Overview

He's back from the dead... and he's not the only one.

The city-state of Denver is tightly controlled. High-tech methods of food manufacturing
and firm restrictions on reproduction keep the population stable. But even here, in this
regimented society, violence is never too far away...

It was supposed to be a simple job. At least, that's what Hans Ricker was expecting when
he agreed to deliver a mysterious package for five-hundred dollars.

He was not expecting to get torn limb from limb while making the handoff. Nor was he
expecting to emerge from a coma fourteen months later in the mile-high Denver General
Hospital, his original organs replaced with regrown tissue. And he definitely wasn't expecting to find himself entangled in a police investigation – one which takes a dangerous turn when an armed man tries to assassinate Greta "Grit" Ricker, Hans' estranged sister and head of Denver's security forces.

Shadow Life follows Hans Ricker as he sets out to find the person responsible for the
multiple attempts on his and his sister's lives. Pairing up with "Onyx," a powerful Denver crime lord, Hans hunts down leads across the Midwest. From the overpopulated religious commune of Salt Lake to the mountains of Colorado, Hans and Onyx fight for their lives against drones and lab-grown human constructs, gradually unravelling the mystery of who wants them dead, and why...

Shadow Life is a high-octane adventure set in a deeply layered near-future world of
complex political arrangements and fascinating new technologies, a must for fans of science fiction and cyberpunk.

Reviews:

"Jason Mather's "Shadow Life" blends the societal intrusiveness of George Orwell's "1984" with a sci-fi adventure of George Lucas in a timely manner." - Jeffrey Hatcher

"This is an incredibly readable book. From the first line, I was taken in and absorbed by the story, which has just enough science fiction in it to be intriguing, but not so much that you feel bogged down by the technical details." - sbinwa, amazon

"An excellent book. Rich characters. Great pacing. A page turner from start to finish." - Zennifer

This is a very good story. It starts with Hans trying for some quick money delivering a package when he walks in to a slaughter. His last dying sight is a woman dead next to him as he fades away. That is until he wakes up alive with some of his organs regrown. A capability in this future world where north america is now city states with most of the country gone and being overgrown by nature. The story continues with twists and turns that keep it a very interesting and fun read. How far has technology gone and what are the new limits? People are still people.
