This is a very good adventure revolving around Gerry Rosen, a staff reporter for a local alternative newspaper in post disaster St. Louis. It has been almost a year since a major earthquake devastated this large city. But, though the local authorities have repeatedly advised that they could handle the reconstruction and law enforcement issues, the Emergency Relief Authority (ERA) refuses to leave. When another reporter begins investigating this odd behavior, he ends up dead. Gerry is able to retrieve his notes--and something else--which puts him on the short list of the unknown assassin.

I enjoyed this book very much. It was written--in 1994--as a near-future Sci-Fi adventure, and does a pretty good job. The only thing--and this is minor--was his basic computer technology was a little dated (DOS). But that took nothing from this otherwise great action adventure. 4 of 5 stars :o)

An interesting view of an American city in the aftermath of a major earthquake and the power struggles that ensues.
