Synopsis

'As ever, MacLeod's depiction of the near future is achieved through solid characterisation and brilliant detail. His forte is the depiction of how belief systems can corrupt, and The Night Sessions is a stunning indictment of fundamentalism of all kinds.' - The Guardian'A twisting conspiracy tale shot through with MacLeod's gloriously mordant sense for the absurd.' - BBC FOCUSA priest is dead. Picking through the rubble of the demolished Edinburgh tenement, Detective Inspector Adam Ferguson discovers that the explosion wasn't an accident. When a bishop is assassinated soon afterwards, it becomes clear that a targeted campaign of killings is underway. No one has seen anything like this since the Faith Wars. In this enlightened age there's no religious persecution, but believers are a marginal and mistrusted minority. And now someone is killing them. But who? And - perhaps more importantly - why? The more his team learns, the more the suspicion grows that they may have stumbled upon a conspiracy way outside their remit. Nobody believes them, but if Ferguson and his people fail, there will be many more killings - and disaster on a literally biblical scale . . .A stunning new SF thriller from the critically acclaimed author of The Execution ChannelBooks by Ken MacLeod:Fall Revolution The Star Fraction The Stone Canal The Cassini Division The Sky RoadEngines of Light Cosmonaut Keep Dark Light Engine CityCorporation Wars Trilogy Dissidence Insurgence EmergenceNovels The Human Front Newton's Wake Learning the World The Execution Channel The Restoration Game Intrusion Descent
