Rath is a teenager with a secret, a photographic memory that is his and his brother Vonn's ticket our of the slums of their homeworld of Tarkis. Things go sideways when Vonn is caught double crossing the local drug lord. With Vonn dead, Rath leaves his drugged out parents and takes to the streets. Three years later he is still surviving on his own when he is picked up by a recruiter for the Guild. Rath is offered the deal of a lifetime: be trained as an elite hitman, and when he makes it to fifty kills, he gets fifty percent of the fees collected for his kills.
So Rath goes to work for the Janus Group, but something is wrong. He isn't a stone cold killer and no one thinks he will last long before getting captured or killed himself.
Can Rath survive his contract and collect a reward that would set him up for life? Or will he fail like so many others before him.
I suggest you pick up this great read and find out for yourself.
Pretty much pre-ordered the rest. Best mathematical formula for this book: Bladerunner + Borne Identity divided by Dollhouse x The Forever War with a dash of The Running Man via S. King, mix it into one octane sized blender and you have a reader that already pre-ordered the rest of them.
Basically if you love sci fi, give this book a chance or sample download, who knows? Maybe you will like it as much as I did.
Heck if you loved older movies like "Escape from New York" or "Logan's Run" this thing might be right up your alley. Very gritty but oh so good!
The core idea of the book is a great twist on the normal "society of assassins" and organized underworld tropes. Instead of the standard honor among killers/thieves approach, this book takes a bleaker but realistic view. Very interesting cast of characters and our main protagonist is not super-man or a Mary Sue. Worth checking out for both fans of SF and Thrillers/Crime stories.
