Waste Tide

'Waste girl' Mimi becomes infected with a virus, becoming the host for an omniscient consciousness, hell-bent on righting wrongs - and igniting a class war and more. 'An accomplished eco-techno-thriller with heart and soul' DAVID MITCHELL. Mimi is a 'waste girl', a member of the lowest caste on Silicon Isle. Located off China's southeastern coast, Silicon Isle is the global capital for electronic waste recycling, where thousands of people like Mimi toil day and night, hoping that one day they too will get to enjoy the wealth they've created for their employers, the three scrap families who have ruled the isle for generations. Scott Brandle has come to Silicon Isle representing TerraGreen Recycling, an American corporation that stands to earn ungodly sums if they can reach a deal to modernize the island's recycling process. Chen Kaizong , a Chinese American, travels to Silicon Isle as Scott's interpreter. He hopes to find his heritage, but finds only more questions. The home he longs for may not exist. These forces collide when a ship bearing a dangerous cargo arrives at Silicon Isle and unleashes a terrible, futuristic virus. Against the backdrop of a gritty near-future Chinese landscape, in a world of body modifications and virtual reality, a war erupts – between the rich and the poor; between ancient traditions and modern ambition; between humanity's past and its future. ' Waste Tide is a work of spoiled and toxic beauty ... It's more than a timely eco-thriller; it's a dark mirror held up to our selves' SIMON INGS.
