The Neon Heart
The Synthetic Albatross: Book Two
A Sci-Fi Novella

With the payment from his last job on the line, Corporate Operative, Reggie, has to return to a place he swore he would never go again. Teaming up with Teal and her squad from a competing company, he must go to Earth, to one of the amalgamated cities spread across the surface, and find something that may not even exist. Cutting through the megalopolis is a place soaked in superstition and dread. As savage and dangerous as the city is, the Wall is much, much worse.
