Publisher's Summary

The City of Silk is restless, its people suffering in the grip of corruption. Then, one hot July evening, The Leader gathers his followers, half-trained men and boys, and storms the House of Power.

Caught up in the mayhem is quiet, scholarly Ashes. He had been inspired by The Leader's charisma, but now he's not so sure. What happens over the next six days will change the small island's future forever....

Critic Reviews

"Roffey's writing is raw and visceral and she thrusts her readers headlong into the middle of the action." ( Observer)
"Goes to the heart of questions of political temptation and folly; it grips from beginning to end." ( Sunday Times)
