Revelation Spaceby Alastair Reynolds
Revelation Space is very good "high sci-fi," written by an author who has a real background in physics and interesting ideas about how our science could progress, especially the possible evolution of cybernetics and post-humanism. The book posits a strange parallelism between digital entities and the use of nano technology. It's also engaging and keeps you guessing till the very end. I would recommend this to any sci-fi head, especially those who like hard sci-fi.

Scientist Dan Sylveste is determined to solve the Amarantin riddle before ancient history repeats itself and he forges a deadly alliance with the cyborg crew of a spaceship. But as Sylveste closes in on a secret, a killer closes in on him. A "Locus" Best First Novel of the Year. (June)
Alastair Reynolds's critically acclaimed debut has redefined the space opera with a staggering journey across vast gulfs of time and space to confront the very nature of reality itself.
