Metropolis wasn’t a bad place, but it wasn’t a good one either.
THESE MEAN STREETS, DARKLY is the prequel to the cyberpunk, detective series, LIQUID COOL.
It’s a world of colossal skyscrapers. Hover-cars fly above in the dark, rainy skies and gray people walk below on the grimy, hard streets in this “neon jungle.” Uber-governments and mega-corporations fight for control of the super-city, but so does crime.
An average woman, Carol—hardworking and decent in every way— loses her daughter to the psycho Red Rabbit. Can Police Central find the girl in time—alive? And is it really a random, senseless kidnapping in the fifty-million-plus city?
There are a million victims and perpetrators in this high-tech, low-life world. This is one of those stories…before we meet our private eye (and unlikely hero), Cruz, in the series debut novel, Liquid Cool.
