Europe in Autumn

Europe as we know it is gone.

Devastated by a flu pandemic and crippled by economic collapse, the continent has fractured into countless tiny nations, a fragile web of shifting alliances seething with espionage and strange new technologies.

In a small restaurant in Krakow, chef Rudi is drawn into a new career with Les Coureurs des Bois, a shadowy organisation that will move anything across any state line – for a price.

Soon, Rudi is in a world of high-risk smuggling operations, where kidnappings and double-crosses are as natural as a map that constantly redraws itself.

‘A spellbinding novel of intrigue and paranoia.’ The Guardian

‘An awesome concoction of sci-fi and spies.’ Tor.com

‘High-octane thrills, mind-twisting concepts, smart and engaging storytelling.’ Locus
