About Prisoner (Book Two):
Trav Becker is a police detective with multiple lives. Or to be more accurate, he’s a police detective who knows that multiple versions of himself live in countless different streams of existence.
When another Trav Becker appears bleeding and dying at his front door, Trav quickly realizes that something is dreadfully wrong in the multiverse.
Pursued by an FBI profiler who believes (with some justification) that Trav is hiding something, the detective races to save two kidnapped girls while also trying to sort out why he keeps turning up dead.
Desperate to preserve his home timeline, Trav is thrust into a hidden war that threatens to destroy the very fabric of reality itself.
Dennis Green returns to the universe he created in "Traveler" for another mindbending thriller.
BRIGHT, arterial blood spurted from the shoulder of the man standing at my door. It contrasted with a darker stain that soaked his abdomen. The arm that wasn’t gushing blood was wrapped around the stomach wound, trying to hold his guts in.
He swayed a couple of times and crumpled to the ground.
I managed to catch him before he hit, lowering him to the floor as gently as I could. I cradled his head as his mouth worked, but all that came out was a rusty wheeze.
“Don’t try to talk,” I said. “I’ll get help.”
He focused on me with some difficulty, reaching for the collar of my shirt with a bloody hand. He pulled me close to his face.
“They’re coming,” he whispered again.
I gently laid his head back and placed the hand that had grabbed my shirt on his chest. I laid two fingers on his neck to verify there was no pulse, but I knew there was no life remaining in his blank, staring eyes.
I rocked back on my haunches and regarded the dead man on my living room floor.
I knew him. His name was Trav Becker. Thirty-two, eleven year veteran of our town’s police department, last four of those a detective. Single, but with a girlfriend totally out of his league. He was thinking of asking her to tie the knot.
I knew he’d broken his elbow jumping off a play set at his eighth birthday party.
I knew that he was still coming to terms with the death of his dad, even though it had been more than two years.
And that he was now strictly a beer drinker because of some very unpleasant memories involving vodka.
I knew a lot more about him than that.
In fact, I knew everything about him.
Because Trav Becker is also my name.
And this was not the first time I had found myself staring at my own dead body. In fact, it wasn’t even the first time in this room.
It is not something you get used to.
Blending mystery, police procedural and scifi, Traveler is a thriller in the tradition of Daniel Suarez and Dean Koontz, with just a dash of Jim Butcher.
Police detective Trav Becker can travel between parallel realities. So can other versions of him. And one is systematically killing every Trav he can find. Trav must fight to keep the very fabric of time itself from unwinding as he hunts the most dangerous quarry of all... himself.
Dennis Green's first novel, the scifi detective thriller, Traveler, ranked in the Top Ten in the 2014 Ben Franklin Independent Publishing awards, and has a 4.9 review average on Amazon. The second volume of The Traveler Chronicles, Prisoner, has just been released.
Trav Becker's saga concludes in the final volume of the trilogy, Hunter, due in 2017. A popular radio personality in his native Iowa, Dennis's adventures as a DJ were covered by newspapers from Anchorage to Los Angeles. He has also worked on the stage, TV, and independent film.
Dennis's writing has appeared in the anthology Sadistic Shorts, magazines including Grift, and Romance and Beyond, as well as his own blog at denniswgreen.com. By day, he is the general manager of Iowa's only jazz radio station, KCCKFM. And if it's 5:30 am, you can probably find him in the pool, working out with the Milky Way Masters swim club.
