"I really enjoyed this book too. Noir, crime, and sci-fi fans should enjoy it a great deal."

Reviewer: .


Charlie Maddison, downbeat gumshoe in a sci-fi world that's falling apart, gets hired by a socialite to deal with a stalker. Nothing unusual, until he sees the stalker's face...

It's short, but gripping, fast moving, and for anyone into noir or detective fic, an awful lot of fun. The twists start early so I am not going to spoil the plot. The writing style is part-Chandler part-Gibson, the world is part-Sam Spade, part-BladeRunner and the characters are distinctive and deep with their own motives. No one is who they seems, no one can be trusted, and best of all, the twists that pile up make sense.

I didn't realise until I'd finished it why the world and style seemed so familiar. I'd read Girl of Great Price, another book in the series before.

I liked that one, and I really enjoyed this book too. Noir, crime, and sci-fi fans should enjoy it a great deal.
