The year is 2021. No child has been born for twenty-five years. The human race faces extinction. Under the despotic rule of Xan Lyppiat, the Warden of England, the old are despairing and the young cruel. Theo Faren, a cousin of the Warden, lives a solitary life in this ominous atmosphere. That is until a chance encounter with a young woman leads him into contact with a group of dissenters. Suddenly his life is changed irrevocably, as he faces agonising choices, which could affect the future of mankind.

Review:

"A book of such accelerating tension that the pages seem to turn faster as one moves along." --"Chicago Tribune" "As scary and suspenseful as anything in Hitchcock." --"The New Yorker" "Extraordinary. . . . Daring. . . . Frightening in its implications." --"The New York Times" "Fascinating, suspenseful, and morally provocative. The characterizations are sharply etched and the narrative is compelling."--"Chicago Sun-Times" "Extraordinary ... daring ... frightening in its implications." --"The New York Times" "She writes like an angel. Every character is closely drawn. Her atmosphere is unerringly, chillingly convincing. And she manages all this without for a moment slowing down the drive and tension of an exciting mystery." --"The Times" (UK)
