On 19 May, Hodder will publish Matthew Blakstad’s debut novel Sockpuppet, which you’re going to love. it’s Neal Stephenson meets The Thick of It, and it’s amazing. But Sockpuppet might not be quite the beginning of the story… Today we’re thrilled to reveal the cover of Fallen Angel, the stand-alone, novella-length prequel to Sockpuppet. Modems, early internet hoaxes and Geocities… it’s all here.
On 5 May you’ll be able to find out how the Martingale Cycle really begins, when Matt’s novella-length thriller Fallen Angel publishes. (Fallen Angel will beavailable from fine e-retailers everywhere, of course.)
1998: the London art world is about to be wowed by the daring stunts of maverick artist Jon Mangan. But his shady fixer is pursuing other opportunities… opportunities that will lead them into the internet’s dark side.
2000: the dot com bubble is starting to burst. Someone just hacked a government department and software ace Sean Perce is under suspicion. He needs to cash up and escape his failing startup firm – and fast. Because the bodies are about to start piling up…
Now these two childhood friends will find their worlds colliding, triggering a spiral of mayhem, death and computer viruses.
The cover for Fallen Angel is by our wonderful Ben Summers, who also did the absolutely stand-out cover for Sockpuppet. So, without further ado:
It is the nature of information to make itself free.
See you on 5 May!
