Neither will stop until they have justice.
Jason Bourne meets Mr. Robot on a space station.
Biotech Wars Series:
This series has a completed, 4-book spinoff series that starts with STAR FORGED.
"One of the things that Justin excels at is writing his characters so well that they shine clearly through the (deliberate) murky situation on this space station. I find I’m not rooting for one side or the other, and I don’t feel any need to because I’m rooting for the characters. I’m about three-quarters of the way through the first book and I still have no idea how it will end. Recommended." -- Author Tim C. Taylor
Marick and Alicia have information on Space Station Horus that the leader of New Origins will go to any lengths to stop from being exposed.
To get this information into the right hand, they seek out her FBI sister back on Earth. Along the way, they’re forced to confront the elite super soldiers known as the Taipans—as well as an army of bounty hunters.
One thing is certain: with war raging on the streets, they’re going to need all the allies they can find in their desperate fight for survival and humanity's freedom.
