The award-winning author of the Revelation Space trilogy continues to forge the future of science fiction in this awe-inspiring new novel.
From the Publisher:
On an Earth of the far future, a planet left uninhabitable by the Nanocaust technological catastrophe, archaeologist Verity Auger is brought in to examine a wormhole leading to a mid-twentieth-century Earth, on which exists a deadly device capable of destroying both the past and future alike. Reprint.
Annotation:
Noir blends with hard SF space opera in this standalone novel. A technological disaster has rendered 24th-century Earth incapable of supporting human life. The survivors are split into two warring factions, the Threshers and the Slashers. The key to ending the conflict may lie in the Threshers' new discovery: the location of a wormhole that leads to an alternate version of 1959 Paris, where perennially out-of-work musician/private detective Wendell Floyd investigates a young woman's suspicious fatal fall from a fifth-story balcony.
