Alif the Unseen

by G Willow Wilson

This fantastical thriller is a runaway-train of a read, certain to delight fans of The Da Vinci Code. It is no ordinary tale of a computer whiz-kid-turned-saviour of the modern world. Immerse yourself in a cat and mouse drama for the digital age, and be prepared to meet some otherworldly characters along the way.

Extract

The frantic confusion of the last two days was settling into something else: a malaise, a desire for nothing more than to sleep in his own bed, even if it meant waking up to the police. Was not capture inevitable anyway? Alif could think of no other dissident, religious or political, who had successfully evaded State. He was no different – no smarter, no better equipped.
