The iconic visionary returns with his first new novel since
the New York Times bestseller Spook Country.
Whatever you do, because you are an artist, will bring you
to the next thing of your own...
When she sang for The Curfew, Hollis Henry's face was known
worldwide. She still runs into people who remember the
poster. Unfortunately, in the post-crash economy, cult
memorabilia doesn't pay the rent, and right now she's a
journalist in need of a job. The last person she wants to
work for is Hubertus Bigend, twisted genius of global
marketing; but there's no way to tell an entity like Bigend
that you want nothing more to do with him. That simply
brings you more firmly to his attention.
Milgrim is clean, drug-free for the first time in a decade.
It took eight months in a clinic in Basel. Fifteen complete
changes of his blood. Bigend paid for all that. Milgrim's
idiomatic Russian is superb, and he notices things.
Meanwhile no one notices Milgrim. That makes him worth every
penny, though it cost Bigend more than his cartel-grade
The culture of the military has trickled down to the street-
Bigend knows that, and he'll find a way to take a cut. What
surprises him though is that someone else seems to be on top
of that situation in a way that Bigend associates only with
himself. Bigend loves staring into the abyss of the global
market; he's just not used to it staring back.
