Raven’s not averse to a little heat; she's got a reputation from TopSide to UnderCity as a tour guide, a good-time girl, and a killer for hire. Side hustles are part of her gig, but when a routine grab goes wrong and she kills a high-profile vigilante named Shadow, the resulting attention of a hunting mega-corp is more heat than she likes.
Now, Raven’s on the clock to ditch the stolen data core before it gets her killed, but when she learns what’s stored on the enigmatic core, nothing about the job stays routine. As the conspiracy unfolds, she discovers her new enemy knows more about her past than she does.
This time it's not about earning a paycheck; it’s about freedom. And the reality is … no one is as free as they think.

"The world Bender builds is well thought out and reminiscent of William Gibson’s Bridge Trilogy with a splash of Mad Max. New White Sands is a place where futuristic technology intersects with people living on the edge. Its population can be both cut throat and fiercely loyal, adhering to rules spoken and unspoken." --Michael Prelee, Author of Milky Way Repo
