Who can win in a war of all against all?

The war on terror exploded, literally, the day Sarajevo was destroyed by a homemade nuclear device. The leading democracies transformed into total surveillance states, and the developing world has drowned under a wave of genocides. The mysterious American John Paul seems to be behind the collapse of the world system, and it’s up to intelligence agent Clavis Shepherd to track John Paul across the wreckage of civilizations, and to find the true heart of darkness—a genocidal organ.

The late Project Itoh's <i>Genocidal Organ</i> manages to be both a novel of ideas and a gripping look at an all too plausible near-future world that is slowly and deliberately being driven insane. Special Forces operative Clavis Sheperd's hunt for the mysterious John Paul is intercut with flashbacks and philosophical digressions that flesh out both Sheperd and the world he lives in, always coming back to the central question of the book: why is the world the way it is? Noteworthy also for its outsider's view of the United States. While not flawless (it was Itoh's first novel), its virtues far outweigh its minor faults. Puts most of what passes for SF these days in the shade.
