The choked, post-Corporation Wars city of Darke Prospect is ruled with an iron grip by the ruthless Charles Darke, head of the conglomerate which owns this hive of misery, crime and exploitation. Darke craves control above all else, and is prepared to do anything and use anyone to maintain it.
In this bleak world, though, ripples are starting to stir on the water which Darke prefers to be still and unbroken. Seemingly unconnected players are being brought together, one thing linking them inextricably; Darke Prospect. Unknown to these people, the web in which they are now entangled may change the world in which they live forever.
Ripples on Darke Water is a short story anthology which forms the first novel in the Darke Future series.
