Work Description

Set in a post climate collapse future, complete with underwater cities, super capitalists and gene hacked slave workers,
this is the story of a boy and his crew working in shipbreaking - recycling metal, oil and food from shipwrecks.

One day he gets a chance to "get lucky" - a chance to leave the stink of oil and poverty behind, if he s both lucky AND smart.

An amazing thriller, an easy to read adventure novel, this is essentially a meditation on smartness, values, luck, fate and love.
