ALTERLIFE is in the vein of BREAKING BAD and READY PLAYER ONE.
A man’s quest for freedom. A world of limitless possibilities.
Down on his luck and with his back against a wall, John Crussel would do anything to provide for his family. Even rob a bank out of desperation. But when he hears of how he can make money in a virtual reality video game called Alterlife, he walks away from the robbery and decides to give it a shot.
Couldn’t be harder than robbing a bank, could it?
John’s world is about to change as he finds that Alterlife is easier than it seems. But being a hotshot new guy that seems to have all the luck draws the attention of some dangerous people in Alterlife – ones that want what he has and are willing to do anything for it.
As the line between the real world and the virtual world begins to blur, John begins to question his sanity. He soon finds himself in a fight for his life and is forced to make a difficult choice, one that will change his future and shake the very foundation of everything he knows.

When Rob Santos went to work on Tuesday, January 18, 2011, it was a typical winter day in downtown Boston Massachusetts; raw, spitting snow, and the usual penetrating wind blowing in off the harbor. Nothing out of the ordinary.
His life was on a fast track to success: VP position with a Fortune 500 Firm, big salary and bonuses, expensive house in upscale neighborhood, gorgeous wife, and daughters attending a prestigious private school.
What Rob didn’t know was everything was about to change forever.
By the end of the day, his family, his marriage, his job would all be coming apart.
In the dark days that followed, he found himself staring into the black hole of divorce, abandonment, personal bankruptcy, and debilitating depression.
But then a solution was offered from an unlikely source. A childhood friend, who had become a militant female attorney specializing in cases advocating women’s rights, quietly recommended a consultant who helped clients disappear.
It was a path out of the tar pit Rob Santos was mired in, and he took it. It involved falsifying his death and then disappearing.
He would start a new life far, far away. And it worked. In fact, for Rob Santos, life was never better.
And then one day his past showed up.
