Rosewater by Tade Thompson

Tade Thompson’s Rosewater is an electrifying cyberpunk thriller set in a near-future Nigeria after aliens have made contact with humanity. The city of Rosewater has grown up around an alien biodome with unsettling healing powers; the novel’s protagonist is one of a group of  ‘sensitives’ telepathically linked with the alien presence, who must investigate when his fellow telepaths start being eliminated. Rosewater won Thompson the 2016 Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction novel; Gary Wolfe has described it as ‘one of the most thoughtful and inventive alien contact tales of recent decades’.
