A bold and shocking novel set in a near-future Britain, about gender, power and betrayal.

The patriarchy has been toppled. In London, the bell of Big Elizabeth rings from the Palace of Westminster whilst women discuss politics in the Wombs, free-bleeding centres.

Government-worker Art Alden knows that there is something terribly, frighteningly wrong with the new world. Until now, his unrequited love for Dana Mayer - the Prime Minister - has prevented him from taking a stand.

When men start disappearing all over the country, Art knows it's time to act. But Dana's regime is listening, and the price for disloyalty - both to one's country, and to those we love - is higher than Art could ever have imagined.
