They almost missed the train. They had always planned to arrive close to departure time, so that Amanda had to spend as little time as possible on her feet, but there was a flash mob on the Place de la Concorde and all the streets leading into it were blocked.

[Note: This is the third volume of an extraordinary science fiction series based in a fractured Europe. Having read the first two novels, I highly recommend the series. I'm looking forward to this novel.]
