A WORLD HALF IN DARKNESS. A SECRET SHE MUST BRING TO LIGHT.

2059. The world has stopped turning.

One half suffers an endless frozen night; the other, nothing but burning sun.

In an isolationist Britain, scientist Ellen Hopper receives a letter from a dying man. It contains a powerful and dangerous secret.

One that those in power will kill to conceal…

‘Wonderful: boldly imagined and beautifully written - the best future-shock thriller for years .’
LEE CHILD

A tantalizing, suspenseful odyssey of frustration, deceit, treachery, torture, hope, despair and ingenious sleuthing… Murray has so thoroughly thought through the ramifications of his conceit and conjured up such a dramatic plot and stellar cast of characters that he might have set a new standard for such tales.’
WASHINGTON POST

A stunningly original thriller set in the world of tomorrow that will make you think about what’s happening today.’
HARLAN COBEN

A taut, thrilling runaround.
GUARDIAN

‘I read this hungrily … Its intelligence and bravura characterisation will have you turning page after page. A fabulous achievement .’
STEPHEN FRY

‘A brilliant debut … Fans of Robert Harris will love it
DAILY EXPRESS

To say it’s gripping is an understatement - I cancelled all my weekend plans to finish it’
SARA PASCOE

‘In his fascinating debut, Murray has crafted something original … an interesting new twist on a post-apocalyptic tale.
KIRKUS

Downright impossible to stop reading. The science is believable, the near-future world feels as real as our own, the characters are lively, and the plot is suspenseful. A near-perfect alternate-future thriller.
