    My biggest complaint about Chasing Filthy Lucre is its length At 46 pages it comes in like a novelette or novella, but is still good The story of a distopian future was well thought out The characters were enjoy...

    I really enjoyed this and look forward to the next one Combines some of my favorite elements of Philip K Dick, William Gibson, and Richard Stark.

    In a grim future America, one company, RomaCorp, provides all goods and services to the city of New Eden The city had become what it was after a bunch of young idealists had taken over the in situ government with theories that sounded good on paper but, in practice, failed after a mere eighteen months The leaders of New Eden had come on television one day and said everyone was just on their own Now the population of the city was scraping by in a dirty existence to fund their next hookup to the wire

    Weber Rexall had been a soldier and then a cop when the collapse happened Now he eked out a living doing exhibition fights where sometimes he played the part of the winner, sometimes the loser Tonight he s paired against Johnny The Kid Berger, and is scheduled to be the victor.

    Between his appearances in Raul s basement fight ring, Rexall sidelines as a bodyguard for a data runner named Carroll Carroll s shop downloads critical or sensitive data into human data runners, and Rexall escorts them to the recipient of the data where it is uploaded and removed from the human carrier, a financially beneficial exchange for both the runner and the escort.

    Rexall, impressed with Berger s skills, includes him in this lucrative endeavor, but their very first job doesn t go well, leaving the data runner dead, Carroll near death, and his shop destroyed by RomaCorp With the he...

    When a greedy corporate power threatens the status quo in Weber Rexall s town and he s tasked to do something about it, nothing will stand in his way.Tough guy Rexall, his underground fighting ring cohort Berger, and a synthetic Serve O named Simmer are just three of the incredibly interesting characters Rush writes into Chasing Filthy Lucre, the first part in a novella series, one that entertains right from the first page.Rush seamlessly blends cyberpunk technology and post apocalyptic settings with deep characters the reader can truly feel for The tech itself is fascinating without giving anything away, when Rush describes the hothouse and its patrons, the remarkable imagery he puts together could easily have been pulled from a scene in today s world The scene descriptions, such as the underground fighting and the package delivery scene again without giving too much away are rich, and really paint a detailed picture in the reader s head...

    As a fan of both sci fi and mystery, I was both excited and suspect of how this would work To my surprise, this mix of William Gibson and Raymond Chandler worked quite well As a novella, it did offer some depth, as well as a punchy thread of a story I found the characters both believable and entertaining without the overbearing nature of a Dickens persona The story was quite interesting, and this particular setting could yield a lifetime of short stories, or several full length novels I would love to see this universe developed .In fact, that was my only real complaint, is that it was over before I wanted it to be.Great story, cool characters, and a nice, if unintentional thumb of the nose to the o...
