*CLAIRE NORTH WAS SHORTLISTED FOR THE SUNDAY TIMES YOUNG WRITER OF THE YEAR AWARD 2017*

From one of the most original new voices in modern fiction comes a startling vision of a world where nothing is so precious that it can't be bought . . .

'An extraordinary novel that stands with the best of dystopian fiction, from Nineteen Eighty Four to The Chrysalids, with dashes of The Handmaid's Tale' Cory Doctorow


Theo Miller knows the value of human life - to the very last penny.

Working in the Criminal Audit Office, he assesses each crime that crosses his desk and makes sure the correct debt to society is paid in full.

But when his ex-lover is killed, it's different. This is one death he can't let become merely an entry on a balance sheet.

Because when the richest in the world are getting away with murder, sometimes the numbers just don't add up.

From the award-winning Claire North comes an utterly gripping, page-turning and thought-provoking new novel which will resonate with readers around the world.

Praise for Claire North:

'Poignant and intensely gripping' Guardian
'Little short of a masterpiece' Independent
'Ambitious, immensely humane and full of philosophical panache' Sunday Times

A Mer-Tale
A Mer-Tale
Imagine you're a teenage mermaid who can transform between Mer and human form. How would you spend your time? All Thala wants to do is swim free, far beyond the boundaries of her family's protected waters. Instead, she's forced to stay within the confines of her Uncle's cliff top home. She struggles with life on land, battling her self-obsessed Uncle in any petty way she can. Isolated, bored and forbidden to delve into her family's bloody past, Thala feels like a prisoner and longs for change. So, when intriguing young Mermen from a rival pod reveal a hidden agenda and plan a risky journey, Thala dives straight in. Determined to find out what her Uncle's been keeping from her, it's not until she's face to face with her family's lifelong enemy that she realises she's in deep trouble and terrifyingly unfamiliar waters. A Mer-tale is a story about discovering your strengths, exposing secrets to the light of day and accepting the differences in others. Suitable for readers 12+ who enjoy strong, female characters taking the lead, A Mer-Tale includes a hint of romance, a touch of humour and plenty of undersea adventure.

Adjustment Day
Adjustment Day
People pass the word only to those they trust most- Adjustment Day is coming. They've been reading a mysterious blue-black book and memorising its directives. They are ready for the reckoning.

In this ingeniously comic work, Chuck Palahniuk's first novel in four years, he does what he does best- skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians hatch a nasty fate for the burgeoning population of young males; working-class men dream of burying the elites; and professors propound theories that offer students only the bleakest future. When it arrives, Adjustment Day inaugurates a new, disunited states.

In this mind-blowing novel, Palahniuk fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.

Alienist
Alienist
The internationally bestselling historical thriller, soon to be a Netflix series starring Luke Evans, Dakota Fanning and Daniel Bruhl.

Some things never change.

New York City, 1896. Hypocrisy in high places is rife, police corruption commonplace, and a brutal killer is terrorising young male prostitutes.

Unfortunately for Police Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt, the psychological profiling of murderers is a practice still in its infancy, struggling to make headway against the prejudices of those who prefer the mentally ill - and the 'alienists' who treat them - to be out of sight as well as out of mind.

But as the body count rises, Roosevelt swallows his doubts and turns to the eminent alienist Dr Laszlo Kreizler to put a stop to the bloody murders - giving Kreizler a chance to take him further into the dark heart of criminality, and one step closer to death.
