The ninth volume of the Transmetropolitan series, this book combines dark humor with biting cynicism to portray journalist Spider Jerusalem's one-man crusade against the duplicitous President Callahan in a not too distant future. With all of his evidence destroyed, Spider desperately tracks down a drug-addicted prostitute who possesses physical proof of the President's corrupt practices and secret assassinations. But with Callahan declaring martial law in the city and Spider suffering from an advancing degenerative brain disease, time may have just run out on the violent journalist's quest to expose the truth.
