It Isn't Murder If You're Killing The Right People

by Jeff Baas

Book Image Not Available
Overview

A computer generated “singular moment of vulnerability” determines the timing of a mass assassination of world leaders. Titans of industry, heads of state, government officials and media moguls are all taken down within minutes by long range sniper rifles. No one is captured. The prime suspect is the author of a novel that was essentially a “how to” manual. While the world spontaneously begins to celebrate, we flashback to the lead up to the event in a cutting edge adventure of intrigue and accident. There isn’t time to use intelligence and reason to convince mankind to change course. The power elite are so entrenched and the idiot lemming masses are arguing with each other as they head toward the cliff of extinction. The “MIM INDEX” has a solution: Surgical assassination. When we start taking out the assholes at the top, the other assholes, will realize that, unlike the past, there are finally serious personal consequences for the inhumanity their actions create. This is the story about what happens when a “How to manual” is published. This book is fact based fiction that has links to reality. Just like in the story, publishing this manuscript will help save an old movie palace in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The true saga of this modern ruin and it’s current plight is woven into a plot where the restoration of grand buildings is a metaphor for a larger theme. There are links to the music written and performed by the author’s 18 year old son and the theatre web sites all of which are sub-plots int the book. The MIM index story has political intrigue, conspiracies, super computer hacking, privacy law violations, futuristic video gaming and a cast of edgy techno young adults working with their older cohorts. A strong female lead works to solve the puzzle of which she becomes an important piece. The narrative lets the reader ponder their own personal hit list. It is very cathartic.

Description

“THE MIM INDEX” by Jeff Baas It isn’t murder if you’re killing the right people. A computer generated “singular moment of vulnerability” determines the timing of a mass assassination of world leaders. Titans of industry, heads of state, government officials and media moguls are all taken down within minutes by long range sniper rifles. No one is captured. The prime suspect is the author of a novel that was essentially a “how to” manual. While the world spontaneously begins to celebrate, we flashback to the lead up to the event in a cutting edge adventure of intrigue and accident. There isn’t time to use intelligence and reason to convince mankind to change course. The power elite are so entrenched and the idiot lemming masses are arguing with each other as they head toward the cliff of extinction. The “MIM INDEX” has a solution: Surgical assassination. When we start taking out the assholes at the top, the other assholes, will realize that, unlike the past, there are finally serious personal consequences for the inhumanity their actions create. This is the story about what happens when a “How to manual” is published. This book is fact based fiction that has links to reality. Just like in the story, publishing this manuscript will help save an old movie palace in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The true saga of this modern ruin and it’s current plight is woven into a plot where the restoration of grand buildings is a metaphor for a larger theme. There are links to the music written and performed by the author’s 18 year old son and the theatre web sites all of which are sub-plots int the book. The MIM index story has political intrigue, conspiracies, super computer hacking, privacy law violations, futuristic video gaming and a cast of edgy techno young adults working with their older cohorts. A strong female lead works to solve the puzzle of which she becomes an important piece. The narrative lets the reader ponder their own personal hit list. It is very cathartic. THE MIM INDEX After their family disintegrated, Jake Hughes and his teenage son Peter consciously decided to channel their emotional energy toward creative projects. Peter began to write and record music and Jake wrote a powder keg political fiction novel outlining a strategy toward world peace through the “decapitation” of the world’s rich and powerful. The book riles the leaders of the powerful shadow government and a sinister industrial cabal. Their retaliation sends Jake and Agent Tara Smith, talented computer hacker for the NSA, running for their lives in a high tech battle of wits. Found guilty of MIM (Man’s Inhumanity to Man,) the victim’s fate had been determined by a web site where people of the world voted, vetted and created a “deck of cards” similar to those used by the Bush administration during the opening days of the Iraq war featuring the most wanted. The web site, and other support sites, however were originally launched only as marketing tools for Jake’s book. The authenticity of the sites along with some coercing from the cabal, convince a middle eastern leader to send a hit squad to take out the fictional Mim Index “team “ that, in reality, was just the five video and web designers of the small production house that the author operated out of an abandoned 1920’s movie palace in Kenosha, Wisconsin. After the failed “terrorist attack” on the band of plucky computer nerds, the world turns to the hoax sites and their disinformation goes viral. The fictional pages of the book become reality as the plot unfurls involving the NSA, FBI, & CIA in Chicago, Dubai and Kenosha, It is a tale of high tech communications and conspiracy, in a fast paced adventure that accidentally changes the world.
