Product description

One hundred and fifty years from now, in a world where Africa is the dominant technological and economic power, and where crime, war, disease and poverty have been banished to history, Geoffrey Akinya wants only one thing: to be left in peace, so that he can continue his studies into the elephants of the Amboseli basin. But Geoffrey's family, the vast Akinya business empire, has other plans. After the death of Eunice, Geoffrey's grandmother, erstwhile space explorer and entrepreneur, something awkward has come to light on the Moon, and Geoffrey is tasked - well, blackmailed, really - to go up there and make sure the family's name stays suitably unblemished. But little does Geoffrey realise - or anyone else in the family, for that matter - what he's about to unravel. Eunice's ashes have already have been scattered in sight of Kilimanjaro. But the secrets she died with are about to come back out into the open, and they could change everything. Or shatter this near-utopia into shards ...

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
