Synopsis

The new novel from the Women's Prize-winning, bestselling author of The Power, The Future is a white-knuckle tour de force and dazzling exploration of the world we have made and where we are going. The Future - as the richest people on the planet have discovered - is where the money is. The Future is a few billionaires leading the world to destruction while safeguarding their own survival with secret lavish bunkers. The Future is private weather, technological prophecy and highly deniable weapons. The Future is a handful of friends - the daughter of a cult leader, a non-binary hacker, an ousted Silicon Valley visionary, the concerned wife of a dangerous CEO and an internet-famous survivalist - hatching a daring plan. It could be the greatest heist ever. Or the cataclysmic end of civilisation. The Future is what you see if you don't look behind you. The Future is the only reason to do anything, the only object of desire. The Future is here.
