'The twenty-first century is when it all changes, and you've got to be ready.'

Separate from the government; outside the police, beyond the United Nations: Torchwood sets its own rules. A team of investigators, using alien technology to solve crime - both alien and human. This British sci-fi crime thriller, created by Russell T Davies, sees them delve into the unknown. A group of people fighting the impossible. The series stars Captain Jack Harkness played by John Barrowman, last seen in Doctor Who.

This novel is a brand-new Torchwood story.
