Corderro is a city on the brink of collapse. Since its violent inception at the hands of Spanish conquistadors countless generations have borne witness to a cyclical repetition of bloodshed and misfortune. Many of its inhabitants believe the city to be cursed, and refer to it simply as ‘The Melting Pot’ – a churning cauldron into which all are eventually consumed.

In present day its streets are in the grip of civil war. Crime is rife, government sponsored abductions are commonplace and revolutionary fervour has been awakened.

Against this backdrop a cast of smugglers and Samaritans, dictators and politicians, collude with and conspire against one another, each acutely aware that, in The Melting Pot, events always come back to haunt you.

    Just finished ‘The Melting Pot’ – best thing I’ve read in absolutely ages (apparently we’ve had it for years, so not sure why it took me so long to get to it). Really looking forward to your next one coming out. Any idea when? Helen says ‘Hi’ and hopes that all’s well! All the best, Ben.
