Release of new novel: A Town Called Babylon.

Excited to announce the release of my new novel, A Town Called Babylon. It is an engaging and provocative dystopian thriller.

Unlike other novels in that genre, however, it does not travel well-worn ground focused on tyrannical governments. Rather, it provides a glimpse into the alarming world of societal tyranny. Drawing on biblical prophecy and burgeoning social trends, it paints an unsettling portrait of the immediate future when society – working in concert with powerful institutions such as corporations, academia, and the media – threatens and attacks truth, individuality, and religious freedom. The picture that emerges is at once frightening and hopeful, cautionary and insightful.

Set in fictitious Babylon, the story revolves around Dr. Philly Love, a neurosurgeon who steadfastly refuses to embrace as truth the pronouncements of the Intellectual Council, and Browning Dillon, the worship pastor of Babylon Community Church who has serious reservations about society’s worldview. When the pair meet at a neighborhood barbecue, sparks fly. As they draw closer to each other they find themselves targeted by sinister forces masquerading as angels of light – dark powers determined to destroy them and unify the world under one banner.

It is available on Amazon (paperback and Kindle) and online at Barnes & Noble. I’ve attached a link below for more info. If you would like a signed copy (at 25% off), please contact me via email.

Just Released My Latest Thriller, An Absence of Justice.

I just released my latest novel, An Absence of Justice, in September 2015.

With first-rate writing, credible dialogue, and a riveting plot, it makes an exceptional read for any fan of suspense. Throw in a couple unforgettable characters, several bombshells, and plenty of heart-pounding action and you have one of the year’s best thrillers.

Critics say:

“A complex, international thriller … that will hold the reader’s attention from the first page to the last … [It is] too good to put down and will leave you on the edge of your seat … With any luck, Cyr has already started working on a sequel.” (San Francisco Book Review).

“Highly Recommended … A highly satisfying novel you soon won’t forget … When you turn the last page you’ll be begging Cyr to focus an entire series around the truly memorable protagonist.” (BestThrillers.com).

“Thriller-aficionados will unite in praise for An Absence of Justice … A compelling, satisfying thrill ride [that] has it all; suspense, intrigue, surprises, and depth of plot.” (Portland Book Review).

Synopsis: As one of the world’s leading authorities on technology, Malcolm Fitzpatrick uses his expertise to identify a unique brand of criminal: the privileged killer. These über-successful men sacrifice innocent lives in their pursuit of wealth, power, and greatness. Alarmed by their growing presence in Europe and the courts’ unwillingness to hold them accountable, Malcolm decides to intervene personally.

In Paris, meanwhile, investigative journalist Camille Chevalier has written an incendiary story detailing despicable acts committed by three prominent Parisians. Before it goes to press, however, her editor leaks the story to one of the perpetrators, placing her life in imminent danger. To survive, Camille goes underground where she encounters an unlikely benefactor, Malcolm.

Together they devise a plan to ensure the men identified in her story never harm anyone again. The ensuing cat-and-mouse chase crisscrosses Europe through Monte Carlo, Cannes, Geneva, and, finally, Paris, where an explosive, nail-biting finale occurs.

It is available in paperback at Amazon and Barnes & Noble online. It is also available in a variety of e-reader formats (see links below). I encourage you to pick up a copy today. And don’t forget to recommend it to a friend and post a review on your favorite book review website.
