Surface Detail - Culture (Paperback)Iain M. Banks (author)
- 10+ in stock
The ninth Culture book from the awesome imagination of Iain M. Banks, a modern master of science fiction.
It begins in the realm of the Real, where matter still matters.
Lededje Y'breq is one of the Intagliated, her marked body bearing witness to a family shame, her life belonging to a man whose lust for power is without limit. Prepared to risk everything for her freedom, her release, when it comes, is at a price, and to put things right she will need the help of the Culture.
It begins in the realm of the Real. It begins with a murder.
And it will not end until the Culture has gone to war with death itself.
