From the back cover:
Escaped Germline soldiers need to be cleaned up, and Stan Resnick is the best man for the job. A job that takes him to every dark spot and every rat hole he can find.
Operatives from China and Unified Korea are gathering escaped or stolen Russian and American genetics, and there are reports of new biological nightmares: half-human things, bred to live their entire lives encased in powered armor suits.
Stan fights to keep himself alive and out of prison while he attempts to capture a genetic, one who will be able to tell them everything they need to know about this new threat, the one called "Project Sunshine."
Publishers Weekly gives CHIMERA a starred review and calls it "impressively deep and profoundly moving... breathtaking and heartrending, this is the future of military science fiction."
In addition to his novels, T.C. McCarthy's short fiction has appeared in both literary and genre magazines, including Per Contra, Story Quarterly, and Nature, and in 2012 he won the Compton Crook award for his debut novel, GERMLINE.
