Customer Review

on 22 March 2011
I have despaired of finding an author to match Iain M Banks but Richard Morgan achieved this with his Altered Carbon series. With Market Forces, Morgan also matches Iain 'no-M' Banks with a superb work of fiction with a twist. This is really social science fiction that imagines a near future no different technologically, but follows a thought experiment taking current social, economic and political structures and processes to extremes. Our current credit crunch woes with complex derivatives are as nothing compared with the nightmare of 'conflict investment'. Stiff upper lip fiction readers may balk at the suspension of disbelief required to imagine financial executives road-rage duelling for contracts and partnerships on deserted motorways.
