The Corroding, by TY Tracey - press release


As our days pass, all that we are corrodes within its malevolent grasp. It’s escalating. It’s violent.


There’s darkness sweeping over all of us. Something sinister—undoubtedly there, but not quite prominent enough to put our collective finger on. The haunted and unusual have become commonplace, arriving within a newfound shadow that blankets the countryside in every direction. As our days pass, all that we are corrodes within its malevolent grasp. It’s escalating. It’s violent.


Lori Cruz is a highly gifted crime scene investigator in the FBI. She’s widely regarded as the most talented of her generation within the bureau. She’s called in to investigate a high profile and particularly brutal murder. Like so much else in those ominous days, the scene, despite its unique and horrifying characteristics, proves mystifying to Lori and her colleagues—devoid of any and all evidence. She is stumped, grasping to understand how a killer could be so depraved, yet all the while, so careful. Until the killer strikes again. And again.


As the world around her descends further into chaos, Lori is sent on a quest that takes her across the country in search of someone responsible for the crimes. Her journey brings her and an eclectic group of characters together. A genius in applied mathematics, Keenan Ray, who’s advanced methods toward investigating the paranormal uncover key evidence to Lori’s case. A couple of college kids, Dimitri Isabella and Andy Webber, who’s machine learning AI has unexpectedly begun providing insights into the overall spirit of our societal deconstruction. Only together do they begin to unravel that which is responsible. Not just for the murders, but for the corroding of our entire species. Lori had set out in search of someone. Instead, all the while, she was on the trail of something unexplainable—an evil only rivaled by all that is dark within our collective selves.
