Description

The odds of surviving quantum teleportation to the Exodus Universe are, more or less, fifty/fifty. The only ones crazy enough to try it are the desperate, the insane and those sentenced to death for their crimes. Belladonna is home to the survivors and, in a planet run by criminals and desperados, death is commonplace. But a particularly horrific (and improbable) killing attracts the Galactic Police force, and a cyborg cop is sent to investigate.

Version 43 has been here before, and has old scores to settle. The cop was human once, but is now more programme than man. And he intends to clean up this planet, permanently, whatever the cost.

Review quote

FT SFX * `What sets the novel apart, other than its bristling imaginative brio, is the underlying humour ... Playful prose and relentless, explosive action make for an exceptional piece of high-adventure SF' * Palmer's lip-smackingly over the top exploration of crime and retribution will delight' Guardian * `Entertaining far-future thriller ... packed to bursting with invention and jaw-dropping ultraviolence' *
