You won’t know your friends from your enemies… until the ice cracks
The year is 2068. In Eldísvík city state, on the edge of the Arctic Circle, a police ‘decoy’ agent, shadowed by her trained pack of genetically altered foxes, contravenes orders and slaughters members of a criminal cartel.
Inspector Nero Cavallo must hunt this unidentified decoy down before the fragile balance between the legitimate and criminal worlds erupts into chaos.
Meanwhile, Bruno Mastriano, a young man hiding his telepathic powers, struggles to escape a gang of militants intent on exploiting his gift for themselves.
When a beautiful trainee joins Nero’s homicide team, things begin to unravel.
A gripping read that will appeal to fans of Philip K Dick, J.G. Ballard and the masterful Raymond Chandler.

” Well, what a humdinger of a book this turned out to be…
I’m well and truly hooked. It’s rare that I reach the end of a book shouting “Oh no” as I realise it’s finished. I look forward to my next visit to Eldísvík .” LoveReading review
“It was a solid and entertaining crime thriller with some futuristic sci-fi elements as a real point of difference from most crime novels I have read. For this reason, I would recommend it to both crime and science fiction fans.” OnlineBookClub review.
