Nylon Angel - Marianne de Pierres

Cyberpunk with a bit more of a post-apocalyptic flavour. Parish Pleiss is either a gun moll with a muscle function, or muscle with a gun moll function, as she is decent enough looking to attract a local crime lord's attention. She does what she has to do to get by.

Set in the 'Tert', a regional part of Australia that has suffered a lot of degradation, and the people there are kept out of Viva City, which is presumably probably Sydney of some sort, because they do not have any money.

Parrish gets caught up in a plot involving genetics, information, possible alien parasites, among other things. She ends up breaking out of her situation and involved in something with much higher staks.

4 out of 5
