Synopsis:
A high-tech business park on the Mediterranean coast is the setting for a crime of the most disturbing kind in this extraordinary bestseller from one of Britain's most important living novelists.After over three decades at the forefront of modern British fiction writing, J.G. Ballard reached a new generation of readers with the bestselling Cocaine Nights (1996) - an intriguing murder mystery that was also an unnerving vision of a society with too much time on its hands. In Super-Cannes, he delves into another closed community - where this time 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 the executives who live in this ultra-modern workers' paradise. But what caused her apparently sane predecessor to set out one morning and murder ten people in a shooting spree that made headlines around the world? As Paul investigates his new surroundings, he begins to uncover a thriving subculture of crime that is spiralling out of control.
