A powerful dystopian vision of a world where money reigns supreme, from a World Fantasy Award-winning author.

"An extraordinary novel that stands with the best of dystopian fiction, with dashes of The Handmaid's Tale." ---Cory Doctorow
NOMINATED FOR THE PHILIP K. DICK AWARD 2019.

The penalty for Dani Cumali's murder: 84,000.

Theo works 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.

These days, there's no need to go to prison - provided that you can afford to pay the penalty for the crime you've committed. If you're rich enough, you can get away with murder.

But Dani's murder is different. When Theo finds her lifeless body, and a hired killer standing over her and calmly calling the police to confess, he can't let her death become just an entry on a balance sheet.

Someone is responsible. And Theo is going to find them and make them pay.

Perfect for fans of 1984 and Never Let Me Go, Claire North's moving and unnerving new novel will resonate with readers around the world.
