After a 200-day suspension, all that Sergeant Adam Jennings wanted was a win on his return to the Global Investigation Bureau (GIB). But when a simple warehouse fire begins to look more like a homicide investigation, he is forced to watch as the entire case begins to unravel, slowly revealing the dark underbelly of a world that should not exist. Saddled with an unwanted new partner, and a tarnished reputation, Jens is forced to tread a thin line between right and wrong as he tries to discover just what the truth really is.
Author Jonny Thompson takes readers on a futuristic journey with Adam Jennings, a disgraced sergeant with the Global Investigations Bureau. He’s fresh off a suspension with a less-than-cheerful attitude.
Ash and Sun takes place after World War III and the Silent Death, together taking out 62 percent of the global population. In a time when people’s lives are measured in days rather than years, and technological advances have reached new levels, crime still happens.
Jennings and his new partner, Ali, are tasked with investigating a warehouse fire that they suspect is a homicide. Finding a link between the warehouse and the mayor shatters any hopes Jennings has of keeping a low profile.
The deeper they go into the investigation, the more complicated it gets. Soon, they discover information that will rock the city if they live long enough to release it.
As the author’s debut novel, Ash and Sun contains plenty of adventures. Although there is an indication that a second novel is in the works, the story has a natural conclusion without an abrupt cliffhanger. Part science fiction, part police procedural, Ash and Sun delivers a unique reading experience.
