Spoil the Kill (Excerpt)

In the future of Oisín McGann’s Spoil the Kill, WatchWorld owns the city of London, tracking its inhabitants’ every move with cameras, drones, and heat sensors.

Teenage self-proclaimed criminal nerd Scope and her friends work for Move-Easy, the city’s biggest thug. When Easy wants an old enemy found, his rat-runners search through social media and by slipping in and out of the city’s Voids, or blind spots where they can’t be detected by Safe-Guards—the part-human, part-robot police.

Scope and her fellow rat-runners know not to make an enemy out of Move-Easy. But what if the target is innocent? Can Scope spoil the kill, or will doing so make her Easy’s next mark? Spoil the Kill is a prequel novella to Rat Runners, out January 13, 2015 from Open Road Media.
