Magnus Nights – The Helios Incident Synopsis:

Outgunned, outnumbered, and the clock’s ticking.

Police are being gunned down in the streets, incinerated by advanced weapons that no criminal should have.

Detective Constable Craddock and Detective Sergeant Augustine of Taskforce Bloodhound must find the source of the weapons at any cost.

But there are powerful forces who benefit from the chaos. A soldier without an enemy. An executive with everything to lose. A gangster who smells opportunity. A shadowy figure after more than money.

And it may be too late to stop them.

A futuristic crime noir novel that will hook you in from the start.

Reviews for Magnus Nights: The Helios Incident by Bryn Smith.

Magnus Nights: The Helios Incident is gritty sci-fi noir which crackles with sharp writing and whiplash pacing. Hitting the signature notes of the futuristic hard-boiled detective tale with aplomb, this book is a stylish, entertaining ride from start to finish.’ 

Geneve Flynn, Bram Stoker Award-winning editor and author.

‘A next generation political crime thriller hardwired with sci fi elements and corruption that spins all the way to the top. Absolutely riveting from start to finish.’ 

L. E. Daniels, Author of Serpent’s Wake: A Tale for the Bitten.

‘Gritty, fast-paced. Some of the best action scenes I’ve ever read. Set aside a weekend, you won’t want to put this one down.’ 

Cate Sawyer, Author.

‘A futuristic, crime noir that hooked me in from the first page and didn’t let go. It was from the first action scene of the main two characters that I became truly invested in this narrative, and the consequences of that fight are felt throughout the novel in that Craddock himself gains what appears to be a trauma response to some of what he had seen there, which is a very interesting touch to his character. I’m tossing up between 4.5/5 or 5/5… If it gets the film deal I hope it gets I’ll definitely bump it up to 5 stars!’ 

Nita Delgado, Editor & Reviewer.

Magnus Nights: The Helios Incident masterfully switches between seemingly unconnected characters to craft a story that culminates in an action-packed finale, full of twists and turns that all eventually come together for a shocking end reveal.’ Read the full review here.
