Connor Rix was there at the beginning, when the second-generation Brazilian steroids first arrived on the scene, along with the blood boost packs. It was his job to keep the newly-superhuman rowdies under control and shut down the most poisonous of the new modification labs. Not an easy job, but unbreakable bones and state-of-the-art optical implants sure help.

Overview

Connor Rix was there at the beginning, when the second-generation Brazilian steroids first arrived on the scene, along with the blood boost packs. It was his job to keep the newly-superhuman rowdies under control and shut down the most poisonous of the new modification labs. Not an easy job, but unbreakable bones and state-of-the-art optical implants sure help.

But now the list of bio-engineered miracles available to the public has grown as broad as the desires of mankind. And one man is leaving a trail of bodies across the Texas Republic as he brutally takes control of the market in human modifications and suppresses all competitors.

What will it take to stop him? And what price must Rix pay to bring the man to justice? Fortunately, Rix isn't working this job alone. He has a nearly 7-foot giant on his team with a one-of-a-kind exoskeleton boosting his strength off the charts. And then there's the night owl who never sleeps (or so she says) but that's not her only modification. The woman Rix wants to make his wife is along for the ride too, if she can keep her fears in check.

These four must square off against an army of Modified enforcers to bring down the man who seeks to rule the bio-enhancement trade. All they have to figure out now is if their famous benefactor is a friend or foe....

What They're Saying

The global power balance has changed since the Breakup War, and the human race is changing with it. In his breakout sci-fi novel Rules of Force, Steve Statham plunges you headlong into the seamy underbelly of the growing human modification trade-a world spiked with intrigue, brutal corporate espionage and superhuman biotechnology. Combining a deliciously textured plot and a cast of salty characters with his tight, often humorous and always rapid-fire writing style, Statham drops the pedal on this bone-pounding sci-fi thriller and never lets off the gas. - Rob Reaser, author of the sci-fi novel Age of Giants - awakening.

Brawn and Brains Excellent first novel. Fast paced story that kept me up late. (Just one more chapter). Thrilling action scenes that are believable. (surprising how many established authors don't get this right.) The author created a very realistic near future society that I can can actually see coming to pass. I am definently going to pick up the next in the series. I don't know if the author Steve Statham is related to the actor Jason Statham but I would love to see Jason star in the movie version of this novel. It has the action he's famous for but doesn't insult the readers (viewers) intelligence. Roger F.
