Waterstones Says

Set between 2027 and 2029, this chilling dystopian debut thriller follows the devastating consequences of deadly nerve agent attacks in London and a dogged police officer determined to catch whoever is responsible.

The attacks won't stop. Neither will she.

London 2027. Terrorists deploy London Black, a highly sophisticated nerve gas, at Waterloo Station. For the 'Vulnerables', exposure means near-certain death. A lucky few survive, aided by Boost injections.

London 2029. Copy-cat attacks plague the city. DI Lucy Stone, a guilt-ridden Vulnerable, is called to investigate a gruesome murder of a scientist, who might have held the key to an antidote. But is the antidote real? And can Lucy solve the case before her Boosts stop working, leaving her defenceless once again? The clock is ticking - and London Black is in the air...

MEDIA REVIEWS
'London in Black is a truly absorbing novel - an all-day-on-the-couch read if ever there was one. Its vision of the near future is plausible enough to be legitimately frightening... an unusually compelling thriller and will, I hope, be the first of many from him' Kevin Brockmeier, author of The Brief History of the Dead

'A compelling debut... with a protagonist you want to root for, and a fast-paced mystery at its heart. Excellent!' Guy Morpuss, author of Five Minds

'A taut and timely blend of crime and dystopia' Alex Scarrow, author of the DCI Boyd thrillers

'Noir meets dystopia in this genre bending, whirlwind of a read. Lutz's terrifying imagined future is startlingly relevant to our own troubled present. Read if you dare' Amy Lilwall, author of The Biggerers

“Would Make a Great Movie!”

Thank you to the publishers for this debut dystopian thriller.
It is fast paced throughout, you are always on edge with each chapter.
I think it would make a great movie or TV series - so maybe read the book first.
