The Silent City cover

    Informed witha maturity of feeling too seldom encountered in science fiction: a metamorphic journey into disturbing possibilities of gender, social order and genetic science
    William Gibson

In a future Europe, where technology has been driven underground and the people tribalised by nuclear war and political conflicts, a young woman is born within an empty city. Unwittingly, she holds the key to genetic changes which have the potential to preserve the human species – but she must overcome the resistance of the elite few who remain within the city and oppose her.
