    Welcome to Golden State, where the worst crime you can commit is to lie.

    Laz Ratesic is a veteran of the State’s special police. Those in power rely on Laz to discover the full and final truth.

    But when a man falls from a roof in suspicious circumstances, it sets in motion a terrifying series of events which will shatter Laz’s world for ever.

    Because when those in control of the truth decide to twist it, only those with the power to ask questions can fight back.

    Golden State is an ambitious and frighteningly timely novel set in a world where everything is recorded and no one can be trusted. For anyone who loved The Handmaid's Tale, The Power and Station Eleven.
