Johnny Slaught his ragtag group of climate change refugees are just trying to survive in a world plunged into endless winter. But Johnny’s world is about to be rocked by the most ancient menace of all – human greed. The beast of winter is knocking at his door and has slicked back hair, a sheep-skin coat, and a pump action.
