Friday (no last name) is a genetically engineered woman who works as a courier for a secret organization in one of the various regional governmental units of what was once the United States. Chaos, bigotry, free and unfettered sex, rape, and other forms of violence are endemic, but strong and caring relationships somehow survive. Hillary Huber finds a voice for Friday that rings true. She’s a survivor who is relatively unemotional about events that occur, but, despite her detached manner, she feels deeply about other people. With a quick and steady pace Huber gives the impression that Friday is always moving forward. Her no-nonsense tone, even when the future looks bleak, keeps the focus on the story.
