Summary

Summary

In this frightening, high-concept science fiction thriller, a mute survivor of civil war must confront the horrors of organ farming on a deep-sea oilrig.

Nominated for the 2020 Nommo Awards for Speculative Fiction by Africans

Malachi Dakwaa has survived civil war but he's now mute, after his tongue was cut out. Disengaged from his world, he's performing mind-numbing work in a factory when he gets an extraordinary job offer. In exchange for six months as a warden on a top-secret organ-farming project, Frasier Pharmaceuticals will graft a new tongue for him.

Far out to sea, Malachi finds himself among warlords and mass murderers like the kind who ruined him. But are the prisoners as evil as Frasier says? Do they deserve their fate?

As doubt starts to grow, Malachi's own memories rise until he is faced with a terrible choice. Should he remain silent and let the prisoners suffer, or risk his life to set them free?

Editorial Reviews

“Grace and hope elevate The Book of Malachi from the foundations of its sci-fi action thriller narrative. The questions Farren asks about who controls our ideas about forgiveness, who deserves it and why, could stay with you for a long time.” New Scientist
“Farren has created an extraordinary narrator in Malachi…Intense and memorable.” SFX
