A powerful post-nuclear holocaust novel described by the author as, 'my cry against the monstrous weapons men have made'. Everyone thought, when the alarm bell rang, that it was just another fire practice. But the first bombs had fallen on Hamburg and Leningrad, the headmaster said, and a full-scale nuclear attack was imminent . . . It's a real-life nightmare. Sarah and her family have to stay cooped up in the tightly-sealed kitchen for days on end, dreading the inevitable radioactive fall-out and the subsequent slow, torturous death, which seems almost preferable to surviving in a grey, dead world, choked by dust. But then, from out of the dust and the ruins and the desolation, comes new life, a new future, and a whole brave new world...

This is a gripping and moving story of people separated by war and its consequences: consequences which reach down the decades and cannot be ignored.

Children of the dust, children of the never-never... or the never-were... In Vietnam, ancestors are everything: as an old Vietnamese saying goes, a son without a father is a river without a source. Children of the dust - dua bui - are the children fathered and left behind by American soldiers in Vietnam. They are the 'dust of life', children of the enemy, treated with contempt and pushed to the very edge of Vietnamese society. Tran lives in Ho Chi Minh city and works in an international hotel, serving drinks to westerners keen to cash in on the 'new Vietnam'. As he mixes cocktails and endures the brutishness of many of the hotel's guests, he tries not to think about his father. Cruikshank is one of those westerners, a man unable to forget Vietnam: unable to forget the war, haunted by a lost love and a flagging career. When an anonymous package arrives from Hanoi, Tran and Cruikshank are joined together in a journey of self-discovery and danger that will unravel much more than they ever expected. Through the deadly minefields of brutal post-war operations and the heartbreak of lost opportunity comes a deeply human story that delivers truths and legacies of a war long past - truths and legacies that echo through the years into the present. This is a gripping and moving story of people separated by war and its consequences: consequences which reach down the decades and cannot be ignored.
