Elaborate Description


Lex is a disgraced racer who is in desperate need of an income.  Trying to pay off massive debts, to unsavory people, Lex takes jobs as a freelance courier and chauffeur.  For this one package, discretion is not just advised, it is needed.  The package needs to be delivered without a corporation knowing about it.  A corporation that owns most of the communication and routes between the plants.  In between the delivery, Lex finds out that the one who requested the delivery, has died in an accident with many others.  It becomes evident that the corporation is willing to sacrifice innocent lives to prevent the package from being delivered.  But what is so important in this package to warrant such an aggressive response?  What secrets does the package hold that are worth killing over?  Along the way, Lex is on a journey of self-discovery, and attempts to become a better person.  Maybe with the help with a certified mad scientist, and the scientist’s seemingly petty A.I. which does not adhere to the laws of robotics, can they figure out why the corporation wants to eliminate anyone with the knowledge of the package.


As this book has a character development theme, it may take some time to sympathize with the main character.
