Under the Amoral Bridge by Gary A. Ballard
In a future world, Artemis Bridge was the guy to contact to get or accomplish almost anything. Bridge always knew a guy, but never touched anything himself, so he couldn’t be incriminated. He made a living by being the “bridge” between the buyer and seller. He was called Amoral because of his lack of morals by connecting these people. On one of the job connections, his contact was killed and got him stuck with an incriminating video of the mayor. He can’t get rid of it, and people are after him to get it. Now, he is in danger, along with the one person in the world that he loved.
This was my first Steam Punk novel, and I didn’t know what to expect. This was not my typical read at all. It was well written and descriptive. I could easily imagine the world. The author did well with giving a vivid image of who Bridge was and what he was like. He wasn’t really someone I would be friends with.
The story was fast paced and had a good amount of action. I honestly don’t think it was really my kind of story, so I wasn’t too into it. I did find some things interesting, especially the depiction of the world, and it makes me wonder if our world is headed that way at all, especially with the government.
It was a good read, and I may give the rest of the series a try in the future.
