9780099445128: Electric

It's the middle of February and all over Auckland the lights are going out.

Samuel Usher is a data-retrieval specialist: a broken man working on broken machines. Sam's drinking too much, taking too many drugs - trying to get by. Until he meets Candy and Jules, two drifting mathematicians, each after a Holy Grail - the one perfect theory that will make their worlds complete. After five years together, neither is getting any closer to their goal.

As for Sam - he just wants Candy. And for a while, it looks as if he may have her. Then Jules is found in a coma, and Candy disappears. All Sam's left with is a strange list of numbers and three words: ANYWAY FREEDOM GOODBYE.

Sam's pursuit of the truth will lead him into an underworld of chaos and turbulence, where numbers rule and love and friendship collide.

Review:

"A writer of great imagination" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"The hypnotic pull of Taylor's story lies in the zigzag dance of its forlorn characters casting a murky, uneasy sense of doom" ( Guardian)

"An inventive and intelligent thriller" ( GQ)

"An exciting read" ( Scotland on Sunday)

From the Publisher:

A stunning literary thriller from New Zealand's best-kept secret – smart, sexy and darkly hip.
