1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Meghan Thompson on 13 July 2009
From the moment I opened the cover, I was hooked by Lindsey Mackie's dystopian descriptions of a post-apocalyptic Britain and the emotions that define us as human beings, no matter how our society is shaped.

The setting is Britain, circa 2050. A series of terrorist attacks has caused massive environmental and biological degradation that has forced the restructuring of society for the purpose of maximizing resources and ensuring social order. Mackie's vision is all-too-easy to imagine and therefore creates a grip on the reader that begins on page one and leaves one wishing for more by the novel's end.

The plot follows Rachel, an Angelina Jolie-like law-enforcement officer, as she investigates a series of murders that leads her to uncover an unimaginable plot against the citizens of the UK.

Infused into this mystery/thriller is a touching and emotional look at the strained relations between husband and wife and the impossible-to-extinguish deep maternal bond a mother has with her child.

The thrilling climax leaves the reader wishing there was a sequel to explain in even more detail what happens next!

All in all, this is a fantastic read with a powerful message about our future.

This is a science fiction book which actually makes you think about how we live now. A fascinating and thought-provoking novel. Very enjoyable and recommended. The CD is a nice addition and well worth a listen.
