Synopsis

Words are weapons, and one man is immune, in this dazzlingly original thriller from the author of Jennifer Government.
Sticks and stones break bones... but words can kill. They recruited Emily Ruff from the streets. They said it was because she's good with words. They'll live to regret it. They think Wil Parke survived something he shouldn't have. But he doesn't remember. Now they're after him and he doesn't know why. There's a word, they say. The most powerful thing in the world. And they want it back... Find out why in one of the most mind-bending, page-turning, thrilling novels you'll ever read.
