Eidolon by E.S. Yu
Vax is an assassin without a past, working for a corporation without a conscience. When bioaugmentation giant Cyrex Corp sends him to assassinate journalist Zai Lumero, he thinks it’ll be a straightforward job. With his bioaugments, he’s never botched a job before. But then Vax unexpectedly fails his assignment and realizes he’s become the newest addition to Cyrex’s hit list.
The last thing Vax wants is to partner with a justice crusader who hates his profession, but he doesn’t have a choice. Zai is the only one who can expose Cyrex’s secrets and take the company down. And what starts as mutual hostility soon gives way to Vax’s grudging admiration for Zai’s determination…and possibly something more.
Yet as they race against time to unearth Cyrex’s secrets, Vax begins to suspect that Zai is hiding something from him…and that, somehow, they’ve met before. Learning about his past is everything Vax thought he wanted, but he’s not prepared for the possibility that the truth of who he is might destroy him.
