Two decades after the great economic collapse the world's cities have ceased to exist and life continues only in scattered communities. Back in '43, Jake was a rich, young futures broker, immersed in the 'datascape' of the world's financial markets. He saw what was coming - and who was behind it. Forewarned, he was one of the few to escape the fall. For twenty two years, Jake Reed has lived in fear of the future and finally it is coming across the plain towards him. Chinese airships are in the skies and a strange, glacial structure has begun to dominate the horizon. Under the rule of the mighty Tsao Ch'un, a resurgent China is seeking to abolish the past and bring about world peace through rigidly enforced order. But a civil war looms, and Jake will find himself at the heart of the struggle for the future.

About David Wingrove

Novelist and Hugo Award-winning critic, David Wingrove has been writing seriously since he was a teenager and now has twenty-six novels to his credit, along with several volumes of non-fiction. His work has often been described as 'epic' and with some justification: his first published series CHUNG KUO is in excess of two-million words and took almost a decade to conceive, research and plot. His most recent book, The Master of Time, part of the The Roads to Moscow series, was published by Penguin Random House imprint Del Rey in April 2017.
