  • "Joe Spork repairs clocks, a far cry from his late father, a flashy London gangster. But when Joe fixes one particularly unusual device, his life is suddenly upended. Joe's client, Edie Banister, is more than just a kindly old lady--she's a former superspy. And the device? It's a 1950s doomsday machine. And having triggered it, Joe now faces the wrath of both the government and a diabolical South Asian dictator, Edie's old arch-nemesis. With Joe's once-quiet world now populated with mad monks, psychopathic serial killers, scientific geniuses, girls in pink leather, and threats to the future of conscious life in the universe, he realizes that the only way to survive is to muster the courage to fight, help Edie complete a mission she gave up years ago, and pick up his father's old gun..."
  • "Ein rasanter Genremix aus Spionageroman, Abenteuergeschichte und Gangsterkomödie, wie er nur aus England kommen kann. Joe Spork, meisterhafter Uhrmacher und Sohn der Londoner Gangsterlegende Mathew 'Tommy Gun' Spork, führt ein ruhiges Leben weit weg vom kriminellen Erbe seines Vaters. Edie Banister, neunzigjährige Spezialagentin im Ruhestand, führt ebenfalls ein ruhiges Leben und verabscheut jede Sekunde davon. Doch dann setzt Joe eine Weltuntergangsmaschine in Gang, und ihre Wege kreuzen sich. Plötzlich müssen sie sich gegen zwielichtige Regierungsvertreter, wenig fromme Mönche und einen diabolischen asiatischen Diktator verbünden. Schon bald wird klar: Um die drohende Katastrophe abzuwenden, muss Edie eine alte Rechnung begleichen. Und Joe sich seiner Vergangenheit stellen... Nick Harkaway, 1972 in Cornwall geboren, studierte Philosophie, Soziologie und Politikwissenschaft und hat bereits als Drehbuchautor, Blogger und Werbetexter gearbeitet. 'Der goldene Schwarm' ist sein zweiter Roman und wurde, genau wie sein Debut 'Die gelöschte Welt', von der Presse gefeiert und mehrfach ausgezeichnet (2012 Oxfam Emerging Writer Prize im Rahmen des Hay Festivals, Shortlist für den Clarke Award und den LA Times Book Prize). Nick Harkaway lebt mit seiner Familie in London."
