Summary
Earth, 2144. Judith "Jack" Chen, a scientist-turned-drug pirate, travels the world in a submarine to bring cheap medicine to the poor, but when her latest drug hack results in a trail of lethal overdoses, she is pursued by a jaded military agent and his robotic partner
Summary
Big Pharma is watching you. In a near-future society dominated by multinational corporations, drug pirate Jack Chen reverse-engineers expensive medications and distributes free copies to those who can't afford the real thing. As a result, her activities have attracted the attention of the International Property Coalition, which sends military robot Paladin and Paladin's human partner, Eliasz, to apprehend Jack. With its noir-tinged dystopian setting, suspenseful plot, and themes of bioethics and artificial intelligence, this debut may remind readers of William Gibson's Neuromancer. -- Description by Gillian Speace
