Description
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.
