Mulligan Burke, an over-the-hill P.I. who has forsaken the evils of Personality implants, is brought back from Alaska to investigate the murder of one of the Prophets. The Prophets inhabit the highest position of the social hierarchy - they dictate fashion trends. Fashion, in this instance, encompasses much more than clothing. And, as Burke discovers, being fashionable is something to die - or kill - for.

Give me one word…

Why do you say that?

Mulligan Burke is an old aged PI who has been brought back from his retirement from Alaska in order to solve the mystery, who killed Defiance? Throughout the story we follow him as he attempts to gather as much information as possible to give the people the answer they want.

Earle creates a beautiful world where fashion dictates personality and where you wouldn’t be caught dead in last season’s line. His characters are well thought out. The contrast of Burke who is very business like and is lightened by his specific humour to the Prophets and others around him is beautifully done. Each of the Prophets seemed to live up to their name and I especially enjoyed the glimpses of Bliss that were given to us and I would love to have had more interaction with them.

When I first started the story I will admit that I was slightly confused at what was going on as we are thrown into the thick of it but within a few pages everything falls into place. Earle manages to keep the story fast paced and keeps you guessing right until the very end.

I was not disappointed by the end of this murder mystery. I would highly recommend this if you love the dystopian genre but I do warn you that it will leave you wanting more.
