Publisher Description

It is the far future. The artificial intelligences created by humanity are now gods, and mankind mere ants who scrabble in their shadows across a million worlds.



The Lords of the Great Houses on the ever-night Moon of Hexator are suspected of the murder of one of their own. And merchant William Roxley, once a magistrate-priest, is unwillingly coopted to uncover the truth behind the killings.



With only the help of his naive young assistant and a brutish robot bodyguard, the man they call 'Sweet William' digs into the Moon's eerie existence. A collapsing society where many strange, terrible things are happening under night's unsettling cover.



Hexator is a place where nothing is what it seems, perhaps not even William Roxley himself!

REVIEWS



Praise for Stephen Hunt's novels:



‘Mr. Hunt takes off at racing speed.’

— THE WALL STREET JOURNAL



‘Hunt's imagination is probably visible from space. He scatters concepts that other writers would mine for a trilogy like chocolate-bar wrappers.’

- TOM HOLT





‘All manner of bizarre and fantastical extravagance.’

- DAILY MAIL



‘Compulsive reading for all ages.’

- GUARDIAN



‘An inventive, ambitious work, full of wonders and marvels.’

- THE TIMES



‘Studded with invention.’

-THE INDEPENDENT



‘To say this book is action packed is almost an understatement… a wonderful escapist yarn!’

- INTERZONE



‘Hunt has packed the story full of intriguing gimmicks… affecting and original.’

- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY



‘A rip-roaring Indiana Jones-style adventure.’

—RT BOOK REVIEWS



‘A curious part-future blend.’

- KIRKUS REVIEWS



‘Hunt knows what his audience like and gives it to them with a sardonic wit and carefully developed tension.’

- TIME OUT



‘A ripping yarn … the story pounds along… constant inventiveness keeps the reader hooked… the finale is a cracking succession of cliffhangers and surprise comebacks. Great fun.’
