Synopsis

From the acclaimed author of The Gone-Away World - an adventure story, a war story, and a love story, all wound into one brilliant narrative that runs like clockwork.



Shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Science Fiction Literature.



Joe Spork, son of the infamous criminal Mathew `Tommy Gun' Spork just wants a quiet life, repairing clockwork in a wet, unknown bit of London.



Edie Banister, former superspy, lives quietly and wishes she didn't. She's nearly ninety and the things she fought to save don't seem to exist anymore. She's beginning to wonder if they ever did.



When Joe is asked to fix one particularly unusual device, his life is suddenly upended. The client? Unknown. The device? A 1950s doomsday machine. Having triggered it, Joe now faces the wrath of both the government and a diabolical South Asian dictator, Edie's old arch-nemesis. Joe's once-quiet world is now populated with mad monks, psychopathic serial killers, scientific geniuses and threats to the future of conscious life in the universe. The only way he can survive, is to muster the courage to fight, help Edie complete a mission she gave up years ago, and pick up his father's old gun...

Nick Harkaway is the author of The Gone-Away World and Angelmaker, and of an even better and more exciting novel whose name will probably end up being Tigerman, or possibly Man, Island, Boy. Contrary to what you may have heard, the title really is the hard part. When he's not writing, he spends his time being the husband of a brilliant lawyer and the dad of two small children who are secretly bent on world domination. He likes Italian red wine and lives in a bit of London where the taxis still have a horse at the pointy end.

A great book, and hard to classify. A steampunky, gangster, spy thriller that rolls along at a breakneck pace and barely puts a foot wrong. My only slight criticism is that the ending seemed slightly rushed to me, although perhaps this just means I need to re-read it.

This is a masterful genre-blurring work. I was gripped throughout and the plot is exciting with no overselling. This is the kind of bold-faced thriller that requires a degree of brazen authorship and it’s a joy to read one so well executed.
