Overview

In the violent world of post-apocalyptic South Town, Eli Baxter is king, ruling from the thirteenth floor of his building while henchman do his bidding. Simon Gray, a talented young thief, now disillusioned with South Town, is desperate to escape with the woman he loves. As he plots their journey north, glimpses of his childhood in South India and Northern Ontario reveal the world as it once was, fueling his desire to break away. But when he's handed a new job, one that will make Eli untouchable, Simon realizes that escape - and transcendence to love and a peaceful way of life - might be harder than he thought.

Ottawa Review of Books - Alex Binkley
Matt Mayr paints a grim but plausible picture of grinding poverty, endless violence and revenge. The novel's protagonist, Simon Gray, seeks a way out of the urban chaos of South Town in order to return to the small farm of his parents.
