dc.description.abstractChaser of Ghosts is a speculative novel. The story is set in Octopolis, Moscow Division, year 2115, and explores family, prejudice, and greed. During a routine campaign press conference, Nika Niles thwarts an assassination attempt on her mother’s life. Her mother thinks she will be safer with her father, so Nika travels with a retired black ops agent to visit her father’s geology lab, where not all is as it seems. Nika learns a life-changing secret about her family and a confirmed bachelor struggles to help her accept the truth, her identity, and the role of those who have lied to hide the past. Meanwhile, Nika’s mother, Kristian, is trying to stay alive. The state struggles to uncover the identity of Kristian’s enemy, who sends taunting, psychological threats. The violence against the citizens escalates. When evidence suggests that a business mogul is orchestrating assassination attempts and civilian massacres, the Niles and Evanovich families, along with their closest allies, must decide who to trust. After Kristian and a little boy are kidnapped, the two families receive unexpected help in their efforts to find the captives and defeat the mastermind before time runs out.
