This Week’s Review: Angel of the City

Freedom breeds uncertainty; uncertainty invites chaos.

Angel of the Cith - RJ LeahyThe last city on Earth is an overcrowded, festering metropolis of segregated quarters and ancient, ethnic hatreds. It is a city on the edge of starvation, slowly succumbing to the creeping death that has choked off the rest of the world.

When the leader of a nascent resistance movement, a woman known only as, The Angel of the City, is captured by the government, a nameless, brain-damaged thief is hired to rescue her. It is a suicide mission and he knows it. But this is a job he cannot refuse.

And if he can get her out, then what? Where do you go, when there is no place to go? How can you hide in a city tearing itself apart in a wholesale ethnic cleansing? What keeps you living, when you know the terrible truth the future holds?
