Living the last of his eight lives, Count Alandre Sessine VIII races against time to defuse a lethal conspiracy on its way to Earth, while a betrayer is fast on his heels

Blackwell North Amer
Ever since his stunning novel The Wasp Factory set readers on fire, Iain M. Banks has been defying category and convention with his thrilling speculative fiction. Now he goes a step beyond his previous imaginative journeys to create his most exciting and provocative science fiction novel yet.

Count Alandre Sessine VII has already died seven times. He has only one life left - one last chance to catch his killer. His only clues point to a conspiracy beyond his own murder. For a catastrophe is fast approaching the earth from which there is no escape - until a loophole through apocalypse is discovered. And a chosen few will do anything to keep it a secret.

Someone has betrayed Sessine, killed him before he could uncover the truth. Now he has three days before his funeral to live the way men used to live: restricted to one life where one mistake could be his last.

Suddenly he finds himself an outlaw, a fugitive, a desperado.

And his only hope of survival is finding others like himself.

Others who hold a piece of the puzzle to an enigmatic weapon of salvation and chaos...

More of a slice-of-life book than a true action book, however it does have a clever story.

NOTE: one of the points-of-view is written in a very cryptic form of English. This makes it extremely difficult to read, however it does get easier with practice. Do not be tempted to skip these sections!
