The Second Angel

Philip Kerr: The Second Angel (USA 2000)

From the Publisher:
THE YEAR IS 2069, THE CENTENNIAL OF
THE APOLLO 11 MOON WALK.

Earth has been irrevocably altered by global climatic changes and a worldwide plague of P2 -- a slow-acting, insidious virus. The Moon, now populated by penal colonies and sex hotels, also protects mankind's most sought-after and vital commodity -- virus-free blood -- in the most impregnable high-security installation ever engineered.

The First National Blood Bank is the brainchild of security firm Terotech's chief designer, Dana Dallas. But after Dallas' P2-infected daughter is denied uncontaminated blood, he is considered a security risk -- and expendable. With his life on the line, and his family caught in the cross fire, Dallas swears revenge on the elitist system and his own creation. Enlisting an eclectic crew of rebels, he devises a daring plan to infiltrate the lunar fortress -- one that will jeopardize everyone involved, and hinges on a very strange and unforeseen ally.

In The Second Angel, acclaimed novelist Philip Kerr convincingly mixes prophecy and science in a dark, dystopian, high-velocity thriller that rockets toward its explosive conclusion.

The Second Angel

Philip Kerr: The Second Angel (USA 1999)

From the Publisher:
A dark, dystopian high-velocity thriller in the cult-classic tradition of Kerr's A Philosophical Investigation.
July 2069: centennial of the Apollo 11 moon walk. What would Buzz Aldrin see if he were here? On Earth, plagues have destroyed the major food supplies, climatic changes have brought constant winter to the once-industrialized West, and a new and virulent virus -- P2 -- has infected Earth's population, bringing radical change in economic, political, and social structures. P2 is curable -- but only with an infusion of uninfected blood. Indeed, blood has become the currency of choice: It is banked, speculated in, traded, hoarded, but only by those wealthy enough (or healthy enough) to have a clean, uninfected supply. And the moon? It is now home to sex hotels and penal colonies. Home, too, to the "federal reserve" of blood banks -- the most impregnable high-security installation in the world. It is the brainchild of one man -- and he has every reason to destroy it. Acting on the most human of motives -- revenge -- he will take on the impossible. Unbeknownst to him, he will have help from a very strange source.

Call it 2001 updated. Call it a chillingly convincing mix of prophecy and science. Call it Philip Kerr's best book yet. The Second Angel: 1999's prologue to 2069, a terrifying forecast of the future.
