Clive Fleury is an award-winning writer of books and screenplays, and a TV and film director and producer. He has worked for major broadcasters and studios on a wide variety of successful projects in the US, UK, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East.

When Clive was young, a man behind a big desk who called himself a ‘Career Specialist’ fell about laughing when Clive told him he wanted to tell stories. The ‘Expert’ had other plans. “You should be an engineer, that’s what you should be,” he said. Clive ignored his advice and embarked upon a very different life.

Kill Code: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel is Clive’s latest book-the first in an exciting new dystopian science fiction series set in a world facing climate catastrophe where nothing is what it seems.

Fans of fantasy adventure books like 'The Hunger Games', 'The 5th Wave', and 'Divergent' will be captivated by 'Kill Code'.

Besides ‘Kill Code’, Clive also wrote 'Scary Lizzy' - a novel about an eight year old girl, Sarah Wilde, who befriends an African child ghost - and the teen action adventure book, 'The Boy Next Door ' - or what happens when a teenage girl has a crush on her next door neighbor, who isn't all he seems. And he co-wrote 'Art Pengriffin and The Curse of The Four' - a young adult fantasy adventure about a teenage boy who discovers his father was Merlin the Magician. It was a Kindle Book Review Awards Semi-Finalist.

When he’s not writing, lazing on the beach, drinking coffee, reading, or going to the movies, Clive loves to travel – anywhere and anytime he has any spare cash.

Praise for KILL CODE

5.0 out of 5 stars: Recommended read if you like the the hunger games type books. Great! Captivating, action packed and thrilling! This futuristic novel is quite short but so cleverly written. I find most shorter stories run the risk of missing the plot and cramming too much into the story. The pace of this book is perfect. Clive devotes the first 40% of the book to setting the scene of Hogans mundane life after the tragic end to his life as a cop. After the first 40% the book is suspense and action filled to the very end. The plot twists are great and not what you would be able to guess. I must admit after the twist, I read the rest of the book wondering if there was going to be another twist. I do not want to give too much away but when you read it you will know what I mean. Amazon Review

5.0 out of 5 stars. Loved It: I'm a huge fan of Dystopian and Sci-Fi, so when I saw Kill Code: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel , I was super excited to pick up a new novel by an author who was also new to me to see what it was all about. I was most certainly not let down. Sure, you may be thinking that you have seen all there is and read all there is with regards to Dystopian adventures, but Kill Code is a far cry from anything you have read in the past. This is a fast-paced and very fun read and you will most definitely be glad you gave this one a shot. Amazon Verified Purchase

It's the year 2031. Our future. Their present. A world decimated by climate catastrophe, where the sun's heat is deadly and the ocean rises higher every day. A world ruled by the rich, powerful, and corrupt. A world where a good man can’t survive for long.

Hogan Duran was a good man once. He was a cop, forced to resign in disgrace when he couldn't save his partner from a bullet. Now Hogan lives on the fraying edges of society, serving cruel masters and scavenging trash dumps just to survive.

But after four years of living in poverty, Hogan finally gets a chance to get back on his feet. He's invited to join the National Security Council, the powerful paramilitary organization responsible for protecting the rich and powerful from the more unsavory elements of society. All he needs to do is pass their deadly entrance exam, and he'll be rewarded with wealth and opportunity beyond his wildest dreams.

But this ex-cop's path to redemption won't be easy. The NSC are hiding something, and as Hogan descends deeper and deeper into their world, he starts to uncover the terrible truth of how the powerful in this new world maintain their power...and just how far they will go to protect their secrets.

In a world gone wrong, can one man actually make a difference, or will he die trying?

Kill Code is the first novel in an exciting new dystopian science fiction series from the mind of the award-winning author, screenwriter, and director Clive Fleury.

Fans of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, and Divergent by Veronica Roth will be captivated by Kill Code.
