Chase the Tiger
The day of the bio-engineered superhuman is here, and the only limit is human imagination.
When two Animal Kids—young women modified to resemble their favorite jungle cats—hire Connor Rix to recover stolen black-market biotech, it looks like a straightforward case. No problem for a guy like Rix, with his unbreakable bones, advanced optical implant, and rewired nervous system.
But the mystery runs a lot deeper than Rix ever could have guessed. Untangling it will require getting past lethal enforcers with bizarre modifications, and facing down the larger forces operating in the background.
Imagine a superhuman Phillip Marlowe in a Texas Blade Runner setting, and you’ve got Chase the Tiger, the fourth novel in the Connor Rix series of SF thrillers.

But man does not live by gasoline alone. I've always been an ardent reader of science fiction, and cross over to that genre as frequently as I can. My series of Connor Rix science fiction thrillers are my best-sellers, but I've published contemporary fantasy and space opera novels as well.
