The Blurb On The Back:
For generations the Freyls have ruled Springfield, Illinois, capital of a state of Great Lakes and rivers. Now convicted killer David Marion threatens their invincibility, and he threatens it from within their own ranks.
Water: it’s blue gold, and the price on world markets is soaring. When Springfield gets a new mayor, it finds its supply under threat, not only from corporations out for the money but from a disease that appears from nowhere, that nobody can identify and nobody can treat.
None of this interests David Marion until his own past surfaces and he finds himself caught between multinational leviathans at war over America’s heartland.
