A great new author for me--I can't wait to go back now and read Martin Walker's first mysteries! A former Editor for UPI and currently director of a think tank, Oxford alum Walker splits his time between Washington, DC, and the Dordogne region. His books take place in the villages of the Dordogne and take advantage of the loveliness of the Aquitaine area of France.
Ship Breaker is a bleak look at a dystopian future. Almost all the oil in the world has been consumed and global warming has drowned most sea-coast cities and spawns “city-killer” hurricanes. Huge corporations run the world and Chinese “red cash” is the most desirable currency. The world has also tinkered with genetic manipulation and much of the fighting is done by “half men”, a combination of men, tigers and dogs.
