More about Kathleen:
Born in Boston, Kathleen has lived in Phoenix, Arizona for the past twenty years. She was co-Salutatorian of her Rio Salado College graduating class (1995) with her late husband. She has spent her professional life working with computers-from teaching computer programming to her last position as Chief Information Officer for a major weapons manufacturer. Although her novel, MALIGNED, is fiction, much of the technology in the story is inspired by her work, and by the work of her late husband who was a member of the intelligence community prior to founding his own computer consulting firm. Kathleen is also the author of a number of short stories, commercial communications and advertising releases. Visit her website at www.kathleenpapajohn.com
Phoenix is simmering in the heat of a lazy July morning in 2195 when the execution-style murder of a young boy shatters the complacency of a population that hasn’t seen anyone die from natural causes for almost two centuries.
Enter Malcolm Godfrey, a darkly brilliant alpha-male with an axe to grind. Malcolm’s insatiable appetite for power, money and women have made him a highly intelligent monster who is plotting the ultimate corporate take-over, a coup d’état. He believes that he is the chosen one, but there is just one more loose end to tie up before the final stage of his sinister plan can be put into motion. When Malcolm frames the beautiful wife of an ex-black ops specialist for murder, he finds that he has created an inescapable web of corporate deceit, danger and intrigue that culminates finally in a battle for mankind itself.
