"I've got all the feelings. And feelings are trouble."
Dez is different from the other fleshers struggling to survive in the outskirts of Newport. She's a living quantum computer, the missing link between human and artificial intelligence. If Newport City OpSec knew about her abilities, she'd be dead meat. And when she accidentally kills a cop during a routine raid, everything begins to unravel.
From award winning writers Alison Croggon and Daniel Keene comes a story of resistance, rebellion and love in a future not so far from our own.
