About the eBook:
Sometime in the near future. A hell-hold of an America. Where sometimes you can't tell the good buys from the bad guys.
Mullican (he) and Neely (she) are urban cops who (usually) protect the innocent, but along the way also stuff their own pockets, and kill off a few people that they (and we) really hate. That's the prerogative of the urban cop of the future, doubling as executioner, with your trial held right at the point of arrest.
Now Mulligan and Neely must also play detective, and find out who's killing off the male clientele at the cybersex bars. These are some of the nastiest killings the two cynical coppers have ever encountered.
No matter what you've read... You've never met a pair of cops like Dirty Coppers in this noirish nightmare of future America.
