YOUR HAPPIEST MEMORY IS THEIR DEADLIEST WEAPON. Fabulous... Present-day science fiction that feels like the best sort of spy novel NEIL GAIMAN, author of Coraline This is Prophet. It knows when you were happiest. It gives life to your fondest memories and uses them to destroy you... An all-American diner appears overnight in a remote British field. And the deaths quickly follow. A weapon like no other - Prophet - is targeting innocent people. But nobody knows who created it, or why. Sunil Rao seems a surprising choice of investigator. Chaotic and unpredictable, the former agent is the antithesis of his partner Lieutenant Colonel Adam Rubenstein, the model of a military man. But Sunil has the unique ability to distinguish truth from lies in objects, words and people, in the past and in real time. And Adam is the only one who truly knows him, after a troubled past together. Now, as they battle this strange new reality, they are drawn closer than ever to defend what they both hold most dear. Prophet can weaponise the past. But only love will protect the future. Prophet is a blast SUNDAY TIMES A thrilling dystopian novel TIME ***A NEW STATESMAN BOOK OF THE YEAR***
