Publisher's Synopsis


'Fabulous… Present-day science fiction that feels like the best sort of spy novel' NEIL GAIMAN


A mysterious event
An all-American diner appears overnight in a remote British field. More and more objects materialise: toys, fairground rides, pets and other treasured mementos of the past.

A weapon like no other
The deaths quickly follow. A devastating weapon - Prophet - is bringing these memories to life, then stifling innocent people with their own joy. But nobody knows who created it, or why.

A fight for the future
Sunil Rao and Adam Rubenstein are tasked with investigating this strange new reality. After a troubled past together, they are drawn closer than ever to defend what they both hold most dear…
