Description

____________________

'A gripping read, a literary blockbuster with brains. Horribly compelling' The Observer

'Featuring an explosive twist-in-the-tail climax, this terrifying hybrid of Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and Zamyatin's We is a triumph' The Guardian

___________________

Gun violence, climate change and unemployment have ravaged the United States beyond recognition.

Amidst the wreckage, an online retail giant named Cloud reigns supreme. Cloud brands itself not just as an online storefront, but as a global saviour. Yet, beneath the sunny exterior, lurks something far more sinister.

Paxton never thought he'd be working Security for the company that ruined his life, much less that he'd be moving into one of their sprawling live-work facilities. But compared to what's left outside, perhaps Cloud isn't so bad. Better still, through his work he meets Zinnia, who fills him with hope for their shared future.

Except that Zinnia is not what she seems. And Paxton, with his all-access security credentials, might just be her meal ticket.

As Paxton and Zinnia's agendas place them on a collision course, they're about to learn just how far the Cloud will go to make the world a better place.

To beat the system, you have to be inside it.

"A gripping read, a literary blockbuster with brains" * Observer * "The Warehouse is an inventive, addictive, Crichton-esque, page-turning, near-future dystopian thriller about a corporation ruling over every aspect of our late-capitalism lives" * Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World * "Featuring an explosive twist-in-the-tail climax, this terrifying hybrid of Orwell's Nineteen-Eighty-Four and Zamyatin's We is a triumph" * Guardian * ""On the surface, The Warehouse is a thrilling story of corporate espionage at the highest level, but dig a little deeper, and you'll find a terrifying cautionary tale of the nightmare world we are making for ourselves-where our reliance upon e-commerce giants is turning them into malevolent entities more powerful than government."" * Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter * "A thriller of ideas, and its interplay of taut action and incisive cultural commentary gives it shades of Fahrenheit 451 and Jurassic Park ... When "The Warehouse" lives in this dissonance between good intentions and corporate desolation, it really shine" * USA Today *
