I don't know if anybody here reads the webcomic A Girl And Her Fed
- a little comic about cyborgs, civil liberties, and the ghost of Benjamin Franklin - but a few months back the author put out a novel in the same setting. The book is titled The Digital Divide - though it has been out for months I just picked it up yesterday.
Both the book and the webcomic are excellent fodder for a Spycraft campaign.
Essentially the very beginnings of a cyberpunk world - five years ago a group of five hundred agents are given implants that tie them into a single communications and intelligence network.
Unfortunately, there are... side effects, mostly in the form of the interface. The side effects are dealt with by the administration of large quantities of drugs. Which also have side effects.
The agents are given make work jobs - too drugged and too distracted by the interface to be useful, or even to function in a normal fashion.
At the beginning of the comic there are many fewer agents than started in the project.
The Fed is given the job of watching the Girl for the Department of Homeland Security - she is not suspected of having committed any crimes, she is merely a Person of Interest.
The job goes pear shaped when she realizes that somebody has been going through her mail.
The novel centers around Rachel Peng - a minor character in the comic.
Another five years have passed since the beginning of the comic. The surviving members of the project have gone public.
Rachel Peng has been seconded to the Washington D.C. Metro police.
And a series of crimes that may have ties to the project has just escalated to murder....
The villain is an excellent example of Mastermind - organized, and a planner, with multiple fallback strategies....
Well worth the $5, whether purchased on Smashwords
A second series has been begun, which the author refers to as 'Josh Smut' - the adventures of Josh Glassman, cyborg, adventurer, man about town, and bon vivant. A call back to the 'spicy' spy fiction of the '60s. (I have not purchased this one yet... but, ummm... in the comic Josh is kind of a slut....)
