"Rich in moral and social issues, it is devastating about racial attitudes and tantalisingly inconclusive."
The Sunday Times
"an explosive Noughts and Crosses instalment"
The Guardian
"one for the existing fan base"
Financial Times
"Both exhilarating thriller and astute social commentary, Blackman is as relevant, thought-provoking and timely as ever"
The Bookseller

Years have passed since the love between Sephy - a Cross - and Callum - a Nought - destroyed their world and changed their families and society forever. Society appears to be very different now. For the first time ever, a Nought Prime Minister - Tobey Durbridge - is in power. Race and class don't divide people anymore. But things are never really that easy. Because Tobey's just been framed for murder, and the only way to free himself is to turn to his oldest friend - Callie-Rose.
