Warnings: Brief but graphic violence, dark themes, torture and the aftermath
Summary: Cascade. A city divided. A city traumatised by its past. The wealthy elite live in luxury, safe in their high towers. In the city below, the streets are ruled by the “Wolfpack”: the ruthless street gang that rose to dominance in the wake of the Red Night Riot. Cybernetic surgeon Blair Sandburg could have been one of the elite but, pulled into the Wolfpack through some bad choices, he now sees no way out of the criminal underworld. Jim Ellison is a man with a mission and a secret he must keep at all costs. His quest leads him to risk a journey through the depths of the Wolfpack’s territory to Sandburg’s door, beginning an adventure that will change the lives of both men.
Author’s Notes: Thanks to AnnieB for the beta – she was very thorough and helpful, but I’ve made so many changes since then there are bound to be errors remaining. They are entirely my own. And to Luna_61 for the marvellous artwork – I’m still bowled away by what she did with the tattoo! Finally, to Patt, my partner in crime, without whom this story would never have been finished. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.
