Sixth and final book in the Merchant Princes series, sequel to The Revolution Business.

Every­thing’s going to hell in all three parallel worlds, our United States, the Gruinmarkt, and New Britain. The con­ser­v­a­tive faction of the world-walking Clan has launched a nuclear attack on the U.S.—and the U.S. is going strike back, hard. The only realistic option for the pro­gres­sive wing is to find sanctuary in New Britain, where the monarchy was recently overthrown in a bloody revolution.

Charlie Stross brings the series to a haunting, nuclear-fired conclusion.
