Avery Cates is a bad man. As a Gunner, a hired killer in a brutal and bleak future Earth where a united government is just a prelude to the ultimate collapse of society and biology, Cates finds himself drawn into the center of the storm, an active player in the apocalyptic events that are ending man's time on Earth. But when you're not a good man you can't be a hero.

"Somers's plot sprints along through the nicely detailed ... world, but the characters are the real prize in this entertaining near-future noir."
