Rat Runners

Publisher: Corgi

Crime is a way of life for Nimmo: it’s the only reason he’s survived on his own this long. Avoiding detection in a city where everyone and everything is monitored 24/7 is certainly challenging but the young gang of criminals known as the Rat Runners have it down to a fine art.

Following the murder of a groundbreaking scientist, the Rat Runners are tasked with retrieving a mysterious box from the man’s daughter for an underworld crime boss. But Nimmo and the others soon find themselves caught up in a web of treachery, deception and violence so impenetrable that they may not make it out alive.

This is a thrilling sci-fi adventure featuring cool, edgy characters and a fast-paced, complex plot.
