It definitely qualifies as Scifi also. But it sounded very suspenseful. Plus it is available at FLP.

Here is a blurb from Amazon, taken from Publisher's Weekly (but it looks like it may contain some spoilers):

Spoiler:

Starred Review. This stellar new stand-alone from Morgan, known for his compelling future noir thrillers (Altered Carbon, etc.), raises tantalizing questions about the nature of humanity. Future governments have used genetic manipulation to create subhumans twisted to fit specialized tasks. Normal people are intrigued as well as repulsed, but they instinctively dread variation thirteen, an aggressive, ruthless throwback to a time before civilization. When a thirteen escapes from exile on Mars and apparently goes on an insane killing spree, Carl Marsalis, a soul-weary freelance thirteen hit man, is hired to help track him down. Morgan goes beyond the SF cliché of the genetically enhanced superman to examine how personality is shaped by nature and experience. Marsalis is more empathetic than the normal people around him, but they can see him only as an untrustworthy killer. At the same time, surveying corrupt, fractured normal society, the novel questions whether the thirteens are just less successful at hiding their motives. Without slowing down the headlong rush of the action, the complex, looping plot suggests that all people may be less—or more—than they seem. (July)

The scavenger's daughter is currently 99 cents on amazon. In case it wins or if someone wants to read it regardless.

Thanks for that - snatched it up as it's usually $4.99.

Crap, Jon. Why didn't you nominate that earlier? I would have gladly seconded that one. Looks like the most interesting of the bunch.
