Oil reserves depleted. Society collapsed.
A few places cling to modern technology. For everywhere else, there are the Tinkers.
In southern Ontario, Novo Gaia uses sustainable energy to support its citizens in comfort. From there, Novo Gaia sends Doctors of Applied General Technology, tinkers, into the Dark Lands to install everything from solar stills to televisions-and make a profit.
Brad Cooper is a tinker on his route in Guelph when he finds himself at the epicentre of a plague outbreak. Stranded without support in a tenuously-held quarantine zone, he must use his limited medical training in a desperate search for a treatment against an insidious relic from an age of excess.
Meanwhile, fuelled by panic, other townspeople caught within the quarantine zone conspire to sabotage relief efforts. Distrusted by the people he's trying to help, hampered by political rivals, under-supplied, over-worked, and with his own risk of infection increasing, Brad seems to be fighting a losing battle as the casualties mount...

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
It wasn't bad or anything it was just that I do not have much knowledge about much of Stephen's story was about (which was mostly medical stuff and technology). Other than that it was pretty good, characters didn't always seem like they where just different bodies with the same brain, though a lot of the background characters (and what I mean by that is you never saw the story from their point of view) seemed to easily persuaded by anything they hear. WARNING: This book contains material better suited for the ages 17 and up.
I'm obvious bias but what I can say from the verbal feedback I've receaved is that people who have no reason to lie to me say they really enjoyed it.
