SR 024: Preying for Keeps
Played For A Sucker
When ace shadowrunner Jack Skater leads his team of commandos in a raid on an elven ocean freighter¸ things get a little sticky. Yakuza hitmen crash the party¸ and a Japanese shaman whips up a titanic sea creature just to make sure nobody gets out alive. Now¸ having escaped with his troops by the skin of their teeth¸ Skater wants to find out who set him up.
But it isn't going to be easy. Because the runners are stuck up to their pointy ears in a sinister super-scheme that involves Skater's ex-wife¸ two elven gene corporations¸ a ruthless mafioso named McKenzie¸ and stolen data disks containing secrets worth killing for. It's a high-tech mega-mess with no way out. And as a ghastly virus hits Seattle¸ unleashing hordes of homicidal cannibals onto the streets¸ Skater and company have to bring in some heavy artillery just to stay alive....
