About this title


Jack Womack's Ambient novels have been acclaimed as a "feat of brilliance...speculative fiction at its eerie best" by Entertainment Weekly. Now he delivers the sixth and final book in the series, a breathless and brilliantly imagined story that is a cautionary tale of contemporary society. Walter Bullitt is a freelancer for the U.S. government, testing new psychotropics on himself and groups of unsuspecting citizens, and generally "fixing" things. His conscience has never impeded his work, until he's asked to get involved in a murderous plot to sabotage Bobby Kennedy's presidential campaign. Then a pair of ghosts start turning up in his apartment, begging him to provide some kind of help. While he's enjoying a Velvet Underground show at Max's Kansas City, two outre femmes fatales frogmarch him out, straight into a mission to save the world, both his own and the alternate one they've arrived from.

About the Author:

Jack Womack was born in Kentucky in 1956. Having survived a Kafka-esque childhood, he travelled to New York, saw it with an outsider's eye and has never been the same since. In Womack's novels, New York is strange and unsettling, a city of joy and pain, horror and transcendence. Dubbed 'the coolest writer of his generation', Womack is the favourite author of William Gibson.
