Description

"Slanted Jack": a novel that bobs and weaves, takes you on a headlong race through a strange but believable future, and never slows down. The job looks simple enough: Jon Moore, the nanotech-enhanced, world-weary, soldier of fortune, agrees to help a con man, a friend from a part of his past he'd rather forget, protect a very special young boy. The deal doesn't stay simple, as each move Jon and Lobo make results in more danger and more enemies. The situation grows even more complicated when a beautiful woman with an unclear agenda joins them in their quest. The best con man Jon's ever known, a ruthless gang boss, a heavily armed group of religious fanatics, and an interstellar government out to clean up a dangerous frontier world rush together toward an explosive climax-and Jon and Lobo are caught in the middle. "Slanted Jack" is the second novel in the "Jon & Lobo" series.
