Victor Gollancz: London. 1994.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Near future sf novel.

''Justice City is the punishment block, the Strangeways of the future... a woman-killer dies in the first stage of induction, a drugging process known as thresholding. Our cop, Alec Duncan, is made to feel like an outsider, though as a black Scot he's used to that. The possibilities are satisfyingly various: the edgy, intelligent thrills are constant'' (Oxford Times) ''remarkable for the unswerving ferocity of its depiction of a milieu in which small-minded intolerance is given full rein. It is an economically swift and tightly plotted thriller. Recommended'' (Interzone).
