The Cube of Truth


A chillingly topical debut thriller about a society in the future where knowledge, money and power are one.

Tero Lilja works as a reconciliator for the corporate giant Celsius. He amends internet content according to the interests of paying clients. If information regarding a mistake made by a corporation starts to circulate, the Celsius boys will substitute the information with something harmless.

Until Lilja’s family is faced with a tragedy Celsius rushes to erase, that is.

Tero strikes back, and for the first time in his life he is faced with the dissidents driven to the margins of society. But can you defy Celsius?.

Press Quotes

Esa Mäkinen’s first novel continues the proud tradition of dystopia… Its visions resonate well with the present, which is shadowed by the broad internet spying of security services as well as the tendency of those in charge of social media to collect accurate information on the private lives of people — Helsingin Sanomat
