"I've got all the feelings. And feelings are trouble."


Dez is different from the other fleshers struggling to survive in the outskirts of Newport. She's a living quantum computer, the missing link between human and artificial intelligence.


If Newport City OpSec knew about her abilities, she'd be dead meat. And when she accidentally kills a cop during a routine raid, everything begins to unravel.


From award winning writers Alison Croggon and Daniel Keene comes a story of resistance, rebellion and love in a future not so far from our own.


"The coolest science fiction I've read in years - if cyberpunk dystopian SF is your jam, I highly recommend this amazing book." - Ellie Marney


"A vividly imagined post-collapse story, anchored by a sharp understanding of the ways imperfect people confront an oppressive government." - Kate Elliott


"A book that draws readers through an action-packed, multi-layered narrative and will leave them with the desire to learn more about the complex and unusual characters." - Books+Publishing
