More About the Author
His love for science fiction compelled him to write his first novel What Are You Made Of? published in 2006. Inspired by Isaac Asimov, the science fiction novel focuses on intelligent artificial life and whether sentient androids should possess the same rights as humans. The androids in Starta's novel are created as hybrids - part machine, part human - further blurring the line between human and machine. Starta foresees a near future where humans will be forced to decide if intelligent machinery is indeed a life form. Possibly, in this near future, some humans will possess computer enhancements to overcome disabilities becoming hybrids themselves. The line between biological life form and mechanical life form continues to be examined in 2010's Gods of the Machines.
Demon Inhibitions along with its preceding Caitlin Diggs (series) novels, Extreme Liquidation and Blood Web are reminiscent of the The X-files television/movie series. Contemporary authors Laurell K. Hamilton, Rachel Caine, Jim Butcher and Kelly Armstrong also fuel his aspiration to create paranormal suspense.
Starta's crime novella ' Murder By Association' blends mystery with forensic investigation. It is a departure from previous books because it contains no science fiction or paranormal elements. Its follow up is 2012's Kindred Killers. Additionally, Starta foresees his 2008 novella ' Alzabreah's Garden ' - a fantasy romance - as another out-of-the-box effort.

A Caitlin Diggs Novel
Reviewed at author's request, of an e-book copy received from the author.
I found amazing the number of multiple plot themes the author is able to weave succinctly and skillfully into this mystery, and I also found the novel engrossing and compelling. I did not want to put it down before finishing (though a power outage ensured that I had to interrupt my reading). Author Gary Starta is prolific, but he is also sufficiently talented to carry off a novel that might have some writers quaking to try.
Caitlin Diggs has been an FBI agent for fifteen years, and she is a talented agent, highly proficient at her ugly job, catching serial killers. But the loss of the man she loved very much, a fellow agent, in a sting which should have been simple rather than deadly, has cost her terrible emotional turmoil. Additionally, her recent latent psychic abilities are latent no longer, and her visions are timely, vivid, and occasionally, on the deadly side. Matched against a shadowy opponent hubristic enough to take on even the Director of Homeland Security and win, Caitlin will be solving for her life, not just to close this case.
Mr. Starta is a master of combining utterly unique characters, exciting plots and a wonderful and natural wit into a most worthwhile read!
Extreme Liquidation (Caitlin Diggs) is no exception..a stick to your ribs ride into a most thrilling and exciting adventure..throw in razor sharp prose and an array of unforgetable characters,and you have a major winner!...no suprise as Mr. Starta is one of our finest writers today!

Lots of backstory and thoughtful character analysis—appropriate in an investigator I suppose—brings readers up to speed on earlier events and relationships, leaving them ready to learn more (especially about the cat). Meanwhile nicely changing viewpoints offer a chance to see what’s behind the scenes (again, especially with the cat—I love the chapter told from the cat's point of view).
When Caitlin’s visions start, the story simultaneously speeds up and slows down, allowing space for intriguing self-analysis, and lots of suspicion of evil in high places. Meanwhile evil from an ancient place stalks the protagonist, casting doubt on everything she knows, and suspicion on friends and foes.
A “red thread of destiny” offers protection, while a mysterious robe brings threat. Long passages of complex introspection offer a way through both deceits. And a slightly odd mathematics “weaves ethereal and material dimensions together.” Some strange word-choices combined with careful self-analysis to slow the story down. But fast action speed it up again, while hints of Stargate’s ancients blend with higher consciousness and “fourth dimensional” ascent, and the fate of the world might hang on the distinction between vision and dream.
Extreme Liquidation was a slower read than I expected, but it blends great characters with lots of intriguing ideas, and it tells a nicely complete story, making it a good introduction to the author’s Caitlin Diggs series.
Disclosure: I met the author online and was pleased to find a free ecopy of this book.
If you plan on reading this book, I would highly recommend reading the first to get the background on Caitlin Diggs beforehand. It will save you the trouble of trying to understand what her place is in the organization we know as the FBI, and how her abilities developed. Overall, I enjoyed the read, and would pass this on to others. Well done Mr. Gary Starta!
