A super-smart speculative literary thriller which explores the nature of identity and fate, in a world set in the near future, where our sense of who we are is inextricably linked to the digital footprints we leave... how can we be imperfect human beings in a world defined by technology?...

"showy and cosmopolitan"

When a model is murdered in an apparent terrorist attack in New York, Yap’s detective, Christian Verger, has to provide extra protection for a fashion show in London the very next night. Verger makes an unlikely cop, credulous and self-obsessed, but then Yap is better at imagining high-tech toys than creating credible characters.
