New York City, 2025: Everything is changed. The city that never sleeps is now a land of death and decay. A rampant virus has taken over and the survivors have become carriers, quarantined from the rest of the world.Twist and Dodger grew up in the streets, the sewers and underground tunnels - their playground.

3.0 the Robin Hood team of stealing meds from the rich and giving to the poor!
I received a review copy of this book for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl. I could imagine The Artful being made into a black and white movie like a Frank Miller graphic novel.
