The Different Faces of KJ
KJ's New Book
The City—the last bastion on a distant desert planet.
Daryl is released from the brutal confines of the Prison. Broken and suicidal, the ex-convict tries to disappear into the restrictive caste system.
Lyons Emmett is the ruthless head of Madman, the most powerful organization in the Criminal underworld. He is fixated on ruling the City and exterminates anyone he perceives as a threat.
Ripping Daryl from obscurity, Lyons corners the former thief into a perilous mission. He isn’t above sending his fearsome enforcer, Jace Locket, to emphasize what will happen should Daryl refuse. To escape these callous machinations, Daryl turns to an unlikely group of assassins, freaks, inventors and outcasts. But in the City, there are precious few people anyone can trust.
The new thriller by debut author K.J. Southworth uses fast-paced action to explore an immersive world full of unique characters.
