Gunners of the White Cliffs: The Gunners Trilogy, Book I
New fiction by author Todd Woofenden. Print edition coming August, 2017.
From his resting place in a cavern beneath the cliffs, a hunter armed with twin ten-inch double-edged blades hears guard transports approaching, rumbling up the road drawn by teams of the finest horses of the southlands, carrying kill squads with cutter guns. Rushing out onto the terraces above the road, he comes across two girls running from the guards, inexplicably still alive. A pair of southern strays has not only crossed the borderlands, but has made it all the way up into the passes.
A tracker known for his ability to find high-value government targets swears off the work when a job goes badly and his handler is killed. But when the killer escapes from prison and assassinates a government advisor near the tracker’s summer lodge, he is drawn back into the hunt. Now, just as the hunt is getting under way for a second time, a girl who finds herself lost in the patterns of things around her is drawn into the pattern, herself. Is she the target this time?
As the hunter discovers what the strays have brought with them, the tracker tries to figure out his target and stop a killing spree.
