ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- I've always been a fan of a posse, a crew, a bunch. Here an unusual gang come together under the umbrella of Sisters of No Mercy, a nebulous urban collective operating as a kind of support network for people in need. Vincent Silk has brought together, amid a post-disaster scenario, some strong characters in Pinky, a young guy drifting from house to house through a disturbing back-story, and Almond, a ninja-like operative suppressing an internal rage, and Del, a benevolent soul who's there for everyone. Not your ordinary pack of avengers. Craig Kirchner


Mega-storm Martha has wreaked havoc and it's harder than ever to find a home. Hapless Pinky, Del - mother-hen and mentor - and the ever-resourceful and sometime sleuth Almond are members of Sisters of No Mercy. A band of vigilantes, a pack of thieves or a new wave commune, this underground network has a fresh target: heir and mogul to a mining and property fortune, Dirk Trench. Can these underdogs take on the establishment and win?

Vincent Silk's zingy debut novel fuses climate fiction, hysterical realism with all the tension of a carefully planned and finely executed heist. Written with humour, stinging social observations and surprising insight, Sisters of No Mercy announces Silk as an exciting literary voice.
