Product description


"Ward weaves together taut poetic prose, intrigue, compelling characters and an inescapable plot in this futuristic post-pandemic crime-thriller of a new world order. The dogged persistence of Amir Duran-an offbeat and irascible detective-untangles a string of murders by a psychopath killer that all point to a greater conspiracy to topple the new world government already fraying at the seams." John Fitzsimmons, author of Raccoon ******** "An author who obviously knows his stuff. I was immediately engaged." Mar Preston, author of A Very Private High School ******** "A smart, suspenseful ride that draws from the tradition of literary mysteries to create something entirely original. It's a delicious stew of intrigue, depravity, and humour. With vivid, urgent prose, Ward imagines a frightening world that feels all too plausible in these uncertain times." Meg Little Reilly, author of We Are Unprepared ******** "Ward has given us a richly textured mystery that invites us to explore the blurred lines between faith and politics." Deval Patrick, former Governor of Massachusetts and author of A Reason to Believe: Lessons from an Improbable Life

Product Description

Detective Amir Omar Duran was just a boy when the British invaded his beloved Granada. Now—after two decades of colonial rule—the ancient city of winding alleys and iconic architecture is a smoldering caldron of corruption, poverty and strife.

On the eve of a political summit between the city’s wrangling factions, Amir is dispatched to Granada’s torrid outskirts to investigate the unusual death of an African migrant. When the investigation puts Amir at odds with some of Granada’s most powerful men, Agent Brit Tillman is assigned by The British Crown to keep a watchful eye.

As more shocking evidence is unearthed, Amir and Brit must form an alliance to foil a dark conspiracy and uncover the man behind it. And in a city full of unsavory businessmen, desperate refugees, and hard-boiled spies, almost everyone is a suspect.
