Pacific Rim meets Fast & Furious. Nobody has taken part in the Devil's Run annual road race as often as Dutch McGuire and lived to tell the tale. She's never won a race, but she'd give anything for a chance to be first across the finishing line.

The racecourse circumnavigates the post-apocalyptic ruins of Teijouan, and with a choice between being eaten by the monstrous Kaiju that prowl the island's devastated cities or murdered by her fellow racers, the odds against even surviving another Run, let alone winning it, are slim.

Dutch doesn't care about the odds nearly so much as she cares about getting back behind the wheel of her beloved Ford Falcon--except for one problem: she's spent the last five years incarcerated in a high-security prison for her part in a heist. So when a crooked billionaire offers to put her back in the race on condition she uses it as cover for a secret retrieval operation, she can't refuse.

Can Dutch survive assassins, monsters, and psychopathic drivers long enough to complete her mission as well as take part in the race--or is this the year death finally catches up with her in a blazing tangle of wreckage?

To be considered alongside the leading triumvirate of British hard SF writers: Al Reynolds, Peter Hamilton, and Neal Asher. - The Guardian. Gibson has certainly proved himself a name to watch. - SFX.
