In a town distanced from reality, Abyrne stands all on it's own. Controlled wholly by Magnus, the meat baron, and the religious sect who watch over the town. Meat is a commodity, if people don't eat it they starve, and if they starve, they become meat themselves.

Richard Shanti has a problem. He works at the meat processing plant but doesn't eat meat himself. He finds it immoral and against his own beliefs. As a consequence, his family are starving and he is becoming very unhealthy himself. Until he meets John Collins, who has the power to change the entire town's mindset on meat.

There is a lot of very disturbing scenes in this book and it may turn you vegetarian with how close to reality it is, but it is an excellent read and very hard to put down.
