Angel of the City
by R.J. Leahy
A vision of a dystopian future, as seen through the eyes of a brain damaged ex-policeman.
The 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 is captured by the government, a nameless, brain-damaged thief is hired to rescue her. It’s a suicide mission and he knows it, but it’s a job he can’t 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 drives a man to keep fighting, when he knows the terrible truth the future holds? Angel Of The City is a story of hope and survival in a broken world.
