From publisher blurb:
Money is power? Knowledge is power? Maybe where you come from, but around here, power is power.
After the Great War, the twin cities of Niagara Falls, New York and Ontario remained empty for decades, except for the occasional scrappers who searched them for ever-decreasing salvage.
Then Ma Parker and her associates arrived. She and her crew repaired the hydroelectric generators along the Niagara River and got electricity flowing to what was now a single city known as the Falls.
The Falls thrives and is famous for the electric lights that brighten the sky at night. Travelers flock to its trading posts, gambling dens, saloons, and entertainment halls. Some claim the Falls is decadent and filled with immorality, but the people who live there see it as the best chance for humanity’s survival.
