A high-tech business park on the Mediterranean coast is the setting for crime of the most disturbing kind in this extraordinary new bestseller from the writer widely regarded as Britain's No 1 living novelist - author of Cocaine Nights. After over three decades at the forefront of modern British fiction writing, J.G. Ballard reached a new generation of readers with the bestselling Cocaine Nights (1996) - an intriguing murder mystery that was also an unnerving vision of a society with too much time on its hands. Now, in Super-Cannes, he delves into another closed community - where this time it is claimed that 'work is the new leisure.' A disturbing mystery awaits Paul and Jane Sinclair when they arrive in Eden-Olympia, a high-tech business park in the hills above Cannes. Jane is to work as a doctor for the executives who live in this ultra-modern workers' paradise. But what caused her apparently sane predecessor to set out one morning and murder ten people in a shooting spree that made headlines around the world? As Paul investigates his new surroundings, he begins to uncover a thriving subculture of crime that is spiralling out of control.
