The Walled City By Ryan Graudin. That's how many days I've been trapped. That's how many days I have left to find a way out. DAI, trying to escape a haunting past, traffics drugs for the most ruthless kingpin in the Walled in order to find the key to his freedom, he needs help from someone with the power to be invisible.

  The Walled City of Hak Nam is based on Kowloon Walled City, an old fort in Hong Kong that was essentially left to its own devices and became a sort of city within a city, a place where the usual rules don’t apply, and where drugs, murder, prostitution, the whole nine yards were run often without any interference from outside forces, because. Though demolished 20 years ago, fascination in Kowloon Walled City just continues to grow, fired in part by the many urban legends that forever swirl around this extraordinary community. Designed and edited by Greg Girard and Ian Lambot – the team behind City of Darkness: Life in Kowloon Walled City – City of Darkness Revisited [ ].
