The Many Lives of Inez Wick is a collection of short stories surrounding Inez Wick. A self-appointed eco-terrorist who plots to save the world while trying not to get herself killed.
In the story of "The Bike Mechanic", Inez shows up at Seward's Custom Repair shop with her bike in tow and looking to go underground. Homeland Security is on the hunt and Inez is their only suspect in a water bottling company explosion. Inez turns to Dan Seward, a one time eco-terrorist himself, to get herself out of town and into a new identity. However, it doesn't go as she intends.
With "Lady Aqua", we learn how the water bottling company is stealing all the fresh water and replacing it with bio-hazard waste. We hear her thoughts as she sets the explosives and the aftermath of her choices.
"Beyond Peaking", Inez isn't overly concerned about the environment, other than what her boyfriend shares. Upon hearing some terrible news on the television, she stuffs her attic full of gasoline before the wells go dry. The consequences of those actions are not exactly what one would have hoped for.
In the book entitled "Dog Fight", Inez keeps her wits about her as she struggles with sex slave traders and folks who would kill her just so they can stay alive.
"No Compromise" has her in China, getting set up to destroy a coal burning plant that is destroying the ecology that surrounds the area.
In "Apophis" she's an assistant to a physics professor, who is also her lover. After asking for her hand in marriage, Inez scoffs at him as she realizes that they don't quite add up and the collision course of the asteroid that is to pass between the earth and the moon may be too close to bargain for.
