Kieran Shea’s debut novel has the author taking the leap from detective fiction to all out sci-fi with a brash new heroine, Koko Martstellar.
Five hundred years from now, ex-corporate mercenary Koko Martstellar is swaggering through an easy early retirement as a brothel owner on The Sixty Islands, a manufactured tropical resort archipelago known for its sex and simulated violence. Surrounded by slang-drooling boy whores and synthetic komodo dragons, Koko finds the most challenging part of her day might be deciding on her next drink. That is, until her old comrade Portia Delacompte sends a squad of security personnel to murder her.
Fans can rest easy because a follow-up book, “Koko the Mighty,” is already scheduled to be released in June 2015.
