Mendacium Book 1: Project Morpheus

With John’s marriage torn apart by self-indulgence, his teenage son, Matthew, is left alone to find refuge in online gaming. His mind becomes so entangled in the duality between what is real and what is fiction that his soul suffers.

 
When Matthew becomes debilitated by a suspicious car accident, his estranged father does anything necessary to pull him out of a coma, even to the point of participating in an experimental procedure where he will have to go beyond the comforts of his worldview to sever the fantasies that imprison his son. Though determined to liberate Matthew, John discovers there are dark forces pushing against his success.
