When the interests of an idealistic left wing gardening collective and those of a cynical, possibly murderous, billionaire coincide and result in an uneasy alliance, you just know things are not going to turn out well for everyone. Catton writes beautifully, creating believable characters and a cleverly constructed, fast moving plot. There's a lot of sly humour too as the young idealists struggle with moral issues while the billionaire's actions appear increasingly evil. This is a literary thriller of the highest order even if it does not quite match the brilliance of her Booker Prize winning The Luminaries.
