Walk into the Sun: A Novel of New York After the Default

In 1975, New York City faced a massive budget deficit and feared it could not pay its city workers. Their potential default was national front-page news. Thirty-four years later - with nationwide bank closings, bankruptcies of major corporations, enormous layoffs and the largest national deficit in history - might that ugly specter of default be facing New York again?

Publisher's Summary

In 1975, New York City faced a massive budget deficit and feared it could not pay its city workers. Their potential default was national front-page news. Thirty-four years later - with nationwide bank closings, bankruptcies of major corporations, enormous layoffs and the largest national deficit in history - might that ugly specter of default be facing New York again? After all, it is currently happening today, in Washington, D.C., where a bankrupt city has lost its public service personnel, garbage litters the streets and rats have made the district buildings their homes. In Walk into the Sun, it is 2009 and the unthinkable has happened to New York City. That city is in default. However, this is not a story of the saving of the city. Rather, it is a tale of the people who make up its body. From the garbage man to the Bowery cop to the sewer-dwelling orphan. From the advertising executive and his dying son to the widow killer and his prey. From the Mayor's aide to the Governor's wife to the last remaining doctor in New York City. The story shows the effects of the default; the walkouts by police, firefighters and sanitation workers. Looters and snipers taking over the streets. Uncollected garbage bringing rats. And rats bringing the worst form of disease. How such varied characters deal with this horror and ultimately come together - not to save the city, but themselves - is the basis of Walk into the Sun.
