Publisher's summary

In a far future US, the once-beautiful domed neo-Victorian city of Bridges is split between four crime families in an uneasy cease-fire. With social disparity increasing and its steam-driven infrastructure failing, a new faction is on the rise: the Red Dogs.

Jacqueline Spadros has a dream life: a wealthy husband, a powerful family. But her life is not what it seems. Kidnapped from her mother's brothel and forced to marry, the murder of her best friend Air 10 years before haunts her nightmares. She finds moments of freedom in a small-time private-eye business, which she hides in fear of her sadistic father-in-law.

Air's little brother disappears off his back porch and the Red Dogs are framed for it. With the help of a mysterious gentleman investigator hired by the Red Dogs to learn the truth, Jacqui pushes her abilities to their limits in hope of rescuing the child before the kidnapper disposes of him.

Different to what Title had made me envision

I enjoyed the audio rendition of this book, which I had been given an advanced copy of and had never wanted to read, purely because of the title. This I now regret, as I quickly became engrossed, by this futuristic tale of a world where crime families once again rule, and the general population is mere servants to those in power. However, it is difficult to leave your roots behind and although now Mrs Spadros, Jacqui had been a "gutter rag" , what was classed as the lowest in this society. She had been enforced into her marriage, but still wanted to help those that could not help themselves
Yes, an interesting yarn, with much intrigue and drama. I cannot wait to see what the next episode reveals.
