    Back cover copy
    Earth, the 22nd century. The Mechanism knows everything. It knows where you are. It knows what you are thinking, what you are feeling. There is no crime. You are safe. But in a Utopia like this keeping a secret can be a deadly business. In Alastair Reynolds' superb new novel the death of an African family's Matriarch throws the reader into a wild new world, a world where global warming has changed everything, where everything is known. A world where one last secret could change Mankind's future. It is at once a thrilling adventure and a vivid dream of a world on the cusp of a new era. 'A galaxy-sized imagination allied to a real story-telling ability' Bernard Cornwell 'The most exciting space opera writer working today' Locus 'One of SF's best and most important novelists' SFX
