Dead Dwarves Don't Dance by Derek J. Canyon

Noose, a genetically engineered dwarf mercenary, barely survives a terrorist attack on a neohuman dance club. Injured and alone, he embarks on a brutal quest for vengeance into the squalid underbelly of the Regional Atlanta Metroplex, through the desert wasteland of the not-so-pristine wilderness, and to the peerless towers of elite society.

The year is 2134. The nations of previous centuries are gone, consumed by the United Globe government. Citizens are confined to vast metroplexes while the rest of Earth is restored to wilderness. Neohumans are grown in vats, each type genetically engineered to serve humanity – flawless pleasers for gratification and ecstasy, hulking goons for war and violence, accidental psykers wreaking havoc, and more of any shape and size imaginable.

An action-packed, hard-boiled science fiction novel of redemption and revenge.

If you are looking for a fun action sci-fi noir sorta thing then this might be the ride you are looking for. I found it while looking for something new in the cyberpunk vein, and this cool book popped up in the search. There is a song mentioned in the book that shares the title with the book, and I thought it would be cool to make that song. I contacted the author and worked with some friends to make a song that comes from the same future as the book. I hope my review and my song help a few more readers more easily find this cool independent book. P.S. It looks like Barnes & Noble doesn't want me to post a link to the song but if you google my name and the book title you should be able to find it easily enough

Finally, A well written Shadowrun Book. Noose is a throwback to the 80's hero - shoot first, forget the questions. With enough plot twists to keep every one off balance until the last page.
