Cutter Dunn was born a ghost. Unchipped and unregistered, he exists as a nonperson, living off-the-grid, unrecognized by the facial recognition software built into every smart glass device that provides everyone with everything they want and need. According to the official system, he doesn't even exist.
He has the skills and out-of-the-box perspective to design the nuts-and-bolts mechanism for the next generation of driverless shipping vehicles. He's also the kind of person that a massively wealthy and corrupt corporation can exploit and make disappear without a trace. For good measure, they also erased his home settlement of Amenity, bulldozing the dwellings, scattering the residents. And that was their big mistake.
Because Cutter knows they can't track what they can't trace. And they won't know what he's planning until it hits them.
Burnout is a new stand-alone science fiction thriller by masters of storytelling, Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant. If you like movies like Falling Down and Snatch, then you'll love Burnout.

I was checking out books on NetGallery when I saw this one. Seeing the cover, reading the description, I decided to give it a go! I will admit I thought it was about actual ghosts, realizing first chapter in that ghosts held a different meaning.
The world today is a messed up place, and sadly I can imagine it becoming a society like this. Or maybe it already has and my eyes just don't see it.
Well written, quite the adventure! I thank NetGallery, the authors and publisher for the chance to read it. Totally out of my normal read.
Wow! What else can I say.... al.most posted after the first chapter as a DNF but persevered and it was SO worth it. Supposedly futuristic SF but excuse me, all too possible and then some right now! Wake up, world, when people with morals cede control to machines and people without, life as we know it ends... read and learn and stand up for right and wrong...PLEASE!
