It’s Called “A Cull’
Harriet Freiberger’s review of It’s Called ‘A Cull’ provides a good summary of what the novel is about:
When Stanford University history student Luke Kanter explores the cave closed since his father’s death a decade earlier, he finds a file containing a letter from his long-dead father that changes his life from that of a carefree student of history into becoming an active agent in what will become history. Within six months, upon reaching the age of 21, the ring that has been passed down through generations will be placed upon his finger. With it comes the decision-making leadership of an ancient, secret society, headquartered in Porto, Portugal. Its mission: to insure the survival of mankind. Its method: to be determined.
Two opposing factions within the society vie for the ring bearer’s nod. The Agris, based in Stockholm, Sweden believe that through agricultural and technological developments, food supplies and distribution can keep up with population growth. The Runcos, headquartered in Sydney, Australia believe that a periodic cull is required in order to keep food supplies and population growth in balance. An international struggle ensues, then intensifies even to the point of murder and threats to young Luke’s life.
Eerily pertinent to this 21st century’s health crisis and a deepening political morass, the possibility of a worldwide pandemic engages a worldwide cast of characters.
