Hammer Town

Conner, “The Hammer,” McVee has a score to settle and enough spare parts in her body to build a small car.

Tarent Powers destroyed her life, but even her enhanced abilities and her job as a police agent couldn’t get her close enough to the corporate mob boss to bring him down.

Now the key to his unraveling has fallen into her lap.

Can she do what’s necessary to make him pay even if it means destroying the life of an innocent young woman?

Come along for a ride in this future that corporate take-overs, plague and automation have made. A world where everything from crime, to central government, to the police are run by the corporations, and where a “mad” cult has sprung up whose members want to remake the world using hand tools and good, hard work.

“Conner McVee has a problem. She’s a throwback in a sterile world almost totally reliant on machines, and she’s a cop with ties to the underworld seeking revenge against the man who killed her lover. But when she sets a plot for revenge in motion, it turns into something far more than she ever bargained for. With the cops and criminals both after her, she’s got to fight back to protect herself, her new lover, and her way of life. That’s okay, she thinks fast, acts faster, and wields a modified nail gun. Maybe it’s not a problem after all. Action, attitude, sex, politics, and more attitude... Rosen has another winner!” - Rob Gates, free-lance writer & editor of “Spectrum”

“Selina Rosen writes an action adventure with a heroine who is as hard as nails and just as sharp. I guarantee, you won’t want to put this one down.” - Laura J. Underwood, author of Ard Magister and The Black Hunter

“Nobody creates tougher than nails heroines better than Selina Rosen. She’s outdone even herself with Conner “The Hammer” McVee, a cyborg who is half-human, half-machine, and all woman. Hammer Town is high-octane science fiction overflowing with adventure, humor, romance and blue collar sensibilities. Persons not enjoying this book must be diagnosed as entertainment impaired.” - Garrett Peck, co-editor of Personal Demons and Tooth & Claw
