A loner. An outcast. A killer.
A hundred years into the future, in a near-totalitarian state, there exists
a group of feared Government assassins called The Black Shadow
Corps. They are albinos, able to send their inner shadow to kill in the
name of the law.
Tarris Waite is leader of The Black Shadow Corps. But she is different
from them, visibly marked by her pale blue eyes. Her teammates
consider her a half-breed, to be feared and despised.
A childhood accident left Tarris a paraplegic, yet she has never given up

But Tarris soon learns that nothing is as it seems. Suddenly, even the
most trusted members of her Shadow Corps team are suspect. Could

When her loyalty is questioned, Tarris is left with no choice but to run.
She is driven underground, where she discovers a horrifying secret that
threatens the very fabric of society. Now Tarris is in a desperate fight to
save her life and, more importantly, to save those who turned their back
on her. But no one ever leaves the Corps alive.
