Cyberpunk Detective Thriller

THESE MEAN STREETS, DARKLY the prequel to the cyberpunk

rainy skies and gray people walk below on the grimy, hard streets in
the “Neon Jungle.” Uber-governments and megacorporations fight
for control of the supercity, but so does crime.
An average woman, Carol—hardworking and decent in every way— loses
her daughter to the psycho Red Rabbit. Can Police Central find the
girl in time—alive? And is it really a random, senseless kidnapping
in the fifty-million-plus city?
There are a million victims and perpetrators in this High-Tech, Low-Life

(and unlikely hero), Cruz, in the debut novel, Liquid

Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful,” she said to him. He should have

him. “I knew I wasn’t gonna touch this case with a 10-foot pole.
It had danger written all over it, back and front.” But he did take
the Case of the NeuroDancer. Is this the private eye story where the
bad “guy” rides off into the sunset and the hero lies flat on his
back waiting for the meat wagon to fly down in their hoverambulance.
Which is crazier, indeed: the criminal—or the client? Welcome to the
high-tech, low-life world of Liquid Cool.

Introduction

To be a freelance private detective in the supercity of Metropolis. Not owned by any uber-government agency, megacorporation, or shadowy criminal cartel. That was the status I enjoyed, after more than a few deadly dangerous cases in the relatively short tenure of my Liquid Cool Detective Agency.  
But I didn’t want to be known for my gunplay or getting shot—the latter a skill I seemed to excel at. I wanted to be known for not using my gun—brain work. Feline cases were what I called them; I had had plenty of canine cases with everybody trying to kill me, bullets and lasers flying. I wanted to be the suave, sophisticated operator to go after the butt-in-chair, Japanese-whiskey-in-hand, brainiac criminals. Anyone could go after the crazy maniacs. I wanted to do battle against a higher class of criminals. Why should the big corporate detective firms corner that market? I wanted to show off my suave intellectual skills and prove this private street detective wasn’t the stereotypical doofus.
 My last case of the Blade Gunner had given me such a strong desire to avoid any outrageous violence and frenzy for a while. Unfortunately, in Metropolis, there would be no such luck for me, as the case of the NeuroDancer would prove.
I was a permanent cosmic magnet for violence. The violence didn’t have to be overt. Subtle violence—quiet, plotting criminals—could kill you as effectively as killer terminator robots and supercyborgs. I was accustomed to the hulking, scary-looking, skin-crawl-inducing criminals. But I had learned the hard way that they could wear silky nylons and neon lipstick, too.
Which is crazier, indeed: the criminal—or the client?
           

CHAPTER I: CLIENT ZERO

The only sound was that of the rain hitting the window behind me. As I sat behind my desk, I knew I was in trouble from the moment she walked into my office. The high-fashion, two-piece black slicker outfit she wore was tight enough to be a second skin, and wrapped around her eyes was a clear red visor. Those piercing eyes locked on me and never let go.
The Dame sat in the chair directly facing me and crossed her legs.
“Mr. Cruz, I’d like to hire you,” she said in her sensual voice.
“Miss, I gotta ask. Is it dangerous?”
“Dangerous, Mr. Cruz?”
“Yeah. What do you want to hire me to do? Does it involve…gangsters? Cyborgs? Killer robots? I don’t do dangerous. Dangerous means I get shot. I don’t like to get shot.”
“Oh, no, Mr. Cruz. I’m just an innocent damsel in distress, who needs a little help from the local private detective.”
I said to myself, Yeah, sure. I knew I wasn’t gonna touch this case with a 10-foot pole. It had danger written all over it, back and front.
“Miss, I’m sorry, but I actually won’t be able to take your case. I—” “Oh, I forgot one thing, Mr. Cruz,” the NeuroDancer added.
“What’s that?” I asked.
The only thing my eyes focused on was the slim briefcase she opened and laid on top of my desk. It was filled with stacks of beautiful currency.
“When do you want me to start?” I asked.
