A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.
Robertson's debut science fiction thriller CRASHING HEAVEN introduced us to one of the most bizarre and well-constructed visions of the future: a deep space universe where the dead live on, in digital format, as 'fetches' capable of haunting the living world as ghosts on Station, a battle-scarred asteroid which is humanity's final refuge. However, those who cannot haunt are stored in a series of hard drives which are a version of hell. Leila is on a mission to find her brother Dieter's fetch, but her journey is littered with obstacles, with the diabolical Pressure Men conspiring against her as she soon comes to realise that her quest is for more than her brother's soul but could also be connected to a terrible disaster that could wipe out mankind. Cyberpunk thrills dialled up to the maximum level, unrelenting noir atmosphere, and enough spills and thrills for a variety of universes, this is top notch dystopian future adventure at its most gripping. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
Waking Hell by Al Robertson
Return to the world of Station in the sequel to the acclaimed Crashing Heaven. Leila Fenech is dead. And so is her brother Dieter. But what's really pissing her off is how he sold his afterlife as part of an insurance scam and left her to pick up the pieces. She wants him back so she can kick his backside from here to the Kuiper Belt. Station is humanity's last outpost. But this battle-scarred asteroid isn't just for the living. It's also where the dead live on as fetches: digital memories and scraps of personality gathered together and given life. Of a sort. Leila won't stop searching Station until she's found her brother's fetch - but the sinister Pressure Men are stalking her every move. Clearly Dieter's got himself mixed up in something a whole lot darker than just some scam. Digging deeper, Leila discovers there's far more than her brother's afterlife at stake. Could it be that humanity's last outpost is on the brink of disaster? Is it too late for even the dead to save it? Waking Hell is a sequel to Crashing Heaven, the novel that announced the arrival of this exciting new talent.
