On a dystopian and ruined Earth ruled by The Committee, Alan Saul wakes in a crate about to be incinerated. Not knowing how he got there, he seeks revenge on the person who tortured him. Meanwhile, abandoned Martian colonists struggle to achieve self-sufficiency as they face extinction. The Departure is the start of a new series for Asher, so no previous knowledge of his writing is necessary to get sucked in to his vision of 22nd-century Earth. Saul is ruthless and deadly, but a compelling character nonetheless. Action packed and thrilling, The Departure is a must for all fans of contemporary science fiction who haven’t experienced Asher’s visceral novels before.
