Claire North

-  

'AN EXTRAORDINARY NOVEL . . . stands with the best of dystopian fiction, from Nineteen Eighty Four to The Chrysalids, with dashes of The Handmaid's Tale' Cory Doctorow ***CLAIRE NORTH HAS BEEN SHORTLISTED FOR THE SUNDAY TIMES/PFD YOUNG WRITER OF THE YEAR AWARD*** From one of the most original new voices in modern fiction comes a startling vision of a world where nothing is so precious that it can't be bought . . . Theo Miller knows the value of human life - to the very last penny. Working in the Criminal Audit Office, he assesses each crime that crosses his desk and makes sure the correct debt to society is paid in full. But when his ex-lover is killed, it's different. This is one death he can't let become merely an entry on a balance sheet. Because when the richest in the world are getting away with murder, sometimes the numbers just don't add up. From the award-winning Claire North comes an electrifying and provocative new novel which will resonate with readers around the world. Praise for Claire North: 'Poignant and intensely gripping' Guardian 'Little short of a masterpiece' Independent 'Ambitious, immensely humane and full of philosophical panache' Sunday Times 'One of the fiction highlights of the decade' Judy Finnigan, Richard and Judy Book Club
