Masterfully written dystopian noir standalone from the author of the City-States Cycle series.

It’s election time in New Babylon, and President Maggie Delgado is running for re-election but is threatened by the charismatic populist Ted Rust. Newly appointed City Commissioner Georg Ratner is given the priority task to fight the recent invasion of Synth in the streets of the capital, a powerful hallucinogen drug with a mysterious origin. When his old colleague asks him for help on another case and gets murdered, things become more and more complicated, and his official neutrality becomes a burden in the political intrigue he his gradually sucked into. Supported by Laura, his trustful life partner and the Egyptian goddess Nut, Ratner decides to fight for what he believes in, no matter the cost.

Brief, staccato chapters sparkle with surprising twists … Though Georg finally realizes that he’s just another bear in the circus, he is content with his role. In the stark novel, life is smothered by a mutually parasitic culture.
