Abstract:

"Salisbury Forth is a courier of bootleg goods in the alleyways of inner Melbourne, a city of fuel rationing, rolling power outages and curfews. Its a stressful life, post-pandemic. A vaccine that was dispensed Australia-wide has messed with human endocrinology and left people scrambling for fertility cures like adulterers for clothes. This would be fine for the hormone business, except the Nation First party is in government and has banned all remedies ... except prayer. Now the prayer groups are everywhere, gathering under streetlights at dusk and in silent vigil outside the homes of those deemed socially transgressive -- Sal being one. But this bike courier is in love and with a well-paying job, so life is not all bad; until someone starts trading suss hormones on Sals patch. Not only that, the stuff is stamped with the bosss Quality Assured logo. Sal needs to find whoever is trying to destroy the business before it all goes belly up ..."--Back cover.
