He’s back from the dead… and he’s not the only one.
It was supposed to be a simple job. At least, that’s what Hans Ricker was expecting when he agreed to deliver a mysterious package for five-hundred dollars.
He was not expecting to get torn limb from limb while making the handoff. Nor was he expecting to emerge from a coma fourteen months later in the mile-high Denver General Hospital, his original organs replaced with regrown tissue. And he definitely wasn’t expecting to find himself entangled in a police investigation – one which takes a dangerous turn when an armed man tries to assassinate Greta “Grit” Ricker, Hans’ estranged sister and head of Denver’s security forces.
Shadow Life is a high-octane adventure set in a deeply layered near-future world of complex political arrangements and fascinating new technologies, a must for fans of science fiction and cyberpunk.
