Dirk Vandereyken gives us a thrilling new look at the Fates Worse Than Death universe in the first Fates Worse Than Death novel.

He was raised to be a killer, given extensive training in virtual reality and the best implants. He has no memories besides his training. He doesn’t even have a name. Those he works for send him out into 2080’s most dangerous ghetto to kill people they say are a drain on society. He has always killed without question, with skill and efficiency. Yet now he is starting to ask questions, questions that may destroy him.
