A FEW INCHES. A MISSED SHOT. A CHANGED WORLD.

It's January 1964. A twist of fate has saved the life of President John F. Kennedy and changes the arc of history. Political intrigue and infighting roils Washington in the wake of the assassination attempt in Dallas, and a wounded Kennedy returns to the White House to face a growing crisis in Vietnam that threatens America's Cold War strategy. The president doesn't trust the information he is getting from Saigon, where the military is engaged in a shadow operation to make things seem better than they really are.

So he turns to the one man he does trust: Lt. Colonel Patrick O'Shea. A decorated combat veteran of Korea, O'Shea has been plucked from obscurity to be Kennedy's military advisor, and is tasked by the president to figure out what is really going on in Vietnam.

The knives come out as O'Shea grapples with myriad threats to himself and the president he serves. The Pentagon, the CIA, the Corsican Mafia and the Chicago Mob are all conspiring against him.

Fate has handed John F. Kennedy a new lease on life. How will he use this opportunity to deal with the divisive and destructive issue of Vietnam? Will he escalate the war or get out? Tens of thousands of lives hang in the balance!

The debut novel by Ken Davenport, The Two Gates is an exciting new addition to the military, presidential and alternative history tradition of W.E.B. Griffin, David Baldacci, Harry Turtledove and Philip Roth.

DESCRIPTION:

"Killip has the ability to create and tell stories that are radically different than the ones we heard in the past." - Israel Drazin, VINE VOICE

The threat of a funding cut from the shadowy government agency supporting the Lazarus Project - a quantum machine that can emulated the human mind -leaves scientists Hammond Hinkley and Addison Royale in a predicament: demonstrate quick (and militarily useful) results to their backers or watch the plug pulled on the project that has preoccupied them for so many years. This leads to the hasty decision to digitise Hammond's mind into Flux, his own largely untested machine, despite the risks known and unknown.

After some initial orientation complications, Hammond's virtual-world journey starts well enough. London is transformed into a lurid psychedelic dreamscape of shiny towers and sex orgies as Hammond finds growing confidence living as his cyber self. The Shard becomes his office replete with rooftop helipad, while the Dungeon of Unrestrained Desire allows him to explore all the perverse pleasures he can imagine, free from the constraints of real world relationships (and physics). But this heady pleasure trip doesn't last long in this contemporary British science fiction story and one of the most exciting debut novels of 2017.

Fueling digital Hammond's ascent to megalomania is the assistant Gary, the remnant of an earlier experimental subject digitized into Flux who becomes his Man Friday. Also within Flux a commanding boss like character called Shinkley, weirdly distorted versions of his wife, his best friend and an Irish Wolf Hound who represents his animal soul.

Back in the real world, there is an undercurrent of sexual tension with Hammond's desire for colleague Addison Royale, who seems oblivious to his mildly flirtatious behavior. This passion looms large in the Flux version of Hammond, while his actual wife and newborn child are relegated to a mere robotic nuisance. When Flux's funders, represented by the overbearing bully Jack Rance, and his paymasters - the governmental powerplayer Chinnery - threaten to close down Flux, this apocalyptic AI tale takes an innovative twist on the man vs machine narrative.

This gripping tale leaves you wondering just how far from our current reality the story is.
