Peter Grant was once the Met Police's first trainee wizard - yes, they exist - in fifty years.

Now, he's facing fatherhood and a new job, with equal amounts of panic and enthusiasm. Leaving his old police life behind, he takes a job with Silicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner's new London start up: the Serious Cybernetics Corporation. Drawn into the orbit of Old Street's famous 'silicon roundabout', Peter thinks it should be a doddle compared to his last job.

But he doesn't know that a secret is hiding in the building.

A secret that stretches back to Lovelace and Babbage, and forward to the future of artificial intelligence.

A secret that is just as magical as it technological - and twice as dangerous... * * * * * * *'A masterfully crafted world gives the late, great Terry Pratchett a run for his money' The Sun'Full of mystery, magic and fantastic characters.
