London, 2050. The socio-economic crisis of recent decades is over and consumerism is thriving.
Ownership of land outside the city is the preserve of a tiny elite, and the rest of the population must spend to earn a Right to Reside. Ageing has been abolished thanks to a radical new approach, replacing retirement with blissful euthanasia at a Dignitorium.
When architect Philip goes missing, his wife Alice risks losing her home and her status, and begins to question the society in which she was raised. Her search for him uncovers some horrifying truths about the fate of her own family and the reality behind the new social order.

Tunde Farrand absolutely nails dystopia and its unsettling predictions, with incredible writing' - Buzz Magazine; `One of those books that really get under your skin' - Books and Me *****; `An addictive and worryingly prescient read' - Never Imitate; `An all too plausible story, well told' - A Life in Books; `A truly gripping page-turner... This stunning debut had me horrified and thrilled' - The Bookmark Blogger, `Farrand's stunning debut novel...is an excellent example of taking existing social phenomena and divisions and formalising them into a dystopian setting-in this case, class and inequality... [Her] real skill here is in drip-feeding the reader with details until the true horror of the book's setting is revealed' - Electric Literature
