Your thoughts are not your own . . . . . . In the not-too-distant future, freedom is just a word that you willingly trade for a dozen donuts, based on the dubious promise that you can eat what you want and never gain weight. You can also take drugs with no ill effects or call a friend while surfing the web without a phone or computer. All this and more will be yours following the simple installation of a P-Chip in your brain. After botching the arrest of the governor's son in Los Angeles, Commander Jake Travissi is banned from law enforcement. The workaholic homicide cop spirals into depression...until he is given a rare second chance. The price? Volunteer for chip implantation and join Homeland Security's experimental Enhanced Unit. The grisly assassination of a prominent Nobel Laureate brings the newly formed Unit on the scene to investigate. But as the body count rises, Jake begins to realize that his actions, and even his thoughts, are not his own. Fighting to regain control of his own State of Mind, Jake finds himself embroiled in a global conspiracy to enslave the human race State of Mind is a cyberpunk thriller inspired by tales crafted by Philip K. Dick and William Gibson. The novel is the first installment of "The God Head Trilogy," which is a darker interpretation of Ray Kurzweil's Singularity Theory. If you liked The Matrix, Blade Runner, Inception, and Avatar, you'll love State of Mind.
