We are delighted to reveal the cover for the action-packed techno-thriller The Chimera Code by Wayne Santos, available in eBook from July 2020 and paperback in November 2020.

“A full-throttle magical cyberpunk superhero thriller.” – Peter McLean

“Stylish, bad-ass, and above all immersive… Every line sings of holographs and sprawling megapolis, every sentence is an offering to cyberpunk gods.” – Edgar Cantero

Everything’s for hire – even magic.

If you need something done, Cloke’s one of the best; a mercenary with some unusual talents and an attitude to match. But when she’s hired by a virtual construct to destroy the other copies of himself, and the down payment is a new magical skill, she knows this job is going to be a league harder than anything she’s ever done.

An action-packed techno-thriller with a side of magical realism from a bold new voice in genre fiction.

The Chimera Code is book one of the WitchWare series.
