Author(s): J G Ballard

Location(s): Provence

Eden-Olympia is more than a mere business park. It is an expensive and intense hive, the modern “Dream Palace” of “a new elite of administrators, enarques and scientific entrepreneurs”: its aim, “to turn Provence into Europe’s silicon valley”. Paul Sinclair finds himself with time on his hands in this radical environment when his young wife takes a job at Eden-Olympia. She replaces a doctor who killed 10 executives with a rifle before shooting himself. He left no note and no explanation. Sinclair finds himself living in the same house and learning some of the same lessons as the killer.
