The beginning of the science fiction Owner series, by a master of space opera, Neal Asher.

The Argus Space Station looks down on a nightmarish Earth. And from this safe distance, the Committee enforces its despotic rule. There are too many people and too few resources, and they need twelve billion to die before Earth can be stabilised. So corruption is rife, people starve, and the poor are policed by mechanised overseers and identity-reader guns. Citizens already fear the brutal Inspectorate with its pain inducers. But to reach its goals, the Committee will unleash satellite laser weaponry, taking carnage to a new level. This is the world Alan Saul wakes to, travelling in a crate destined for the Calais incinerator. How he got there he doesn’t know, but he remembers pain and his tormentor’s face. He also has company: Janus, a rogue intelligence inhabiting forbidden hardware in his skull. As Janus shows Saul an Earth stripped of hope, he resolves to annihilate the Committee and their regime. Once he’s discovered who he was, and killed his interrogator ...

'Fast, furious, violent, slightly tongue-in-cheek (I think) and a whole lot of fun that makes 1984 seem like a children’s tea party.'
British Fantasy Society

'Delivers plenty of thrills, and the climax also sets up a very intriguing status quo for the second volume.'
SFX

'Fast, dramatic stuff ... this is a book with lots of Asher trademarks: rapid pace, great action, messy consequences.'
