Peter F. Hamilton returns to the future world of Mindstar Rising
with an engrossing new adventure of Greg Mandel, a freelance operative whose telepathic abilities give him a crucial edge in the high-tech world of the twenty-first century.
Professor Edward Kitchener, a double Nobel laureate researching quantum cosmology for the powerful Event Horizon conglomerate, has been savagely murdered. But was he the victim of industrial espionage, personal revenge, or a crime of passion by one of his handpicked team of live-wire students?
Event Horizon needs to know, and fast, so Greg Mandel, PSI-boosted veteran of the infamous Mindstar Battalion, must embark on an urgent investigation that ultimately leads him to an astounding confrontation with a past, which, according to the dead man's theories, might never have happened.
"Peter Hamilton manages a very neat trick, combining deft scientific and social speculation with page-turning appeal of the best thrillers." --Tad Williams
"Mindstar Rising is more than a taut, suspenseful story--it's intellectually exciting as well, its future world full of surprises but all too plausible, its people made strange to us by this environment yet still disturbingly familiar." --Poul Anderson
