‘Revelatory. Harry Harrison’s novel about Earth on the edge of disaster is both bracing and cathartic … impressively prescient’ Guardian
The planet’s population has exploded and resources are stretched to breaking point. And, in a sweltering, overcrowded New York City of 35 million desperate inhabitants, a police detective must try to solve a murder. The basis of the cult film Soylent Green, this eerily prophetic novel is a nightmarish vision of a world in meltdown.
