LoneFire - Stephen Deas N/A

"A flash of light. I’m lying on a field of grass. An explosion. I open my eyes. Victor Longthorne’s face stares back at me. No sign of the rest of him."

From Stephen Deas, bestselling author of The Adamantine Palace and The Royalist, comes LoneFire, a new foray into the many worlds of cyberpunk sci-fi.

Constantine is a veteran freelance corporate spy. Time was he was the best of the best with a rep to open any doors, but that all stopped a year ago when Victor Longthorne, the richest man in the galaxy, blew up in his face – literally.

Now he takes what work he can get – dirty, murky, whatever pays the bills; and that's why he's about to wake up in a system that doesn't welcome visitors with no idea how he got there.

Not only that, but he's got an Artificial Intelligence system peering over his shoulder, manipulating his every move and why, like it or not, he's about to find himself sucked into a galaxy-spanning conspiracy, desperate to find out why Victor Longthorne's empire is turning on itself before the galaxy's most lethal cult of religious fanatics catch up with him.

The dead messiah in a box, though? Mostly that one's on him.

Part space-opera, part cyberpunk, LoneFire is a frantic science fiction ride through a broken future with a bad attitude.
