One of the most exciting new science fiction writers of the new millennium, Paul McAuley has already won the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the Philip K. Dick Award, and the John W. Campbell Award. Now he presents a disturbingly convincing exploration of the future of Africa, the darker applications of biotechnology, and the very nature of the human psyche. Plague, civil war, and rampant genetic engineering have spawned widespread chaos and devastation throughout Africa. Nicholas Hyde is investigating a reported massacre in a remote corner of the Congo when his team is attacked by a band of fierce ape-like creatures, possibly the result of illegal experimentation on chimpanzees. Nick survives the encounter, only to discover himself at the center of a massive government cover-up. Despite threats and warnings, Nick is determined to uncover the origin of the mysterious creatures – but even the atrocities he has already witnessed cannot prepare him for the terrifying secret of... the White Devils.
