以架空歷史為題材的驚悚小說，喜歡Philip K. Dick《高堡奇人》的讀者千萬不能錯過！這是一個我們熟知的當代美國社會，人手一隻智慧型手機、大多數人每天都上社群網站打卡按讚，惟一不同的是──南北戰爭從未發生，美國仍有四個州未廢止蓄奴！
有如Philip K. Dick的《高堡奇人》（The Man in the High Castle），《理性與感性與海怪》、《ANDROID機器人‧安娜》作者班．H．溫特斯（Ben H. Winters），以架空歷史為題材的驚悚小說！
'The most timely of alternate history novels. Ben Winters has created a spellbinding world that forces the reader to look around―and to look within. This is a thriller not to be missed and one that will not be easily forgotten.' Hugh Howey
It is the present-day, and the world is as we know it. Except for one thing: slavery still exists.
Victor has escaped his life as a slave, but his freedom came at a high price. Striking a bargain with the government, he has to live his life working as a bounty hunter. And he is the best they’ve ever trained.
A mystery to himself, Victor tries to suppress his memories of his own childhood and convinces himself that he is just a good man doing bad work, unwilling to give up the freedom he is desperate to preserve. But in tracking his latest target, he can sense that that something isn’t quite right.
For this fugitive is a runaway holding something extraordinary. Something that could change the state of the country forever.
And in his pursuit, Victor discovers secrets at the core of his country's arrangement with the system that imprisoned him, secrets that will be preserved at any cost.
‘It is a rare thing when a writer has a fresh new provocative idea – and then executes it beautifully. This is what Ben H. Winters has done in his novel Underground Airlines. Imagine an America in which slavery still exists. Now imagine a dramatic telling of the story.’ James Patterson
