Published by: Headline

When dystopia meets crime fiction, the deadly cocktail that emerges is a sheer delight. When a garbage man is forced by the explosion of a dirty bomb in New York’s Times Square to become a killer for hire, he doesn’t expect the complications when his target becomes an evangelist’s daughter. Pining for his lost wife, our amoral hero embarks on a personal crusade where compassion and cruelty coexist against a background of urban desolation. Chandler meets Mickey Spillane meets I Am Legend: a unique combination.
