Pronouncing Doom, by S. M. Stirling
We are getting toward the end of Dangerous Women--not quite there yet. Post-apocalyptic times are certainly dangerous, but the protagonist here is "dangerous" as duly constituted justice. Pronouncing Doom illustrates rough (but actually pretty clean) justice. This group of survivors has adopted Earth-centered worship and Scots clan justice, and metes it on a pretty clear psychopath. The lesson - trust your instincts. You can tell when an author writes a lot, and Stirling is prolific. Also polished. 2 stars, it's a decent read but very much done.
