(?   -    ) US journalist and author, whose forensics-based crime series as by D H Dublin edges towards but does not actually enter Technothriller country. He is of sf interest for his Spliced sequence beginning with Spliced (2017), set in a Near Future world where Genetically Engineered "chimeras", part-human part-animal, are implicated in the rise of a populist presidential candidate with clear links to a terrorist organization known as CLAD; Climate Change is pervasive and obvious, but taken as a given.
