Hired Guns by Mark Boss

Hector Tombs is a paroled LA gangbanger working a security job for a massive corporation. That all disintegrates when an employee guns down several of his co-workers, including Hector's girlfriend. When the shooter is finally taken down, Tombs is surprised to see a big, slimy slug wriggle its way out of the gunman's body. He captures the slug and takes it to the company's CEO, Stephen Corrada.

This might have been a mistake, as Hector then gets in the middle of an international battle between Corrada and an old rival, who has sinister plans for these bizarre slugs. 

Hired Guns is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller. Boss has clearly done his homework on everything from prosthetic limbs to computer hacking. But he never lets his research get in the way of delivering a fun story.
