About Murder Park by Sean Cregan
There’s a kidnapped five-year-old somewhere in the toxic ruins of northern Manila, stolen from the US and hidden away in the ‘Concrete Sea’, a failed district long fenced away by the local military in this near-future cyberpunk thriller from Sean Cregan, described as “one of the most talented and original voices out there” by Jason Pinter (The Fury, The Darkness), and “breathlessly classy” by The Telegraph.
To 19-year-old Ghost, former gangland abductee turned killer, framed for murder, little Sam is her ticket home. To Cole, professional thief whose last job went spectacularly wrong and cost the life of the woman he loved, he’s his path to redemption. To teenage Filipino gang member Eddie, grieving for his own little brother, he’s a way of getting revenge.
But Sam’s no ordinary kid, and they’re not the only ones looking for him. He’s the heir to a gangland empire like no other on Earth, hidden away by a member of an underground hacker group fearing for his life. The race to find him will run from the US East Coast to the typhoon-blasted sprawl of near-future Metro Manila and the street gang dueling ground they call ‘Murder Park’.
And finding him is just the start.
