Présentation de l'éditeur
The world trade war has resulted in victory for the East. The countries of the West are in decline with their economies ravaged and their people cowed. Poverty and anarchy are rife with the pandemic of A2 disposing of the weak and the unlucky. An economic apartheid separates the large underclass from the few professionals who serve the all-powerful globals, giving their loyalty and their lives - living a hot-house existence of relentless work pressure, productivity implants and continual monitoring.
Meanwhile the fight for international market dominance continues, with countries increasingly impotent before the globals, whose wealth and power is greater than many nations.
In the ageing UK factory of a Japanese automotive global a serious crime triggers the arrival of the corporate investigation team. The deadline for solving the case is tight, yet the team is soon caught in a web of violence, corporate politics and something even more sinister. All too quickly the lives of the investigators and perhaps the very existence of the company itself are under threat.
Biographie de l'auteur
I've been writing (seriously) for over twenty-five years - both business and fiction. In my fiction I like to stimulate and inform my readers at the same time. My aim is for a reader to finish one of my books, having enjoyed it, and for their mind to be infected - by some new thinking, I hasten to add! When I'm not writing I'm earning a living by consulting internationally on business innovation and strategy. I've worked with many different organisations including some major global organisations. I've always had an interest in technology and over the last two decades have been particularly interested in the development of IT. My inspiration for my fiction writing comes from many sources - my work experience and other authors including: George Orwell, Iain Banks, Philip Pullman, Philip K Dick, William Gibson, Aldous Huxley and Ian Rankin.
