Data Runner by Sam A. Patel

A brilliant example of how good self-publishing can be, Sam A. Patel’s debut novel Data Runner mixes the zen-like philosophy of parkour with cyberpunk data smuggling goodness. Only the best are chosen to smuggle data on hidden computer chips hidden on the forearms of parkour artists who run through the city to avoid detection by people who want to intercept the data. Can’t recommend this one strongly enough.
