Tasked with solving an impossible double murder, detective John Finch searches for the truth among the rubble of the once-mighty city of Ambergris. Under the rule of the mysterious gray caps, Ambergris is falling into anarchy. The remnants of a rebel force are demoralized and dispersed, their leader, the Lady in Blue, not seen for months. Partials—human traitors transformed by the gray caps—walk the streets brutalizing the city’s inhabitants. Finch’s partner Wyte, stricken with a fungal disease, is literally disintegrating. And strange forces are marshaling themselves against detective Finch even as he pursues his one clue: the elusive spymaster Ethan Bliss. How much time does Finch have before time itself runs out?
Nominated for both the Nebula and the Locus awards.

"Fungal noir. Steampunk delirium. Paranoid spy thriller . . . A clear signal, if one were ever needed, that [VanderMeer] remains one of modern fantasy's most original and fearless pioneers." —Richard K. Morgan
"I can't remember ever reading a book like Finch. Audacious in technique, and extravagant in imagination. Jeff VanderMeer gives us deeply sympathetic characters—especially Finch himself—who inspire us to care about their flawed and tyrannized world. I'm impressed." —NYT bestseller Stephen R. Donaldson
