Europe in Autumn is a thriller of espionage and the future which reads like the love child of John le Carré and Franz Kafka.Rudi is a cook in a Kraków restaurant, but when his boss asks Rudi to help a cousin escape from the country he’s trapped in, a new career - partspy, part people-smuggler - begins. Following multiple economic crises and a devastating flu pandemic, Europe has fractured into countless tiny nations, duchies, polities and republics. Recruited by the shadowy organisation Les Coureurs des Bois, Rudi is schooled in espionage, but when a training mission to The Line, a sovereign nation consisting of a trans-Europe railway line, goes wrong, he is arrested, beaten and Coureur Central must attempt a rescue.

With kidnapping, double-crosses and a map that constantly re-draws, Rudi begins to realise that underneath his daily round of plot and counter plot, behind the conflicting territories, another entirely different reality might be pulling the strings...

4.0 Europe in Autumn - Dave Hutchinson
I have to admit, I spent the majority of Europe in Autumn going 'okay, so this book is about a future Europe and there have clearly also been some technological advances but how is it SFF?' and then suddenly it was. Except that the thing that makes it SFF only appears about 80% or so of the way thro...

3.0 Europe in Autumn
This is good in its own right, but it does bear a striking resemblance to China Mievilles City and the City. Looking forward to the next part.
