new on my shelf : THE TRAVELLER

"Think George Orwell's 1984 crossed with THE MATRIX,
and you probably have the best description of the Traveller."

New York Times
‘Page-turningly swift with a cliff-hanger ending…..
A cyber 1984’

Amazon.co.uk Review
Sometimes--not very often--
a debut novel comes along which marks out a new writer
as a consummate craftsman,
seemingly fully formed with that first book.

The Traveller is such a book;
the mysterious John Twelve Hawks is such a writer
(his publishers give no information about him,
except that he ‘lives off the grid’).

A remarkable debut.
