Summary
"Lester Ferris, sergeant of the British Army, is a good man in need of a rest. He's spent a lot of his life being shot at, and Afghanistan was the last stop on his road to exhaustion. He has no family, he's nearly forty, burned out and about to be retired. The island of Mancreu is the ideal place for Lester to serve out his time: a backwater island in legal limbo, belching toxic clouds of waste, and facing imminent destruction by an international community afraid for their own safety. Although there is an illicit Black Fleet lurking in the bay, Lester's brief is to sit tight and turn a blind eye. So he makes his rounds, drinks tea, and befriends a brilliant, Internet-addled street kid with a comic-book fixation. But when Mancreu's fragile society erupts in violence, Lester must be more than just an observer: he must rediscover the man of action he once was, and find out what kind of hero the island -- and the boy -- will need."--Page 4 of cover
