This is the second in the Quinsigamond series and while events follow on after the first book it's not necessary to have read Box Nine prior to this one. The main characters from the previous story are only represented here mainly by their absence and who will fill the power vacuum they've left in their wake. It's only the factory town itself that returns with added flavour as the various gangs jockey for position after the departure of Cortez.Set to this undercurrent, the main arc of this book concentrates on a subset of the community known as the jammers. Radio pirates that gather together at a club called Wireless. Up until now they've been happy to play their pranks of disrupting radio broadcasts but the younger generation of the group want to up the ante a little and target radio masts for destruction. G.T. Flynn is the man caught in the middle of this schism and he tries to hold both parties together as one big family. Mentored into the group by Wallace Browning (accountant, champion ballroom dancer and dwarf) he has himself introduced into the group Hazel, who has since gone on to lead the more rebellious section. Then there's the infamous O'Zebedee brothers to consider who continue their own brand of airplay hijacking but remain unseen. Add in an ex-FBI agent intent on stopping this brand of disorder with the help of some benzine and a naked flame and you have an explosive mix.This series has an almost cyberpunk feel about it with definite noirish overtones. I've enjoyed both books I've read so far and will certainly carry on with the next (the next two in the series are already sitting on my tbr shelves).
