A technician at one of the world’s largest Virtual Reality companies, J. lives a fairly ordinary life. Except for the prescient dreams he has started having. Foretastes of the future.

And does it really matter?
A washed out journalist, posted to India to cover a bloody election campaign, uncovers truths about his son's life - and death - in the country, truths that test loyalties forged in the war zones of Bosnia and Rwanda. A fiercely evocative narrative of modern-day India, filled with the clamour and hot stinks of its capital, this is a novel of death woven through with life.
