This book offers a cross-national perspective on contemporary urban renewal in relation to social rental housing. There are places in America where the only reason for living is the hope of escape.

The man known only as Cross and his multi-skilled team of urban mercenaries are back, this time invading one of Chicago's least desirable neighborhoods in a land-grab that has the entire underworld puzzled.
