Monica L. Patton Releases Psychological Spy Thriller, NEO GEISHA, With EDM Soundtrack

Philomene Doucette, is a made-to-order assassin struggling between her programming and her desire for free will. Brainwashed and systematically fractured from the age of six, the pretty killer disassociates between her Six-Year-Old Self, the heart, Philomene, the head, and the Monarch Queen, the abyss who finds no issue with killing. Now aged twenty-one, it is the eve of Philomene's most important assignment yet: executing Haruto Mori, a deadly Yakuza clan leader, but her focus is wavering with the awakening of something she hasn't felt in a long time - empathy.

Smuggled into Japan to carry out the kill, she finds herself entangled in a web of half-truths and shadow agendas. Furthermore, her determination to complete the mission becomes compromised by her affection for Haruto and her increasing desire for his ever-present shadow, The Green-Eyed one. When the carnage exacts a personal toll, Philomene takes it all on--like the beautiful monster she was programmed to be.

From the haunting bayou to the land of the rising sun, NEO GEISHA is a graphic exploration of Identity that begs the question - Who am I? Nurture. Nature. Victim? Monster!

"It's engaging adventure fiction. I like how the characters are developed and the story line. There are some unexpected twists here and there, and the ending is good too. If you are a fan of Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne Series, could try this one." - Anna Croft
