Excellent Cyberpunk Classic Mind blowing book and a read that will keep you turning pages long into the night, at least it did for me. – Amazon Review
MegaCity ML has almost starved itself of energy. Elite agent Matthias Blue has run out of purpose. Keeping the streets and skyLanes safe was all that mattered until the death of his best friend knocked him into bottomless booze and low-stim capsules.
But when Blue is hit by lightning, and his mentor is murdered in an attack no one thought possible, his rage reignites.
Hunting those responsible, Blue and his sophisticated android partner, Cromwell, discover that the very institutions designed to protect and serve the MegaCity are caught in the middle of a desperate plan for a new power source – one that might actually fix everything.
Complicating things are Blue’s sudden failing health and visions of someone else’s childhood in captivity. Increasingly reliant on Cromwell, he begins to think he was one of the very first test subjects, while something deeper whispers Blue may be the key to the enemy’s designs.
Torn between cold vengeance and the future of millions of people, Blue must hold himself together and put on the duster coat one last time. If he can’t, then he’ll die, knowing every citizen with a pulse is there for the taking.
