In a not-too-distant future, technology promises to solve any problem. Sentient robots, known as dolls, cook our food, clean our homes, watch our children, and provide companionship–but some have another function. They train as secret agents to keep the public safe. However, most people don’t know that the dolls have a secret: Each comes from a human mind, bought and sold on the black market. Rebecca, one of the dolls, performs highly dangerous tasks for the shadowy organization that employs her. This fascinating tale follows Rebecca as she trains for her new life.
In The Wonders at Your Feet, published by Dog Ear Publishing, a chance meeting brings FBI agent Dexter into Rebecca’s complex web of deception and a campaign of assassination of murderers who thought they had gotten away with their crimes. As he searches for a missing person who ran away to the Academy – the center where Rebecca trains – the agent learns things that could reveal the truth of the dolls… and change society forever. Their stories become intertwined, as a growing number of bodies and intrigue follow Rebecca and the other dolls. But only Rebecca and her organization stand between life continuing as it always has and chaos when the public learns the truth.
This is the exciting debut novel by Portsmouth, New Hampshire-based author Matthew Gold, and is the first volume of the The Academy series. “I have always been fascinated by the promise and risks associated with trans-humanism,” said Gold. “My new series brings the new opportunities that robots offer together with the moral and ethical challenges that freedom brings, along with the unintended consequences of one-way decisions. Oh, and there’s lots of adventure too!”
