...... where things have gone to hell and the rich now collect DNA instead of art to make clones for their own use. The story centers on Simms a gene hunter a shady character with a number of brain implants to help him get around the law.

Fantastic read, the book paints the picture of a future obsessed with genetic lineage and manages to feel fantastical and plausible at the same time.

Simms is a dark central character that very much fits his film-noire world of underground gene acquisition, technical wizardry and violence.

The story really sets the scene for the next in the series which I'll definitely be watching out for!

A thoroughly entertaining first part which I just had to read in one sitting!

Of note is Simms, the main protagonist and antihero. I'm looking forward to seeing where he is taken next. The setting has some interesting ideas which believably predict one possible future for us all...

A thumbs up from me... recommended.

I read this book after finding the excellent 'The age of Aquarius' by
A W Findlay. While both books have a great sense of atmosphere and
place - a vaguely recognisable world, displaced into a dystopia by the
extrapolation of a particular events leading to a grim world where you
don't know if there will be a happy ending or not...Either way it led
me to the last page (i wont spoil it on either) pretty quickly...
