Places In The Darkness by Chris Brookmyre exclusive cover launch

Check out the cover reveal for Chris Brookmyre’s Places In The Darkness


Chris Bookmyre’s Places In The Darkness will be hitting bookstands in November, and we’ve got the cover for you thanks to Orbit. Here’s what you need to know about the space-bound SF from the author of One Fine Day In The Middle Of The Night, Bedlam and Dead Girl Walking.

The bestselling crime writer ventures into space for his new novel Places In The Darkness . . .

“They say that in space no one can hear you scream, but if that’s true then no one told Chris Brookmyre. For his latest novel, Places In The Darkness, the Scottish novelist has gone far beyond the bleak landscapes of his homeland – all the way to Ciudad de Cielo, the City in the Sky, where scientists and engineers work to build the first colony ship that will one day take humanity to the stars.

But when a common criminal is murdered, the repercussions threaten to bring the entire project to its knees. Investigators Freeman and Blake – the former a jaded veteran, the latter a promising rookie – must put their differences aside and work quickly to uncover the truth behind the first ever murder in space . . . or risk becoming the killer’s next victims.”

Places in the Darkness will be published by Orbit in hardback on 9 November 2017. SciFiNow launches the cover exclusively today, with artwork by Steve Stone and design by Charlotte Stroomer.
