When the Antichrist comes to town, bad things can happen...
In a bustling metropolis verging on the edge of chaos, all Peter Gold wants is the chance for a simple life with his wife and young daughter in the safety of their apartment. When two strangers appear at the door one evening however, his world is thrown into turmoil when a sudden act of sickening violence destroys everything he has ever loved.
Hunted by the police and desperate to find out why his life was destroyed, his quest takes him into the dark heart of the city streets where pieces of the blood soaked puzzle begin to lead him to a confrontation beyond anything he could have imagined, and will leave him no choice but to discover the price he’s willing to pay for justice.
Drawn into this labyrinth is Special Agent Anna Sloan, whose role in front line government sanctioned religion control is about to become even more dangerous when it’s announced the city will be hosting a special visit from the First Lady of Mars. She’s already had a gutful of the crime and terror, is sick of watching society tear itself apart, but even with all her training and experience nothing will prepare her for the devastation that will come when the city turns red.
Will Peter’s hunt for vengeance bring the answers he’s looking for?
Can Anna survive what could be the darkest days of her life?
And what secrets does the First Lady of Mars hold for the people of Earth?
See The City Red is a no holds barred dystopian horror thriller that is as relentless as it is thought provoking, and certainly not for the faint of heart.

Its underlying tangled premise tangling consistently challenges and you find yourself at times reluctantly seeing both sides.
