Cover & Synopsis: “Ack-Ack Macque” by Gareth L. Powell

Amazon has released the cover art and synopsis of the upcoming novel Ack-Ack Macque by Gareth L. Powell.

Here’s the synopsis:

In 1944, as waves of German ninjas parachute into Kent, Britain’s best hopes for victory lie with a Spitfire pilot codenamed ‘Ack-Ack Macaque’. The trouble is, Ack-Ack Macaque is a cynical, one-eyed, cigar-chomping monkey, and he’s starting to doubt everything, including his own existence. A century later, in a world where France and Great Britain merged in the late 1950s and nuclear-powered Zeppelins encircle the globe, ex-journalist Victoria Valois finds herself drawn into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the man who butchered her husband and stole her electronic soul. Meanwhile, in Paris, after taking part in an illegal break-in at a research laboratory, the heir to the British throne goes on the run. And all the while, the doomsday clock ticks towards Armageddon.

  1. That may be the wildest synopsis I’ve ever read. I have to read that book now. Besides Gareth being a great writer, I mean.
