    What do you buy and sell when the global markets reach saturation point? The markets themselves. Thirty years from now the big players in global capitalism have moved on from commodities. The big money is in conflict investment. The corporations keep a careful watch on the wars of liberation and revolution that burn constantly around the world. They guage who the winners will be and sell them arms, intelligence, and power. In return for a slice of the action when the war is won.

    Overall

    A departure for the author in some ways, this gritty tale of "what if" reads like Cyberpunk written by Ayn Rand.

    The world is run by powerful corporations who foster local wars to create market places for military hardware and take portions of GNP in payment. The corporations believe in Social Darwinism to the Nth degree. In order to have the best and brightest, toughest and cruelest working for the company, they have instituted road rage challenges on the way to work.

    The protaganist is an up and comer in this world of the company who has a good car, good driving instincts and a good sense of how to foster a profitable revolution. Unfortunately, he also has a lingering sense of morality.

    As always with Morgan, the characters in the book are not all good or all bad. You will however, root for the protaganist anyway.

    FInally, I found the reading very good as well.
