Hunter's RunBook - 2008
Awakening in the uncharted mountains of the planet of São Paulo with no memory of his identity, exploited prospector Ramon Espejo experiences gradual and traumatic flashbacks of violent scenes from his past that cause him to realize he is being hunted by mysterious alien overseers. Reprint.
Running from poverty and hopelessness, Ramón Espejo boarded one of the great starships of the mysterious, repulsive Enye. But the new life he found on the far-off planet of São Paulo was no better than the one he abandoned. Then one night his rage and too much alcohol get the better of him. Deadly violence ensues, forcing Ramón to flee into the wilderness.
Mercifully, almost happily alone—far from the loud, bustling hive of humanity that he detests with sociopathic fervor—the luckless prospector is finally free to search for the one rich strike that could make him wealthy. But what he stumbles upon instead is an advanced alien race in hiding: desperate fugitives, like him, on a world not their own. Suddenly in possession of a powerful, dangerous secret and caught up in an extraordinary manhunt on a hostile, unpredictable planet, Ramón must first escape . . . and then, somehow, survive.
And his deadliest enemy is himself.
After awakening in the uncharted mountains of the planet of Säao Paulo with no memory of his identity, Ramâon Espejo experiences flashbacks of scenes from his past that reveal that he is being hunted by mysterious alien overseers.
