We have seen the sort of world depicted in Claudia Casper's new novel before: a near-future dystopia, wracked in the wake of a global war and an environmental cataclysm, with governments driven to extreme measures to protect the lives of their citizens. The great strength of Casper's work, though, is that it doesn't focus on the larger scale, allowing the political and ecological landscape to form a backdrop for the deeply immersive, character-based storytelling we have come to expect from the Vancouver writer.
