A series of apparently random murders draws amiable, old-school Detective Mick Matlock into a world of sex, politics, reality TV and a bewildering kaleidoscope of opposing identity groups. Lost in a blizzard of hashtags, his already complex investigation is further impeded by the fact that he simply doesn't `get' a single thing about anything anymore.
Meanwhile, each day another public figure confesses to having `misspoken' and prostrates themselves before the judgement of Twitter. Begging for forgiveness, assuring the public "that is not who I am". But if nobody is who they are anymore - then who the f**k are we?Ben Elton returns with a blistering satire of the world as it fractures around us.
Get ready for a roller-coaster thriller, where nothing - and no one - is off limits.
