Summary
With a sloth on her back, a cynical wit, and a talent for finding missing items, Zinzi December lives with other "animalled" criminals in a violent slum. When she's hired to find a missing musical duo, she finds more than she bargained for.
Critique
Beukes writes of an urban underworld in the not-too-distant future with wit and wordplay. It's a page-turning, imaginative, riveting work. Winner of the 2011 Arthur C. Clarke award for Science Fiction. Highly recommended.
