Earth, 2144. Jack is an anti-patent scientist turned drug pirate, traversing the world in a submarine as a pharmaceutical Robin Hood, fabricating cheap medicines for those who can't otherwise afford them. But her latest drug hack has left a trail of lethal overdoses as people become addicted to their work, doing repetitive tasks until they become unsafe or insane. Hot on her trail is an unlikely pair: Eliasz, a brooding military agent, and his indentured robotic partner, Paladin.

The blurb lead me to believe there was a lot more scifi/cyberpunk than there is. The blurb also touched on an unconventional relationship when it turned there was much more than just a touch. Also a lot of gender politics and sexuality commentary. The book I wanted was not what I was sold.
