Serial Box will release Ninth Step Station in bundled ebook and audio, a crime procedural taking place in a future version of Tokyo. Ninth Step Station carries the forward momentum of CSI and Law & Order or a Tana French book, while also maintaining the futuristic political intrigue of Netflix’s Altered Carbon, which is itself based on the novel by Richard K. Morgan. The series was written by the blockbuster team of Malka Older, Fran Wilde, Jacqueline Koyanagi, and Curtis C. Chen. You can read more about the author team here.
The world of Ninth Step Station takes place after years of disaster and conflict have left Tokyo split among great powers.
In the city of drone-enforced borders, bodymod black markets, and desperate resistance movements, US peacekeeper Emma Higashi is assigned to partner with Tokyo Metropolitan Police Detective Miyako Koreda.
Together, they must race to solve a series of murders that test their relationship and threaten to overturn the balance of global power. And amid the chaos, they each need to decide what price they are willing to pay for peace.
Since launch, Serial Box has been featured in outlets like NPR, Wired, BuzzFeed, i09, Vox, The Verge, Mashable, Deadline, Fox, CNet, Den of Geek, Forbes, Mental Floss, Product Hunt, and more.
Serial Box brings everything that’s awesome about TV to what was already cool about books. Read or listen to carefully crafted episodes written by award winning and bestselling teams of writers delivered to your phone weekly throughout three month seasons.
