Description

Peter F. Hamilton’s groundbreaking Mandel Files series concludes with The Nano Flower, a tour de force of unbridled imagination and cutting-edge scientific speculation.
 
Greg Mandel is a psychic detective whose skills have been augmented by powerful but dangerous biotechnology. Those abilities have won him success and almost killed him many times over. Little wonder that he has settled down to the life of a gentleman farmer.
 
But Greg’s former employer, the mighty tech company Event Horizon, needs him once more. After Royan, hacker-genius and husband to company owner Julia Evans, mysteriously vanishes, a business rival suddenly boasts an incredible new technology. Has Royan been kidnapped and forced to work for his captors, or is the truth far stranger? The answer may lie in a gift of flowers received by Julia—flowers with DNA like nothing on Earth. Greg already has his hands full with corporate killers and other unsavory characters. Is he going to have to add aliens to the list?
 
The Greg Mandel trilogy—which also includes Mindstar Rising and A Quantum Murder, available in Volume 1set a new standard for science fiction when it first appeared in the 1990s. The Nano Flower is every bit as gripping today—and even more timely.

Praise For The Nano Flower

“An immaculately imagined and executed near-future world, lush prose, crystal-sharp dialogue . . . unreservedly recommended.”—Interzone
 
“Brilliant . . . an epic of ultra-technology, alien contact, and a love story that literally spans the stars.”—Locus
 
“Gratifyingly complex and challenging—indeed, impossible to summarize adequately, what with battles, love stories, vendettas, imponderable aliens, and robust characters: a fine trilogy, sure, but [The Nano Flower is] in a class by itself.”—Kirkus Reviews
