About this title


The most dangerous commodity of all...

Joe "Skid" Marak, aka the pilot, is a compulsive smuggler.  For him, borders are an outrage to freedom.  He lives with his pet rat in the abandoned spire of Manhattan's TransCom Building.  His friends are outcasts in a world ripped by plague and repression.  The pilot knows his days are numbered.  On his ECM-pak, he watches helplessly as his freetrading comrades vanish from the screen: victims of a mysterious force known only as "Bokon Taylay."

The brother of his Rollerblading, go-go-dancing girlfriend is Taylay's latest victim.  All that is left behind is a smuggled message telling the pilot he must locate the one man who can break Taylay's code, the legendary author of the Smuggler's Bible--a man who may not even exist.  It's a risk worth taking.  Because to the pilot, there's only one contraband more valuable than life--freedom.
From the Paperback edition.


Even for a smuggler, the Pilot lives on the edge. There seems to be no vehicle he can't master and eventually destroy in the pursuit of his career, yet he never misses an issue of The Smuggler's Bible. When a mysterious man (or force) known as "Bokon Taylay" begins to take out all of the smugglers one by one, only the Pilot escapes Bokon's ever-tightening net. To save his comrades and keep the "free trader" lifestyle alive, the Pilot decides he must track down Forrest Hawkley, the (possibly mythical) man behind The Smuggler's Bible itself.
