Summary :

Johnny is running around with hundreds of megabytes of data locked away in his head, secured by a password so only the proper buyer can unlock and download the data. Problem is, he's being chased by a high tech hitman with super human speed and a deadly monofilament whip that slices so fine the victim doesn't know he's dead until he collapses in pieces.

His only hope is Molly, a Lo Tek -- a member of an underground society living on the fringes of civilization... which is the only way to live in freedom. There, she will take him to the Killing Floor -- and save his life.
