The Nether is a virtual wonderland that provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose an identity and indulge your every desire. But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment, she triggers an interrogation into the darkest corners of the imagination. Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, The Nether is both a serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the consequences of living out our private dreams.

"The Nether is a gripping and deeply disconcerting look at the Internet and its role in one of the most disturbing issues of our times." - Telegraph

"‘The Nether’ is an emotional detective story first and foremost." - Time Out London

"Haley has taken as her subject several of the most fearsome betes noires of our age: paedophilia, the internet’s sinister imaginative power, and the symbiotic relationship between the two." - The Guardian
