Review quote

'A writer of bold imagination and verve' Lauren Beukes 'Savage, intimate and inexorable' Nick Harkaway 'Powerful and distinctive' Guardian 'Smythe's storytelling is pacey and addictive; he has a fiendish talent for springing surprises' The Times 'Fully formed, fundamentally affecting, forward-thinking fiction. The sort of story that reminds us why we read, and what we, the people, need' Tor.com
