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.
