Bad City

In this inventive dystopian read, the future is bleak. Eli Baxter rules South Town with an iron fist, and traitors don’t live long. Idealistic and talented thief Simon is desperate to escape — but will a new assignment from Eli hold him back?

Eli Baxter is king, ruling from the thirteenth floor of his building while henchman do his bidding. Simon Gray, a talented young thief, now disillusioned with South Town, is desperate to escape with the woman he loves. As he plots their journey north, glimpses of his childhood in South India and Northern Ontario reveal the world as it once was, fueling his desire to break away. But when he's handed a new job, one that will make Eli untouchable, Simon realizes that escape - and transcendence to love and a peaceful way of life - might be harder than he thought.


"Edgy, violent, wildly imaginative, surprisingly touching. There are ideas and scenes in Matt Mayr's Bad City that even the most jaded post-apocalyptic fan will find fresh, inventive, and utterly breathtaking." -- Craig Davidson, author

"In Bad City, Matt Mayr captures with raw vividness what happens when the surfaces of civilization are peeled away, revealing a sheer will to survive that reduces humans to their ugliest essences. Brutal and grimy as Bad City’s post-apocalyptic, dystopian world is, though, there remain hints and tendrils of human longings and even tenderness -– slight sprigs of possibility. A remarkable portrait of a world gone very wrong, as chilling as prophecy." -- Joan Barfoot, award-winning author
