Lin ‘The Silent One’ Vu is a gangster in Chinese-occupied Hanoi, living in the steaming, paranoid alleyways of the 36 Streets. Born in Vietnam, raised in Australia, everywhere she is an outsider.

Through grit and courage, Lin has carved a place for herself in the Hanoi underworld under the tutelage of Bao Nguyen, who is training her to fight and survive. Because on the streets there are no second chances.

Meanwhile the people of Hanoi are succumbing to Fat Victory, an addictive immersive simulation of the US-Vietnam war. When an Englishman – one of the game’s developers – comes to Hanoi on the trail of his friend’s murderer, Lin is drawn into the grand conspiracies of the neon gods: the mega-corporations backed by powerful regimes that seek to control her city.

Lin must confront the immutable moral calculus of unjust wars. She must choose: family, country, or gang. Blood, truth, or redemption. No choice is easy on the 36 Streets.

Description

36 Streets:

Review

“Raw and raging and passionate, this is cyberpunk literature with a capital f*cken L.” Richard Morgan (author of Altered Carbon)

“Brutal, brooding, brilliant  . . . an angry vision of violence wrapped around a complex meditation of memory, trauma and hegemony. This is cyberpunk with soul” – Yudhanjaya Wijeratne (author of Salvage Crew)

“High-octane, immersive SF at its best. 36 Streets is sure to become a classic in the field.” – Kaaron Warren (Shirley Jackson Award-Winner)

“Napper paints a prophetic and uncomfortably believable vision of the future. A fascinating interplay between advancing technology and wish fulfillment, 36 Streets is ambitious in scope while remaining deeply human.” Tim Hickson (Hello Future Me)

“A fun, frenetic journey of neon-blasted streets, sinister underworlds and oodles of brutal tech, rendered in cutthroat prose” – Jeremy Szal (author of Stormblood)

“Beautiful, shimmering, ghostly science fiction” – Anna Smith Spark (author of The Court of Broken Knives)

“Rising star of Australian speculative fiction T.R. Napper gives us an engrossing, intriguing action-packed duty tour of a tech-thick, violence-infused, neon-scorched near future gangland Vietnam. Highly recommended.” – Cat Sparks (author of Lotus Blue)
