Company Town by Madeline Ashby

The novel “Company Town” by Madeline Ashby was published for the first time in 2016.

Go Jung-Hwa works as a bodyguard for sex workers in New Arcadia, a city built on the Atlantic Ocean around an old oil rig. She accompanies them to their “dates” to make sure that nothing bad happens to them, but that type of protection is not enough because there seems to be a serial killer who’s targeting them.

The moment is difficult for Hwa but her life has always been difficult. For this reason, she is surprised when she receives a job offer from Zachariah Lynch, who bought New Arcadia and is investing in a new development project. His son Joel received death threats that are definitely out of the ordinary since they appear to come from another timeline and need a bodyguard.
