Synopsis: In Finch, mysterious underground inhabitants known as the gray caps have reconquered the failed fantasy state Ambergris and put it under martial law. They have disbanded House Hoegbotton and are controlling the human inhabitants with strange addictive drugs, internment in camps, and random acts of terror. The rebel resistance is scattered, and the gray caps are using human labor to build two strange towers. Against this backdrop, John Finch, who lives alone with a cat and a lizard, must solve an impossible double murder for his gray cap masters while trying to make contact with the rebels. Nothing is as it seems as Finch and his disintegrating partner Wyte negotiate their way through a landscape of spies, rebels, and deception. Trapped by his job and the city, Finch is about to come face to face with a series of mysteries that will change him and Ambergris forever.

Book Description Underland Press, Portland, OR, 2009. Trade Paperback. Condition: New. COULTHART John (illustrator). First US Edition. New and unread. 320 pages. Published concurrently with two limited edition hardcover versions - Finch: The Heretic Edition (150 copies) and Finch: The Rebel Samizdat Edition (350 copies). Nominated for both the Nebula and the Locus awards and shortlisted for the 2009 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel. Winner of the 2010 Spinetingler Award for the Best Cover (John Coulthart). An exciting noir thriller set in the fantastical city of Ambergris. The final, stand-alone installment of the critically acclaimed Ambergris Cycle. Without packaging this book weighs 450 grams - lighter than average so shipping costs may be reduced (depending upon the destination). This review from Richard (K.) Morgan:- Fungal noir. Steampunk delirium. Paranoid spy thriller, quite literally, on 'shrooms. Look, you don't send just anyone to write something like that - you send Jeff VanderMeer. Because you know that come Hell or Highwater (and both are right here in this book), VanderMeer will Get The Job Done. There's enough nightmare and grit in Finch to stock any urban fantasy fan's darkest imaginings for years to come. But VanderMeer makes most so-called dark fantasy look like chick-lit, and his visionary brand of imagining is closing on Burroughs at his best. Devastated post-war cityscapes, desperate temporary allegiances of the soul, and creatures dragged up out of the worst withdrawal hallucination you can possibly imagine - like something Len Deighton might have written at the top of his game, if he'd dropped a tab or six beforehand. This is VanderMeer's best book since Veniss Underground, and a clear signal, if one were ever needed, that he remains one of modern fantasy's most original and fearless pioneers.
