Synopsis:
A high-tech business park on the Mediterranean is the setting for a most disturbing crime in this extraordinary bestseller from the author of Crash and Cocaine Nights. After over three decades at the forefront of modern fiction, J.G. Ballard reached a new generation of readers with the bestselling thriller Cocaine Nights. In Super-Cannes, he delves into another closed community, where it is claimed that 'work is the new leisure'. A disturbing mystery awaits Paul and Jane Sinclair when they arrive in Eden-Olympia, a high-tech business park in the hills above Cannes. Jane is to work as a doctor for those who live in this ultra-modern workers' paradise. But what caused her predecessor to go on a shooting spree that made headlines around the world? As Paul investigates, he begins to uncover a thriving subculture of crime that is spiralling out of control. Both novel of ideas and complex thriller, Super-Cannes is an extraordinary satire from the author of Empire of the Sun, Drowned World and Crash. Extreme Metaphors, a collection of interviews with Ballard, will be published in 2012.
