Product Description

The gritty follow-up to Toby Ball’s acclaimed noir thriller The Vaults takes us back to his dystopian City, fifteen years later . . .

The second book in the City Trilogy, Scorch City is a dark and unsettling thriller of urban unease. Journalist Frank Frings rouses Lt. Piet Westermann in the middle of the night with an unusual request: move the body of a dead blonde from where she was found—on the bank of a river near the utopian Uhuru Community, a shantytown under threat from a deadly coalition of racists and anticommunists—and find out how the body actually got there. As the investigation deepens, the deaths and disappearances add up, and the detectives of the City must uncover the truth behind Uhuru and the murders, while keeping their own dark secrets hidden within the streets of the unforgiving City.


Toby Ball works at the Crimes Against Children Research Center and the Family Research Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire. He is the author of The Vaults and Invisible Streets, also available from The Overlook Press, and lives in Durham, New Hampshire, with his wife and two child
