Mysteries and murder abound in the sequel to the Philip
K. Dick Awardâ€“winning Bannerless
A century after environmental and economic collapse, the
people of the Coast Road have rebuilt their own sort of
civilization, striving not to make the mistakes their
ancestors did. They strictly ration and manage resources,
including the ability to have children. Enid of Haven is an
investigator, who with her new partner, Teeg, is called on
to mediate a dispute over an old building in a far-flung
settlement at the edge of Coast Road territory. The
investigatorsâ€™ decision seems straightforward â€” and then the
body of a young woman turns up in the nearby marshland.
Almost more shocking than that, sheâ€™s not from the Coast
Road, but from one of the outsider camps belonging to the
nomads and wild folk who live outside the Coast Road
communities. Now one of them is dead, and Enid wants to find
out who killed her, even as Teeg argues that the murder
isnâ€™t their problem. In a dystopian future of isolated
communities, can our moral sense survive the worst hard times?
