Publisher's Summary

In a darkly warped near future, lucrative disease cures are brokered on Wall Street's Genetic Stock Exchange. And the hottest consumer products are artificially synthesized humans that serve as everything from domestic slaves to combatants in savage gladiatorial games. For Jack Saxton, the young heir to genetic design powerhouse Genico Inc., these Synthates are just a fact of life...until the murder of a high-profile genetic scientist leads a pair of seasoned NYPD detectives to Genico's door.
As a small band of Synthate rebels steps up its attack on the status quo, Jack encounters a pleasure-parlor girl who opens his eyes to their cause. When he dares to sympathize with the rebels, Jack is hunted down and arrested for the murder. Sentenced to die in the brutal games on Bloomberg Island, Jack will be forced to fight - for his life, for the future of all Synthates, and for a chance to uncover the mind-bending secret buried in his past.

Hard start-morphs into an ok time kill read

It was a difficult story for me to slip into. Mainly because it felt slow, dark, & depressing. The narrator is excellent at giving you that desolate vibe. I ended up putting it down & reading another book. You know how it is. Once I started it again it held my attention. It had some interesting twists (the whole Captain America bit had me in stitches-if you like dark humor then keep going just for that). It wasn’t omg omg must read but fell more into the good book to read whilst looking for the book you really want to read. My husband (a biography and non fiction reader) actually found kept sucking for updates as he found the plot very deep and thought provoking. Hmm-Oh! Narration was good—-> sorry almost forgot that most important detail!
