Reviews

"A thrilling near-future noir mystery....A fascinating book from a writer with great vision." --Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse Novels series

"Smart, weird dystopia." --Margaret Atwood

"The skill with which Ashby introduces her various SF elements is worthy of the best Heinlein.... Company Town never falters in its pacing. It's a terrific ride." --Locus

"This is brave, bold, crazy storytelling at the edge and doesn't read like anything else I've seen up or down the pike." --Chuck Wendig, New York Times bestselling author of Aftermath

"A brilliant and chilling look at our post-oil future. I haven't been this hooked by an SF novel for ages." --Charles Stross, author of the Laundry Files series

"Loved Company Town, Madeline Ashby's wonderfully imaginative new sci-fi mystery with a fascinating female protagonist." --Feminist Frequency

"The world is an updated version of Raymond Chandler's, with gray morals and broken characters, and Hwa's internal monologue has just the right balance of introspection and wit...[a] very solid page-turner." --Publishers Weekly

"A fascinating mix of detective noir and near-future SF with cinematic world building and a broken, but resilient, unquestionably badass heroine." --Booklist

"Ashby's action scenes come thick and fast...the ideas, setting and relationships that make the story really worth reading." --New Zealand Herald
