Comprised of four linked novellas, this debut depicts a near-future dystopian world transformed almost beyond recognition by environmental disaster. The British town of Sapphire, once a seaside resort, is now a wasteland. With limited opportunities and economic prospects, siblings Jenna and Del Hoolman survive by racing illegal "smartdogs," greyhounds genetically modified using human DNA. However, the kidnapping of Del's daughter Lumey quickly upends their already precarious existence. The Hoolman family's saga alternates with the tale of a young woman living in present-day London, whose fate is tied to theirs.
