Synopsis

9Tail Fox by Jon Courtenay Grimwood

A noir melding of ancient Chinese folklore, organised crime and cutting edge medical technology.

A policeman is murdered in San Francisco. And spends the rest of the novel hunting down the man who did it. And trying to get the answer to some terrifying questions. Why is he in another man's body? Why is someone trying to kill him. Again. And why is he being haunted by a nine tailed Albino fox?

From the shell-shattered streets of Stalingrad in 1942 to the back allys of San Fransico's chinatown, evocative of place, crystal clear in its depiction of character this is literary fantastic fiction at its most compelling from one of the most exciting writers working today.
