Firefly meets Ex_Machina in this no-holds-barred space opera adventure.
Would you rather die a hero, or live as a wanted criminal?
Ex-con Captain Caleb Shepperd believes being good is overrated. All he wants is to smuggle illegal cargo through the nine systems and live a prosperous (likely short) life on the wrong side of the law.
But there’s a problem with that plan. The priceless synthetic stowaway on his ship is a distraction he doesn’t need.
Torn between selling her and tossing her out the airlock, Shepperd fails to realize the synth is a killer, and he’s the one locked in her sights.
In a world where only one thousand synthetics were built, synthetic number One Thousand and One should not exist. She is no ordinary synth. Memories locked inside her code could bring Shepperd—and the entire nine systems—to its knees.
Captain Shepperd and the oppressive corporations are about to learn that you can’t hide from the sins of your past, especially when that past has orders to kill.
About the Author:
Born in Tonbridge, Kent in 1979, — “Wait a second. Let’s cut to the chase. I write kick-ass urban fantasy novels with conflicted characters, breathless action, and no-holds-barred dialogue. My books may not leave you feeling all fluffy and warm inside, but they will excite you. There will be plot twists, there will be angst, probably a few bodies, and very likely your favorite character will turn out to be the bad guy. Don’t say I didn’t warn you…”
Pippa’s family moved to the South West of England where she grew up among the dramatic moorland and sweeping coastlands of Devon & Cornwall. With a family history brimming with intrigue, complete with Gypsy angst on one side and Jewish survivors on another, she has the ability to draw from a patchwork of ancestry and use it as the inspiration for her writing. Happily married and the Mother of two little girls, she resides on the Devon & Cornwall border.
