Review by Eyejaybee
Morgan came so close to pulling this off, but fell at the final hurdle.Set in the 2050s this book tells of the rise of globalisation to such an extent that individual companies pout in rival bids to control politically or militarily sensitive areas in the world. The senior executives of these companies gain advancement by duelling with their colleagues, usually through the medium of car-borne dogfights.However, the characterisation was very weak - in fact, there wasn't one character for whom I felt any empathy - and stretched credibility beyond breaking point.
