A WORLD HALF IN DARKNESS. A SECRET SHE MUST BRING TO LIGHT.
2059. The world has stopped turning.
One half suffers an endless frozen night; the other, nothing but burning sun.
Only in a slim twilit region between them can life survive.
In an isolationist Britain clinging on in the twilight zone, scientist Ellen Hopper receives a letter from a dying man. It contains a powerful and dangerous secret.
One that those in power will kill to conceal...
