I love the Fallen World universe! Call Me Mr. Smith is book seven, in the series that is written by a very talented group of authors who lend their imaginations to different story arcs. All that I’ve read, thus far, have Mr. Smith in them somewhere and often he is the main character. We get bits and pieces of his former life, which plays a large part of who he is at present. I would love to share more but, it might spoil the great fun of reading yourself. This is a stand-alone novel but, be kind to yourself and begin with the first book. Please note that there is violence aplenty.
In this book, you see the world from the eyes of a Teledyne Specialist. Mr. Smith must look outside the box and scrape every resource he can together to stem the tide of anarchy flowing through the streets of New Toronto!

Mr. Smith is a survivor with certain specialized skills. A former professor but also a corporation assassin. Both skill sets prove useful in the Fallen World. Mr. Smith is also slow and methodical in his problem solving approach, which is how much of this book is written. Content in his underground bunker that he escaped to and spent years in isolation doesn't make for a man who makes friends easily, especially when most of his 'friends' want him dead. But along the way Mr. Smith becomes invested in the new Fallen World and that is what this book is about. A good story, like I said, it tends to be slow and plodding without many surprises along the way; but Mr. Smith is a man that gets the job done and makes friends where he finds them. A good continuation in the Fallen World series.
Called back from isolation specialist Mr Smith has to help rebuild a city. Unfortunately the executives he has to work with are only interested in hording power and may have other plans. Complex loyalties plague everyone and the imprint technology appears to have serious limitations. Not helped by the ghosts of the past's corprut wars. A well told story with believable characters. I'm a bit surprised that after 20 years certain perishables like fuel are still viable. Considering it's set 60 years in the future or so advances may have handwaved this problem away. I would like to find out what's up next for Mr Smith.
