by Claire North

From one of the most original new voices in modern fiction comes a startling vision of a world where nothing is so precious that it can’t be bought . . .

‘An extraordinary novel that stands with the best of dystopian fictionfrom Nineteen Eighty Four to The Chrysalids, with dashes of The Handmaid’s Tale’ Cory Doctorow

Theo Miller knows the value of human life – to the very last penny.

Working in the Criminal Audit Office, he assesses each crime that crosses his desk and makes sure the correct debt to society is paid in full.

But when his ex-lover is killed, it’s different. This is one death he can’t let become merely an entry on a balance sheet.

Because when the richest in the world are getting away with murder, sometimes the numbers just don’t add up.

From the award-winning Claire North comes an utterly gripping, page-turning and thought-provoking new novel which will resonate with readers around the world.

  1. Yeah… I requested this one and haven’t yet heard back – but I’m guessing I’ve been refused… I’ll have to get hold of this one once it has been published. I hope you enjoy it – I love her writing.


  2. “a startling vision of a world where nothing is so precious that it can’t be bought…” That bit just has me so intrigued as do the comparisons to 1984 and The Handmaid’s Tale. I think I’ll be adding this to my TBR as well. Thanks for the rec!
