His story is told in whispers across the continent. As Scythe Anastasia, Citra gleans with compassion and openly challenges the ideals of the “new order.” But when her life is threatened and her methods questioned, it becomes clear that not everyone is open to the change. Old foes and new enemies converge, and as corruption within the Scythedom spreads, Rowan and Citra begin to lose hope. Will the Thunderhead intervene? Or will it simply watch as this perfect world begins to unravel?

Since its opening in 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge has become an icon for the beauty and prosperity of the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as a symbol of engineering achievement. Constructing the bridge posed political and financial challenges that were at least as difficult as those faced by the project's builders. To meet these challenges, northern California boosters created a new kind of agency: an autonomous, self-financing special district. The Golden Gate Bridge and Highway District developed into a powerful organization that shaped the politics and government of the Bay Area as much as the bridge shaped its physical development. From the moment of the bridge district's incorporation in 1928, its managers pursued their own agenda. They used all the resources at their disposal to preserve their control over the bridge, cultivating political allies, influencing regional policy, and developing an ambitious public relations program. Undaunted by charges of mismanagement and persistent efforts to turn the bridge (as well as its lucrative tolls) over to the state, the bridge district expanded into mass transportation, taking on ferry and bus operations to ensure its survival to this day. Drawing on previously unavailable archives, Paying the Toll gives us an inside view of the world of high-stakes development, cronyism, and bureaucratic power politics that have surrounded the Golden Gate Bridge since its inception.

The year is 1919. The Great War is over and a million soldiers have been released into a recession-wracked economy that cannot possibly absorb them. Russia has fallen to the communists, and the IWW threatens the same in America. Labor violence rips the nation, shutting down Seattle for five days and mighty US Steel for three months. To defend itself against the Bolshevik threat, the Railroad turns to one of its own. Bribery releases former bookkeeper Edwin McIntyre from the lunatic asylum where he was committed for murder. An obsession with neatness and order leaves McIntyre outwardly harmless. If only he can control the terrible compulsions that make him a walking time bomb, he might lead a normal life. But he is an instrument of corporate terror. Robbery, murder and the Red menace send him to a Colorado hell-town where worse men than he answer only to the law of the gun. There he must come to terms with who and what he has become.
