- A Novel
- By: Richard K. Morgan
- Narrated by: Colin Mace
- Length: 18 hrs and 6 mins
From the author of the award-winning Altered Carbon, which is now an exciting new series from Netflix. On a Mars where ruthless corporate interests violently collide with a homegrown independence movement as Earth-based overlords battle for profits and power, Hakan Veil is an ex-professional enforcer equipped with military-grade body tech that's made him a human killing machine. But he's had enough, and all he wants is a ticket back home - which is just what he's offered by the Earth Oversight organization, in exchange for being the bodyguard for an EO investigator.
Turns out there is life on Mars

Morgan gets better and better!
I absolutely loved this. Cyberpunk noir and a slippery plot with a splatter (hah!) of grimdark.
Gory, conscious, postulating a plausible colonization outcome with no illusions about human nature and the agglomeration of capital, Thin Air will pull you in. I hope to hear more about the Overrider soon.
