The Seventh Candidate by Howard Waldman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In an age of plummeting morals and urban chaos verging on civil war, businessman Edmond Lorz makes a precarious living by removing obscene graffiti from underground railway advertising hoardings. It's during a recruitment aptitude test for extra porn-purging staff that a terrorist bomb rips through Ideal Poster's grubby headquarters, leaving Lorz and one candidate - the seventh - fighting for life in hospital. Lorz recovers completely, but the strikingly handsome young job-seeker wakens from his coma a blank-faced, unspeaking automaton with total amnesia and a blind obsession with his new employer's clean-up campaign. Adopted by Lorz and his wildly unpredictable secretary, Dorothea - each driven by pity, love and stark fear - the mysterious Seventh Candidate wages a private and manic war on disorder in a subterranean maze of tunnels beneath a city gone mad. Howard Waldman's latest novel, set against a backdrop of social disintegration that's almost too close for comfort, swings from lunatic hilarity to heartrending tragedy . and often the reader may struggle to tell the difference in a story with more twists and turns than a subway map.
