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.
“Great fun . . . sort of a post-catastrophe techno-thriller.”—The San Diego Union-Tribune, on Mindstar Rising
“Reads like a collaboration between William Gibson and Ian Fleming.”—Publishers Weekly, on Mindstar Rising
“A taut, suspenseful story . . . full of surprises.”—Poul Anderson, on A Quantum Murder
