    Avery Cates is a very bad man. Some might call him a criminal. He might even be a killer - for the right price. But right now, Avery Cates is scared. He's up against the Monks - cyborgs with human brains, enhanced robotic bodies, and a small arsenal of advanced weaponry. Their mission is to convert anyone and everyone to the Electric Church. But there is just one snag: Conversion means death.

    If you like antiheroes, it's a great read

    "They spread, Mr. Cates.... Once a single microscopic unit enters the body, it begins replicating. Once there are enough units in the body, they begin... consuming." Avery Cates is a very rich man. He's probably the richest criminal in New York City. But right now, Avery Cates is pissed. Because everyone around him has just started to die---in a particularly gruesome way. With every moment bringing the human race closer to extinction, Cates finds himself in the role of both executioner and savior of the entire world.

    Favorite Series

    I own all the paper back books, and have read through them several times.
    I now listen through the audio books whenever I am in between books.

    I knew the mechanics of death - and I was caught in its gears. Avery Cates is a wanted man. After surviving the worst bioengineered disaster in history, Cates finds himself incarcerated - in Chengara Penitentiary. As Chengara has a survival rate of exactly zero, the system's most famous gunner must do some serious plotting. And a betrayal or so later, he achieves his goal. At a price.....

    Absolutely fantastic

    This is the best of the series, so far. The narrative style changes for this one, describing two different timelines that come together in a surprisi..Show More »
