The Final Programme
By Michael Moorcock
Jerry Cornelius - secret agent and adventurer, scientist and superhero, saint and sinner - fights out a grim vendetta in a French chateau, gunning his way through the fleshy jungle of a devastated London and across the icy wastes of Sweden. Dogging him every step of the way is the wily Miss Brunner, ruthless techno-magician with a sado-masochistic bent. Kidnappings and killings are mere stage dressing to Cornelius and Brunner's battle to control a revolutionary code for producing the ultimate human being: the Final Programme.
