Icon's Request
by Gareth Wiles

Icon’s Request is the gripping follow up to I Am Dead by thriller sci-fi novelist Gareth Wiles, in which Peter Smith created a world ravaged by madness.

The mysterious Reaping Icon is collecting psychopaths for his games and requests the pleasure of Peter. In his life since I Am Dead, Peter is a murderer, driven insane by the book he wrote. However, when Reaping Icon casts him into another reality, it ironically gives Peter a fresh chance to start anew. But how many people must suffer around him as the world rejects this path, and how many times can he dodge death as everyone is out for blood?

In part one, Reaping Icon collects his psychopaths and we get a snapshot of their disturbed lives just prior to his arrival. In part two, Peter Smith’s memory is wiped and he finds himself embroiled in a murder investigation, hunted by both the police and the psychopaths who are following Reaping Icon’s request. In part three, we learn more about what happened just after the events of I Am Dead and the devastating effect it has had on the universe. In part four, Peter is once again hunted by psychopaths and involved in yet more bizarre, seemingly random murders. Will he regain his memory in time, or will remembering who he really is be his ultimate downfall?

Icon’s Request, which has been inspired by Joseph Conrad, Franz Kafka and Albert Kamus, will appeal to fans of sci-fi/fantasy fiction who question the madness and randomness of modern society. It delivers real people struggling with real problems, mixing fantasy and crime to demonstrate how close all our lives are to the fantastical, and how the lines between reality and fiction can be easily blurred.
