When a chunk of London disappears, Sam Grainger is intrigued (what scientist wouldn't be?) but he doesn't really think it has anything to do with him. He's more preoccupied with the phone call that's just turned his life upside down - the call that apparently came from his dead wife. But these two strange incidents aren't as unrelated as they originally appear, and Sam finds himself getting sucked in to stranger and stranger circumstances.
I've loved Steven Pemberton's earlier work (in the fantasy genre) so I was looking forwards to reading this book, and I really did enjoy it a lot. It's full of interesting ideas about reality, physics, and AI, but more important (to me) the characters are engaging and the action keeps up a good pace. I'm not sure from the ending whether this will turn into a series: there's more interesting stuff guaranteed to happen in this world, but I think I'd be equally satisfied if that was left off-screen for my imagination to fill in.
