Book 1 // Defrag

“Runners are moths. Doesn’t matter how perfect a machine you build. There’s a weakness there, and Runners will find a way to exploit it.”

The neon-washed streets of Neosaka are a hard place to make a living. Glitch, a hacker with more of a talent for computers than people, barely scrapes by as a Runner, stealing from the massive corporations that run her city. One night, on the 189th floor of a high-security surveillance company, everything falls apart.

What should have been a simple data grab turns deadly when a rival crew shows up. They’re looking for the same prize and don’t care who they have to kill to get it. Computer savvy won’t be enough this time. With a relentless security force on the way, Glitch must find a way to ally with her enemies if any of them are to survive. That would be hard enough if some of her prospective allies didn’t also have their own hidden agendas…

Book 2 // Overclocked

“You wanted to be a Runners, this is how Runners survive. You learn to walk away.”

Glitch escaped Eyes in the Sky with blood on her shoes and a broken watch. It should have ended there, but mere hours later the faceless corporation that hired her is suddenly, inexplicably out for her blood.

Driven deep into the underbelly of Neosaka, Glitch is caught up in a fight between the city’s gangs and a Runner relentlessly searching for answers. Haunted by the deaths of her crew and dogged by her past, Glitch will have to push her already-exhausted body and mind past their limits to survive and pay off her debts to the dead.

Book 3 // User Error

“You broke the rules tonight, Glitch. I want to know why.”

Glitch is short on options. Funds are low and an old enemy is hunting her. When she’s offered a job that could buy her some time, Glitch jumps at the opportunity. Unfortunately, jobs aren’t ever easy for Runners in a city like Neosaka, and Glitch’s personal code of rebellion may make an already hard job impossible.

When Glitch chooses principles over pay, the only way to salvage the mission is for her to go undercover at Genocom University, an elite school for the children of the rich who run the city. Choices from jobs past return to haunt her, and she becomes entangled in the secrets of powerful people who will not hesitate to kill her. Worse yet, Glitch begins to suspect that this isn’t an honest run. Someone is playing her and her team.
