Beat In Her Blood

Coming soon!

An image of the book's cover: black, with a magenta neon outline of Baltimore's waterfront buildings styled to look like a motherboard.

Veteran Petra Arceneaux found a new use for her maritime skills, piloting illegal charters that offer black-market bionic devices for patients sickened by climate change. When dangerous combat technology resurfaces in the body of the ship’s surgeon, she races against her own failing health to find the killer before bloody history repeats.

Needing help from a healthcare insider, she recruits jaded paramedic Jonathan Rowell, who’s torn between affection for the victim and resentment of biohackers. Despite their distrust, the offbeat pair uncovers links between underground “upgrade” parlors, a controversial biotech company, and their own troubled pasts.

But as their investigation endangers Jonathan’s livelihood and Petra’s life, suspicion corrodes their alliance…and with it, their chance to save near-future Baltimore from becoming a battlefield.
