A crime novel about distorted love. A Western. A lyrical slice of the prairie, a frontier narrative. A noir novel about obsession and revenge, desire and predation. A look at one man’s grip on insanity and a story about female beauty and showmanship.
Surveillance and abductions, a novel about the age of digital publishing and what it means. A novel about physicality. When a publisher believes we are being turned into code he finds out he may not be wrong. Then he is arrested for a terrorist plot against London.
