Synopsis

CONTAINS TWO COMPLETE NOVELS!

For the first time in a single volume, Peter F. Hamilton’s acclaimed novels—Mindstar Rising and A Quantum Murder—set in a near-future so real it seems ripped from tomorrow’s headlines
 
In Mindstar Rising, Greg Mandel, gifted—or cursed—with biotechnology that makes him a living lie detector, is hired to investigate corporate espionage by Event Horizon, a powerful company about to introduce a technology that will solve the energy problems of a world decimated by global warming.

Set two years later, A Quantum Murder once again teams Mandel with Event Horizon and its beautiful young owner, Julia Evans, in a locked-room mystery that combines the ingenuity of an Agatha Christie novel with cutting-edge speculative brilliance.

Read together, these novels take on fresh depth and complexity, underscoring the magnitude of Peter F. Hamilton’s creative talent.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Fun read!

    Essential reading for any Peter Hamilton fan. His early work doesn't quite compare to his later stories but it's still a great story with likeable characters and a good plot.

    Dystopia Meets Augmented Cerebral Function

    This author presents a reduced, barely coping England after effects of global warming and climate change trigger government and political developments. The economic and social profile that the author presents is rinteresting in itself. But then the 2 mysteries in these 2 novels, investigated by an ex soldier who has cognitively augmented psi skills, and his group of friends , take imaginative and scientifically precocious directions. These two novels are not to be missed!

    Retired fan

    My favorite sci-fi writers are gone (Asimov and Clarke) - They would marvel at Peter Hamilton's ability to weave engrossing tales of possible futures, starring characters that the reader can not only identify with, but anxiously await the next page to follow - no, participate in! - their story. Kudos, I have a new favorite future historian!
