Tender is the Flesh Paperback / softback
It all happened so quickly. First, animals became infected with the virus and their meat became poisonous.
Then governments initiated the Transition. Now, 'special meat' - human meat - is legal. Marcos is in the business of slaughtering humans - only no one calls them that.
He works with numbers, consignments, processing. One day, he's given a gift to seal a deal: a specimen of the finest quality.
He leaves her in his barn, tied up, a problem to be disposed of later. But she haunts Marcos. Her trembling body, and watchful gaze, seem to understand. And soon, he becomes tortured by what has been lost - and what might still be saved.
