Sie leben nicht. Aber sie töten. Blutiger Drohnenangriff auf eine Pilgerstätte im Irak. Ein weiterer Angriff trifft eine kalifornische Universität. Die Biologin Linda McKinney ahnt nichts davon: Sie erforscht gerade eine besonders aggressive Spezies afrikanischer Ameisen, als sie mitten im Dschungel gekidnappt wird. Ihr Entführer heißt Odin, und er hat ihr offenbar das Leben gerettet. Wer sind die Mächte, die Lindas Forschungen zur Schwarmintelligenz unterdrücken wollen? Während sich in den USA grauenhafte Bombardements häufen und in den hintersten Winkeln des Planeten Millionen fliegender Tötungsmaschinen vom Band laufen, macht sich das Team um Odin und McKinney daran, die Menschheit vor der Vernichtung durch ihren eigenen technologischen Fortschritt zu retten ... Der neue Roman vom «Jules Verne des digitalen Zeitalters» (Frank Schirrmacher): visionär, verstörend, einzigartig. «Eine exemplarische Spitzenleistung eines kaum analysierten Genres. Übertreibung braucht Suarez kaum.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «Mit diesem perfekten Mix aus nervenzerfetzender Spannung und verständlicher Wissenschaftlichkeit etabliert sich Daniel Suarez in diesem spannenden Thriller als der legitime Erbe von Michael Crichton.» (Publishers’ Weekly) «Ein souverän geschriebener Thriller, bei dem wir uns am Ende nicht fragen, ob diese Fiktion eines Tages Wirklichkeit wird, sondern wann.» (Kirkus Reviews) «Dieser Roman ist näher an der Wirklichkeit, als die meisten Menschen glauben.» (Wired)

This book is a practical guide for those seeking to resolve disputes between neighbours who are at war with each other – whether it be about noise, overhanging branches, the position of a fence, or some other irritation that has sparked neighbour rage. It draws together the relevant strands of the law – on negligence, nuisance, misrepresentation, trespass, rights of way, boundaries, party walls, the right to light, trees and hedges, weeds and pests, waste water and drainage. Written by solicitors with many years’ experience of dealing with such disputes, it contains practical hints to hasten resolving difficulties, while recognising the desirability of restoring harmony between the disputing parties. It provides an insight into some of the many powers of the local authorities – to deal with noise, for example – which may be invoked to bring to an end the behaviour complained of. The importance of seeking to settle a dispute without having to resort to litigation is a theme running through the book, as is the ever-vexing question of costs.
