities, those with money live "up top" in the taller buildings and the wealth and legitimacy of most businesses go down from there to street level. (If you have seen the movie Blade Runner, you have a good idea about what I imagine it would be like.) The main character, Cruz, is the most unlikeliest of Private Consultants. He'd be a Private Investigator/Detective if he could afford to get the license. He is a mishmash of characteristics - obsessive about the classic bright red Pony hovercraft he restored, always wears a tan coat (in my head it's a trench coat like Columbo wore) and fedora hat, extreme germaphobe, and won't stop when he wants something. This is definitely a series that I want to continue reading! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. But I would have purchased the book if I hadn't.
