Ghost Patrol

Watermarked PDF

Ghost Patrol is a tense Science-Fiction thriller about perception, control and the nature of humanity.

The New World Federation is a strictly regimented space-dwelling society where the greatest reward is the absence of punishment. Mind-control and behavioural programming are the underpinnings of the society. Earth, the Fed's hated enemy, is a Commonwealth where simulated humans make up a large portion of the population.

Angel 761-MT is an aberration among the identically featured, genetically engineered members of the New World. Like every other Fed, his psyche has been manipulated literally from the moment of conception. Everything about him is different, however: his appearance, his physical potential, his mind's responses to the standard Fed sleeptape programming...

Ghosts ripple beneath the surface of Angel's conscious awareness - seen and unseen, known and unknown, real and unreal. They are the key to many of his talents, and crucial to his survival, but they can be dangerously treacherous, too. When the Earthies capture him, he is handed over to the Commonwealth's top Fed deprogrammer for ‘reclamation', but no-one, not even Angel himself, knows that his programming has been badly damaged all along.

Angel finds himself pitched head-first into a vicious game of psychological cat-and-mouse that threatens to destroy his mind at every turn. Whilst he struggles to determine reality, we have to decide the line between persuasion and torture, between loyalty and love - and, finally, ask ourselves what makes a human... human?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
