Binary Chop

A cyberpunk mystery, coming January 2020.

Do they really think someone trained to ask sneaky interview questions can’t bluff her way through a standard psych battery?

“How do you feel about what happened?”

Well, let’s see. The guy I was seeing on the sly got vaporized in front of me. Half my body got blown off and replaced with robot parts. Now all my colleagues–even my partner–stand out of reach when they talk to me. Oh yeah, and the chief shut down my investigation because saving face is apparently more important than keeping black market bionic technology, and the biohacker gangs who use it, off the streets of Baltimore.

“…It’s just a risk you run in the line of duty.”
