Publisher's Summary

Leader of the Los Angeles street gang Los Magos is assassinated by the rival El Diablos. As members of the Five Families, war between the two gangs could ignite the whole city, prompting a response from the Chronosoft Law Enforcement Division (CLED) that could destroy all the families. Artemis Bridge, the amoral fixer with the quick wit vows to stay out of the war despite his friendship with ex-footballer turned gangland revolutionary Stonewall, new leader of Los Magos. Bridge is reluctantly pulled into the middle of the worst civil unrest since the 2027 riots, where he discovers the war is more than a little tribal bloodletting between rivals. This fast-paced, action-packed cyberpunk thriller is the third in the critically acclaimed Bridge Chronicles series, sequel to Under the Amoral Bridge and The Know Circuit.

Iam enjoying this series The Bridge Chronicles. The main protagonist is gutsy, clever and decisive. I’ll take my heroes flawed thanks and Artemis Bridge is about as suspect a role model as anyone could ask for. He’s not just the guy who knows a guy, he’s the guy who’s working every angle, turning even the most horrible events into a morally ambivalent victory.

This is the 3rd book in the Tribe trilogy. I have not read the 2 previous installments. While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I think I would have enjoyed it even more had I listened to the previous books in the series. The author goes over some of the previous story. A very basic overview to get you caught up, he also weaves some of the background of the previous stories into this book so you know some of the backstory of the situations. I would still start at the beginning of the series.

Entertaining, interesting and enjoyable story. Corporate control gone wild. A world where cities are now governed by corporations. Which if you really stop and think about things in today's world is plausible, in the aspect that some companies are to powerful. Gangs(tribes) that are evolving, influenced either politically, by the corporations and still others have their own ideas.

Artemis Bridge the fixer, is the man who can get whatever you need or want illegal, immoral or otherwise questionable. Every situation has an angle to be worked. Good or bad. Even in a fight between the families and the mayor he finds a solution to the gang wars.

Autonomous zone. Interesting. Great Epilogue

Good story with a great cast of characters. Plenty of twists and turns, double dealing, action, suspense and unusual technology.

Joe Hemple does a really good job with the narration. This is the first time I have listened to anything he has narrated. Nice voice easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken. Smooth even pace. Good character voices, even female characters. Perfect voice for narrating audiobooks.
