The Courier; A San Angeles Novel
First in a trilogy, this far-future science fiction debut is set in San Franciscoâ€”action adventure with a cyberpunk tone.
Kris Ballard is a motorcycle courier. A nobody. Level 2 trash in a multi-level city that stretches from San Francisco to the Mexican border, where corporations make all the rules. A runaway since the age of 14, Kris struggled to set up her life, barely scraping by, working hard to make it without anyoneâ€™s help. Witnessing the murder of one of her clients changes everything. Now sheâ€™s stuck with a mysterious package that everyone seems to want.
Now the corporations want Kris gone, and are willing to go to almost any length to make it happen. Hunted, scared, and alone, she retreats to the only place she knows she can hide; the Level 1 streets. Running from people that seem to know her every move, she is rescued by Millerâ€”a member of an underground resistance groupâ€”only to be pulled deeper into a world she doesnâ€™t understand. They work together to stay ahead of the corporate killers, until Miller falls into their hands. Kris realizes being alone isnâ€™t the answer, and sheâ€™s willing to do anything to get him back.
