New Verdun—the near future.
A late-stage capitalist hellhole dystopia.
Broken and convalescing in a temple after a job gone wrong, seasoned criminal, Barker, is surprised when old acquaintance, Meera Galatas-Sarwar, approaches him with an offer he shouldn’t refuse—one final heist in exchange for more money than he can spend in retirement. He just doesn’t realise he has no choice.
Intricate plans are made. An elite team is pulled together, including Richter, an insider. Confident of success, they are poised to pull the heist of their careers.
But it doesn’t go quite as planned.
Some true colours shine brightly in the dark fallout, and Meera and Richter are not who they at first appeared to be.
Reader’s review: A dystopian cyberpunk crime noir novella with surprising plot twists that keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last word. I want to see a sequel!
