From the back of the book:
It’s a screwed up city. Isolated from the rest of the UCAS, it’s haven for criminals - smugglers, syndicates, gangers. Legal criminals, too - megacorporations, governments, politicians.
As beautiful as she is dysfunctional, Seattle is urban sprawl amid rolling hills and forests nestled up to man-made wonders next door to natural and man-made disasters. Whether you’re a native or not, Seattle will draw you in like no other.
You can run for a lifetime and never leave Seattle, but some say you can’t run for a lifetime without entering.
