The huge Manhattan Dome hovers high in the smog. Beneath it, the city lies deserted, its buildings haunted, hollow shells. Years ago it was closed by the government in response to insidious crime and pollution. Now it is open only 2 months out of the year as a sort of morbid recreational park, and its only residents are the poor and downtrodden. Many of those left behind have formed gangs who fight over turf and food and prey on those who venture the darkest streets. Now Ron Morgan, a teenage runaway from the suburbs, finds himself trapped inside the city when the dome is closed at the season's end, and his recreational journey has become a nightmarish struggle for survival.

    " This definitely feels like a throwaway by Bova, but if you want to really enjoy it, find the Harlan Ellison audiobook. I'm convinced that it's the only way to experience this story. "
