Zai is an international assassin who's in it for the travel. So, when his new agency starts to send him on assignment to places that do not exist, it's a dream come true. Crooked accountants, faerie industrialists, hero scientists, down-at-heels gods, secret police chiefs. A hidden continent colonised by refugees from sunken Atlantis, a secret space station, an aerostatic city-state, a post-apocalyptic Faerie Land, a Britain that has taken the hardest Brexit of all. Whoever you are, and wherever you hide, X-Dimensional Assassin Zai will find you... but not until he's taken some happy snaps and tried the local cuisine.


“Infinitely imaginative, XDA Zai is a twisting tale of travel, adventure and unconventional murder that will have you ripping through the pages. I’ve never liked a soulless assassin so much!” —Devin Madson, author of We Ride the Storm

"Multiversal murder? Extradimensional travel through the strange liminal spaces of airports? Mayhem from the mind of Jason Franks? Sign me up." —Justin Jordan, author of Luther Strode and Spread
