Kind of an origin story for Pepper, a character who appeared in Buckell’s Xenowealth series (Crystal Rain, etc.). He’s a bionic man doing what bionic men do, fight for their masters. Here he has only one memory of himself, that of someone using racial epithets against him. The rest has been wiped by ShinnCo, which has booby-trapped Pepper’s equipment so that he’ll die if he doesn’t follow their orders. Can he win his freedom by killing for them? Nothing particularly deep here, but a well written plot and I don’t think I could ever get enough of Pepper. He’s super human but not so much that I thought he’d necessarily win.

A tale of modern slavery. Aliens have arrived, people that matter have moved off-planet and Pepper is owned (and branded) by ShinnCo. An upgraded cyborg, he can only earn his freedom by preventing others escaping ShinnCo. ( )
