Z Ellis has always believed he is the twin brother of mass murderer Adam Russo, even though Z was adopted by a loving family when he was five. What he doesn't know is that he and Adam are actually the same person and that a special department of the FBI—the Eradication of Violent Crimes—has overwritten his memories with new ones through a bio-software program called Tracer in the hopes of creating a model citizen out of the Charles Manson-like mass murderer. The experiment has been successful for ten years.

But when Z witnesses a car accident and the woman dies in his arms, the sensory experience triggers shadows of real memories, leaving Z to wonder if he is going as insane as his brother.

Z is contacted by FBI Agent Gage McAlister, an agent who has been on administrative leave for the past three years following the accidental shooting of a teenager. Gage is the architect of the Tracer bio-software and the one responsible for writing Z's new memories. His responsibility for the teenager's death has made him question his judgment about everything, including taking away Adam Russo's free will by overwriting his memories.

Even as Z begins to discover who he is, Gage himself is on a journey to make things right, even if it means restoring the memories and motivations of a mass murderer.

About the Author

Cher Smith began her writing career when she was eight years old, folding over notebook paper to look like a book. While her novel "Lazy Bones" was never finished, she never lost the love of creating characters and placing them in awkward, mysterious, dangerous or romantic situations, sometimes all at once.She has a master's degree in philosophy of religion and taught philosophy and English for a few years. She has been in marketing and publishing for most of her adult career and designs and maintains websites in her spare time.Her first published novel, The Falcon and the Serpent (1990), fell in the fantasy genre, but her writing career has grown considerably beyond that single genre into more contemporary and literary works, including Justified Means, a quirky comedy-drama that follows a pastor’s wife along a Robin Hood-like adventure. She has published numerous articles, including three entries for The St. James Encyclopedia of Popular Culture (the television show Home Improvement, the Coors mystique, and Playgirl magazine), movie reviews for Infuze Magazine and several feature stories for Colorado Country Life magazine. She also co-authored a nonfiction book about the changing demographics in America.Cher Smith is the founder, editor and chief instigator at Dead Key Publishing. It is her desire to bring novels -- hers and others -- to readers who love books.
