The explosive J. G. Ballard
renaissance, which began with the 2009 publication of The Complete Stories of J. G. Ballard, now continues with his first

Millennium People tells the story of
David Markham, a psychologist who is searching for the truth behind a bomb that
exploded on a Heathrow baggage carousel, killing his ex-wife. Infiltrating a
shadowy protest group responsible for her death, David finds himself succumbing
