'A vision of the future that both chills and entertains.' -Sunday Express Proximity - The People's Book Prize Finalist 2019-2020If the police always know where I am, how do I kill you?Ten years of embedded technology - 'iMe' - has led to complete control and the eradication of crime.

You can't get away with anything, least of all kidnapping or murder. Then the impossible happens. A body is found, and the killer is untraceable. DI Clive Lussac, without the technology he has come to rely on, must remember his old time detective skills if he and his young partner DC Zoe Jordan are to track the killer down before time runs out for the next victim... 'Proximity is inspired by the fascinating possibilities of technology, AI and the law of unintended consequences.

From my own experience, technologists are often amazed or horrified about the other uses that people imagine for their products.

Clive and Zoe's world might be closer than we think, but is it heaven or hell?

How do we decide the perfect balance of free will and greater good?' -Jem TugwellThe iMe series are fast paced crime thrillers set in an eerily believable near future world -think Roy Grace meets Black Mirror.
