This book packs real power into every page." Charlie Human"Farren has created an extraordinary narrator in Malachi...[An] intense and memorable [read]." SFXNominated for the 2020 Nommo Awards for Speculative Fiction by Africans . Malachi, a mute thirty-year-old man, has just received an extraordinary job offer.

In exchange for six months as a warden on a top-secret organ-farming project, Raizier Pharmaceuticals will graft Malachi a new tongue.

So Malachi finds himself on an oilrig among warlords and mass murderers.

But are the prisoner-donors as evil as Raizier says?

Do they deserve their fate? As doubt starts to grow, the stories of the desperate will not be silenced - not even his own.

Covertly Malachi comes to know them, even the ones he fears, and he must make a choice - if he wants to save one, he must save them all. And risk everything, including himself.
