Literature: Parrish Plessis
The Parrish Plessis series is a Cyberpunk trilogy by Marianne de Pierres. The series consists of Nylon Angel (2004), Code Noir (2004), and Crash Deluxe (2005).

Parrish Plessis lives in the Tert, a Wretched Hive on a poisoned stretch of the coast of Australia. She works, against her will, as a bodyguard for the sadistic gang leader Jamon Mondo. Her one ambition in life is to break free from his control and join the enigmatic Cabal Coomera. She thinks she's found her chance when popular newscaster Razz Retribution is murdered and rumor has it the Cabal is responsible. Parrish thinks she can track them down with the help of the two patsies who were set up to take the fall: a naive country boy named Sto and a man with a dangerous passion for racial purity named Loyl-me-Daac. At the same time, the sinister Io Lang comes to her with an offer she can't refuse: do him a little favor, and he'll get Mondo sent to death row. But what looked like her big break goes horribly awry, and Parrish finds herself taking the heat for Razz's murder. What's worse, she ends up infected by a parasite that begins slowly corrupting her body and mind. The Corruption is spreading, and Parrish has to find a way to stop it from destroying humanity even as the whole world starts hunting for her head.
