The Sting of the Bee (Paperback)
Catastrophic global warming has melted the ice caps--John Barrous will stop at nothing to stake his claim on the rich, virgin continent of Antarctica.
After the murder of his wife, John escapes urban strife for the quiet life of farming. He and his fifteen-year-old daughter join in a United Nations PR event, but the Oklahoma-style land rush turns into a race against ruthless, armed competitors . . . and a corrupt politician determined to control this new land.
Misfits from around the world, willing to fight for a new life. Faces around him had a hungry look as they sized up the competition. They had waited a lifetime for this chance, and no one wanted to be too friendly with someone they might end up killing later in the day.
