  The Golden Cord of Arram (First Published 2020)  
The Golden Cord of Arram is available now!
“Despite the novel’s familiar genre trappings, it’s rather ambitious in its themes, and its mix of conspiracy and crime fiction makes for a generally entertaining and occasionally thought-provoking escape. A stylish story in which investigators aren’t afraid to get in too deep. [see more]” — Kirkus Reviews

"Golden Cord of Arram is a riveting story with a tantalizing end, making the reader want the next installment in the series. The story is one of hope against seemingly impossible odds and terrifying truths, how the human spirit canít be suppressed. For readers who enjoy speculative fiction with a heavy science basis and metaphysical elements, Walt Runkisís novel will satisfy [see more]". ó The Book Review Directory

"The Golden Cord of Arram is the first book in a trilogy by Walt Runkis. The unique concept and multiple twists and turns made it difficult for me to put the book down, as I never knew what would happen next. The novel was told in the third-person narrative, and it switched back and forth between several different characters, including some of the antagonists. The book ended with a cliffhanger that left me itching to get my hands on the second book in the series [see more]". ó OnlineBookClub

The Golden Cord of Arram is a psychological thriller. There are high-action sequences and battles, plenty of suspense, and shadowy aliens in the periphery, but the actors on this stage are almost entirely human. Some are caught in the miasma of fascism, and hate-based conspiracy theories, willing to do or say anything to satisfy the drives thrust upon them by their dark will, while other actors fight to preserve individual rights based on love, truth, harmlessness, and the rule of law. It is the eternal battle: autocracy versus democracy: Speculative fiction that skillfully blurs the line between what is real and what is not.
