A near-future science fiction thriller.
Police Analyst Haz Edmundson arrives at a crime scene in the abandoned warehouses of the megacity now covering West Yorkshire. Riots are rolling across the city as the police engage in street warfare against protestors. Haz discovers the dead body of an activist who has crashed through the factory roof and cocooned in a wingsuit used in a daredevil sport, her head shattered by a mysterious mid-air impact.
The case is immediately swept aside and labelled an 'accidental death.' However, Haz knows there's more to the case than the higher-ups are letting on, someone is working hard to bury a murder, and the more Haz investigates the more dangerous the trail becomes.
Set in a near-future Britain where technology has disguised the landscape with utopian megacities, and a population under heavy surveillance, entertain themselves with purchased memories, while robotic drones pervade both life and liberty.
Welcome to Airedale
A cyberpunk murder mystery thriller deserves some cool digital extras, right?
Here's what we have for you!
Airedale has a lot of specials. Character development is [chef’s kiss] – as someone who spent a LOT of time in the Airedale region, I can tell you it is full of real people with all the smooth or desperate idiosyncrasies that seem to come with their roles. There’s a familiarity in the characters, almost a comforting reality to them.
Airedale is a cyberpunk police procedural featuring politics, subversion, riots and local businessmen. It’s full of wonderful details of integrated technology and state surveillance, what’s changed and what hasn’t. ... If you like William Gibson but have always wished someone would write in a similar vein but with uncool characters in small town Yorkshire (it can’t just be me), you are definitely onto a winner here.
