Lou is different to 'normal' people. He interacts with the world in a way they do not understand.

He might not see the things they see, however, but he also sees many things they do not.

Lou is autistic. One of his skills is an ability to find patterns in data: extraordinary, complex, beautiful patterns that not even the most powerful computers can comprehend.

The company he works for has made considerable sums of money from Lou's work.

But now they want Lou to change - to become 'normal' like themselves. And he must face the greatest challenge of his life.

To understand the speed of dark. SPEED OF DARK is a powerful near-future thriller, the theme of which is both universal and intensely personal.

It is dedicated to the author's own autistic son, and to other parents of autistic children, 'in the hope that they also find that delight in difference'. Find out more about this title and others at www.orbitbooks.co.uk
