In a city that could well be New York, a series of identical women are found dead in suspicious circumstances. Magazine photographer Johnny Farthing, who is reporting on the suspected murders, is chilled to discover that his fiancee looks identical to the victims too - and then she disappears. As his investigations spiral beyond his control, he finds himself at the heart of a sinister plot that uses cloning to revive the Nazi vision of a world-powerful master race...
Part detective noir, part dystopic thriller, Plan for Chaos reveals the legendary science fiction novelist grappling with some of his most urgent and personal themes.

About John Wyndham

John Wyndham (1903-69) is the legendary author of the sci-fi classics The Day of the Triffids, The Chrysalids, The Midwich Cuckoos, The Kraken Wakes, Trouble with Lichen and Chocky. When Triffids was published in 1951 he was widely hailed as HG Wells's only and true successor. In pioneering a new type of novel he called 'logical fantasy', he is credited with single-handedly reviving British interest in science fiction after the Second World War.
