The peripheral

The peripheral

Gibson, William, 1948- author

Some time around the year 2020, in a trailer park in the Deep South, a young woman witnesses a murder. She is in a video game, and watches with horror as a drone strike kills a child. At precisely the same moment, one hundred years in the future, a boy is remotely killed on the streets of London's great skyscrapers. The perpetrator remains anonymous. Interweaving two strange futures, from a ramshackle community of US army veterans, to the teeming masses of a mega city, 'The Peripheral' tells the story of a brave new world of drones, outsourcing and kleptocracy, and of a crime that can only be solved across time
