The Space Between Us is a completely absorbing novel, highly inventive and unputdownable. When three strangers suffer strokes after seeing dazzling lights over Edinburgh and then awake entirely recovered, they are all convinced their ordeal is connected to the octopus-like alien creature discovered on a nearby beach. But they aren’t the only ones with an interest in the creature, with others who want to capture it at all costs. This is an adrenaline-filled first contact novel, laced with empathy, optimism and a celebration of our capacity to connect with one another, from one of Scotland’s most revered authors.
