Xero knows what she wants: absolute rule over Southern Arizona, a cure for the superbug that's killing her best friend, and a decent bar of soap. Some are easier to get than others. The dreaded Zaps are dissolving Trina's lungs, and only a rare medication can save her. No problem: Xero is an expert smuggler. As the ruler of the Tucson Exiles, she hustles supplies for the government and then pumps the desert full of illegal designer drugs on the sly. Catastrophe looms when Yuma goes kaboom, and Trina's cure is destroyed along with it. All that remains is a complicated web spun from Xero's biggest demons: money, germs, and drugs. As she struggles to dig up some Ketacillin, one thought stays with her: Who do you have to kill to get some soap and a hot shower? The body count climbs as Xero struggles to protect her friends and stay clean in a very dirty world.

The experience was not particularly enjoyable. The book was thought provoking and disturbing. It is a very good example of a dystopian world story.
Xero, the main character, I liked in one chapter and cringed at her actions in the next.
P. J. Morgan bought the story to life.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
