About this item

Award-winning fantasy and science fiction author China Miéville's began his astounding career with the fantasy King Rat, a mix of a young man's search for identity with a pulse-pounding story of revenge and madness.

“[Miéville's] prose melds James Herbert's nihilistic violence with the metropolitan paranoia of Martin Amis, circa London Fields.” —The Times (London)

Something stirs in London's dark—and has viciously murdered Saul Garamond's father. Framed for the crime, Saul breaks out of prison with the help of King Rat, and plunges into a subterranean world of rats, garbage, blood, and madness—a world Saul was born to rule. But King Rat has plans for Saul, his special weapon in a war that goes back to a town called Hamelin. . . .
