The Usurper King
Zeb Haradon, author
The Usurper King takes place in an alternate universe where the serial killer Ted Bundy was never apprehended and is now running for president in 2016. Jim, a sufferer of a hybrid computer-biological virus that causes premature aging, tries to pay for his treatments by winning money on the game show 'Guts!', which has contestants competitively predict the future by reading animal entrails. As Jim begins to find omens in the entrails of Bundy's victory, and details of Bundy's murderous past are uncovered, Jim and another contestant take it upon themselves to stop his ascent to power before it's too late.
