On a future Earth where corporations have all but taken over the rule of law, Sabra makes her living as a star of arena combat. A “gladiator” in a sport that has roots in blood sports from knife fighting to wrestling, Sabra wins her battles, even when her opponents fight dirty. Then her arena manager manipulates her into taking a lucrative bodyguard contract for a corporate head.
A rival corp has been interfering with the exclusive deal Vuest has to distribute a particular drug. Sabra’s mission is to keep the head of Vuest safe while his merc team deals with the rival’s mercs. Tensions escalate, and Sabra finds herself targeted. She needs every ally she’s got to make it out alive, preferably with her reputation still intact. Even the unexpected allies, like her estranged brother.
In the end, everything comes down to whether Sabra and her brother can work together in a valiant attempt to stop the war and settle the feud before any more deaths occur.
A science fiction adventure tale of power, justice, and redemption, Bodyguard of Lies speaks to a hope for change that lies in each of us.
