Shock Pao is the best. In the virtual world - the Slip - there’s nothing he can’t steal for the right price. Outside the Slip, though, he’s a Fail: no degree, no job.
So when his ex offers him a job, breaking into a corporate databank, he accepts it’s either that, or find himself a nice bench to sleep under. Amiga works for psychotic crime lord - Twist Calhoun - so when Shocks war comes to her, it’s her job to bring him to Twist, dead or alive.
