Below the neon skies of Dayzone – where the lights never go out, and night has been banished – lowly private eye John Nyquist takes on a teenage runaway case. His quest takes him from Dayzone into the permanent dark of Nocturna. As the vicious, seemingly invisible serial killer known only as Quicksilver haunts the streets, Nyquist starts to suspect that the runaway girl holds within her the key to the city’s fate. In the end, there’s only one place left to search: the shadow-choked zone known as Dusk.

Jeff Noon (born Jeff Noon, b. 1957) is an English writer, author of the Wirth trilogy and several theater plays.  Biography Jeff Noon was born in 1957, eight miles north of Manchester, in the small town of Droylesden. According to the writer himself, this was not the best place for people with a humanitarian mindset. One of Picasso`s paintings, seen by Jeff at a ridiculously young age, made such a strong impression that the child was seriously and for a long time carried away by painting. Entering the University of Manchester was a logical step forward. Once in the world of new and interesting people, the previously closed Nun began to slowly open up, realizing that his talent would be enough for some kind of artistic action. Studying painting and drama, the young talent is fond of theater, and his very first play "Woundings", dedicated to the war for the Falkland Islands, won a prestigious theater competition. It is also worth mentioning the participation of Jeff Noon in an experimental punk project with an ordinary name for those years - "Manicured Noise". It is difficult to say what happened next, but Jeff`s work was at some kind of dead end. He got a job in a bookstore, where he worked as a salesman for five years, until one of his friends, who opened his own publishing house, asked him to scribble something from old memory. What Jeff did is on the bookshelves, in yellow binding and with the word "Wirth" on it. After this book, the writer, as they say, woke up famous. The Arthur Clarke Award for the best book in the genre of science fiction has added a certain amount of fame. Virt is an innovative epic that has created Nun`s cult status even among readers who have always avoided fiction. Labels were hung by all and sundry: Philip Dick of our day, Ed McBain under acid, etc. etc. Without stopping at what has been achieved, the author continues to work on the prequel "Virta", the novel "Nimformation" with a plot revolving around a grotesque lottery game. After this novel, the writer claims that in addition to the constant influence on him as the author, Lewis Carroll, Borges`s influence was added to him in this book. The TV version of Woundings was filmed in 1997, and Wirth premiered in 1999. Noon`s latest collection of short stories, Pixel Juice, won the prestigious John Campbell Award for Best New Author.  Works Novels and Novels Wirth / Vurt (1993, Arthur Clark Prize 1994, Russian edition 2003) Pollen / Pollen (1995, Russian edition 2005) Automatic Alice / Automated Alice (1996) Nymphomation (1997, Russian ed. 2004) Needle in the Groove (2000) Falling Out of Cars (2002, Russian ed. 2007) Storybooks Pixel Juice (1998) Cobralingus (2001) Mappalujo (2002; co-written with Steve Beard) Plays Woundings (1986) Vurt - The Theater Remix (1998) The Modernists (2003) Awards and awards Arthur C.
