Staff Reviews

A highly unlikely heroine stumbles into an anonymous cult with heady aspirations. A wild cast of characters and brilliantly drawn settings knit together into a very unusual, totally engaging thriller. I can’t remember the last time I got so close to immediately rereading a book.

— Kay Wosewick

Lee is a seventeen-year-old-girl who has gotten into a bit of trouble. Not that she is innocent (a bit of kleptomaniac) or completely guilty either. She runs in with the wrong crowd, steals something that is not hers. and now she is on the run with nobody to turn to. Lee takes you into the underbelly of Philadelphia, the sections that people have abandoned, and attempts to solve the mystery she has fallen into, having to do with the famous artist Marcel Duchamp. Yes, Augustus Rose melds together a lot of information and story methods. He does it with amazing skill pulling on secret societies, hacking, art theft, conspiracies, drugs, and so much more. This plot moves, it does not slow down, it will drag you along with it to the conclusion, which will have you gasping for breath. Such a brilliant journey!

— Jason Kennedy


Lee Cuddy is seventeen years old and on the run, alone on the streets of Philadelphia.
