This book is a Horror Story (not British literature).

You won't see them unless you know where to look... High above London's teeming streets exists a timeless universe with laws and codes known only to itself. Suspended in the skies by a complex system of cables and wires, two rival factions prepare to do battle for control of their world and eventual manipulation of the city below.

When Rose, a beautiful, feisty amateur photographer, and Robert, a shy but cynical scriptwrite accidently witness a rooftop kidnapping and bizarre rooftop murders are discovered almost daily, the pair want to know more.

But in their clumsy efforts to understand, they are caught in an intense power struggle between honest seekers of another life, and the consummate evil of a power-mad leader in control of society's hopeless. Together Rose and Robert become inextricably caught up in a violent war among a nearly invisible people who could easily control the future of the world.

You'll never look up the same way again...
