Summary

"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

    There's power in stories. This is a story of power. 
     
    Dead bodies aren't unusual in the alleyways of Fenest, capital of the Union of Realms. Especially not in an election year, when the streets swell with crowds from near and far. Muggings, brawls gone bad, debts collected – Detective Cora Gorderheim has seen it all. Until she finds a Wayward man with his mouth sewn shut. 
     
    His body has been arranged precisely by the killer and left conspicuously, waiting to be found. Cora fears this is not only a murder, but a message. 
     
    As she digs into the dead man's past, she finds herself drawn into the most dangerous event in the Union: the election. In a world where stories win votes, someone has gone to a lot of trouble to silence this man. Who has stopped his story being told?
