I know a number of reviewers praised the author for his storytelling abilities but I was not as impressed as a few of his stories seems to have missed their mark.
The novel starts off with the young man Riel escaping from a bleak agrarian future by taking a train to Montreal, which is presumbably one of the last cities on earth.

The details are not all that important because as soon as Riel arrives at the station, he instantly meets the unnamed but deadly female assassin.
Thankfully she is more interested in escaping the station and Riel escapes his encounter.
However, he is bewildered by the ongoing tension between various factions within the city and tries to avoid the violent outbreaks as best he can. He becomes acquainted with an aboriginal police cop and later, a fellow female traveller. The situation gets out of control when the order is given to retake the square and the military marches in.

Interpersed with Riel's story is the one with the female assassin who is hellbent on killing the president of Jouvex, Mr.
Jouvex is the conglomerate that owns the entire city because it manufactures a drug that can prolong the average human life span so individuals can live up to years. Nortion is trying to contain--namely, the drug is killing its hosts. It's not clear why the assassin is after Mr. Norton because it's clear in the leadup to yet another failed assassination attempt, she is not working with the rebels or anyone else for that matter. She seems to have a personal vendetta against him, which is clearly rattling Mr. These mercenaries track down her whereabouts and set out to eradicate her at all costs.
I won't recap all the scenes but every now, characters from either storyline will casually intersect with the other. It's only until the very end where the hostage situation has been resolved, Riel and Neve are reunited, and Mr. Norton is killed that the big reveals takes place--namely the female assassin's true identity.
She is Gana, daughter of former Jouvex's scientists who were working on a newer version of the life-extending drug. Her parents were killed by Mr. Ils vont devoir vivre ensemble. Il renoue avec Paoli, son amie, qui a longtemps attendu son retour, seule, loin de sa famille.
