About Rise of the Familia Umbra: A Detective Vince O’Neill Novel by Ralph R. Joseph
A psychic assault. A murder. An abduction. Crimes that threaten to de-stabilize and overthrow the current government.
It’s 2250 in Los Angeles, but this is not any Los Angeles you would know. This Los Angeles is a city that is part of a Federation of Cities. Cities that employ anti-gravity technology to allow them to hover safely above the surface of the Earth. An Earth that has been devastated by a cataclysmic global war.
Detective Vince O’Neill of the LAPD has been assigned to investigate these crimes, but is this more than the young detective can handle? The investigation leads Vince to uncover the sheer darkness of an ancient criminal organization. An organization that has been lurking in the underworld since the cataclysmic world war which devastated Earth.
Ultimately the trail leads to the supposedly lifeless surface of the planet. No Federation citizen has set foot on the surface in nearly a century. Vince and his team must get to the surface before it is too late.
