“Completely weird and still completely real. Delightful—I couldn't put it down."–Shea Serrano

"I devoured it."--Jonathan Lethem


A genre-bending thriller set in a future where you can have any body you want—if you can afford it.
 
In a New York wallowing in income inequality and yellow smog, Kobo has problems. He’s an out-of-date cyborg with healthcare loan sharks banging down his door. He barely scrapes by scouting gene-edited talent for a Big Pharma-run baseball league—but with a new prospect on his radar, things might be finally looking up. 
 
Then his brother—Monsanto Mets slugger J.J. Zunz—is murdered at home plate.
 
Determined to find the killer, Kobo plunges into a world of genetically modified CEOs, philosophical Neanderthals, and back-alley body modifications, only to find he's in a far bigger and more corrupt game than he could have imagined. To come out in one piece, he'll have to crack a case where both body and soul belong to the highest bidder—or his own life won’t be the only one at stake.
