A Scandinavian, futuristic, crime thriller with a style that pays homage to classic ‘noir’ detective fiction.
The year is 2068. In Eldísvík city state, on the edge of the Arctic Circle, a police ‘decoy’ agent, shadowed by her trained pack of genetically altered foxes, contravenes orders and slaughters members of a criminal cartel.
Inspector Nero Cavallo must hunt this unidentified decoy agent down before the fragile balance between the legitimate and criminal worlds erupts into chaos.
Meanwhile, Bruno Mastriano, a young man hiding his telepathic powers, struggles to escape a gang of militants intent on exploiting his gift for themselves.
When a beautiful trainee joins Nero’s homicide team, things begin to unravel.
A story of murder, conspiracy, betrayal and love – experience the future of Nordic noir.
Jan Turk Petrie’s debut novel is a gripping read that should appeal to fans of Margaret Atwood, Philip K Dick, J.G. Ballard and the masterful Raymond Chandler.
“A series for those who want to take Nordic noir to the next level.”

“Well, what a humdinger of a book this turned out to be …
I’m well and truly hooked. It’s rare that I reach the end of a book shouting “Oh no” as I realise it’s finished. I look forward to my next visit to Eldisvik.”
