SR 102: Deniable Assets
LOST SECRETS ARE THE DEADLIEST SECRETS OF ALL... Shadowrunner Katar Hawke knows the score on the streets. Every job is to be executed swiftly and simply-no muss¸ no fuss¸ and with as little help as possible. But when an extraction of a seemingly ordinary grad student from a Central American dig goes south in a big way¸ Hawke has to keep them both alive while he figures out what he's stumbled into-and how to get out of it in one piece. But nothing about this shadowrun is remotely ordinary. The student¸ Rachel Gordon¸ has unearthed an artifact linking the Sixth World and the long gone¸ magical Second World. The discovery sets off a lethal chain reaction of feuding megacorporations and cold-blooded killers who will do anything to get their hands on her and what she knows. Caught in the hardest of hard places¸ Hawke must break his cardinal rule and assemble his own shadowrunning team to survive what's coming at him. But in the end¸ it all comes down to one question: will he sell out Rachel to the highest bidder¸ or join her on a quest that could change the face of the Sixth World forever?
