Andrew Hunter Murray is a scriptwriter and fact-hunter for BBC2’s QI. He co-hosts the podcast No Such Thing As A Fish which has had 200 million downloads.  His debut novel is a stunningly original and gripping conspiracy set in 2059 when the world has stopped turning and is on the edge of catastrophe.  With a brilliant clever plot where the science is all too believable, this dark post-apocalyptic tale is a near-perfect alternate-future thriller.

Wonderful: boldly imagined and beautifully written – the best future-shock thriller for years – Lee Child

Gregory Norminton is a novelist and Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University
