Publisher's Summary

They call it Company Town - a city-size oil rig off the coast of the Canadian Maritimes, now owned by one very wealthy, powerful, byzantine family: Lynch Ltd.
Hwa is of the few people in her community (which constitutes the whole rig) to forgo bioengineered enhancements. As such, she's the last truly organic person left on the rig - making her doubly an outsider as well as a neglected daughter and bodyguard extraordinaire. Still, her expertise in the arts of self-defense and her record as a fighter mean that her services are yet in high demand. When the youngest Lynch needs training and protection, the family turns to Hwa. But can even she protect against increasingly intense death threats seemingly coming from another timeline?
Meanwhile, a series of interconnected murders threatens the city's stability and heightens the unease of a rig turning over. All signs point to a nearly invisible serial killer, but all of the murders seem to lead right back to Hwa's front door. Company Town has never been the safest place to be - but now the danger is personal.
A brilliant, twisted mystery, as one woman must evaluate saving the people of a town that can't be saved or saving herself.

Different

I really liked it. It was fast paced and I felt like the characters had great development. My only complaint is that it wasn't twice as long! I wanted to delve more into the world of Company Town.

Great Ideas and Mix of Genre, Story Moves Slow

There are a lot of great ideas packed in the book and the world building is excellent, but it's hampered by a slow story. I loved Hwa as a character and the writing is excellent. The main issue is that the novel spends so much time on things that feel secondary to the overall plot. I felt like I kept waiting for the story to pick up and go, and by the time I felt like it did, the book was finished. If there was as much story as there was detail about Hwa's life and the day to day stuff (her job, her mother, etc.), I would have enjoyed it far more.

Good but the ending loses it a star.

Some great world building by the author, a kickass protagonist in Hwa and an ending that rather lets the whole side down. It feels rushed and the way Hwa is saved and altered feels like a betrayal to her characters growth as the story progressed.

Still, I enjoyed the book. Narration was good, apart from some of the accents attempted , listened at X1.5 playback speed.
