Summary

Brass Man is the third novel in Neal Asher's popular Agent Cormac series.

On the primitive world Cull, a knight errant called Anderson hunts a dragon, not knowing that elsewhere is a resurrected brass killing machine, Mr Crane, assisting in a similar hunt. Learning that this old enemy still lives, agent Cormac pursues while scientist Mika begins discovering the horrifying truth about an ancient alien technology.

Each day is a survival struggle for the people of Cull. Ferocious insectile monsters roam their planet as they try to escape to their forefathers' starship, still orbiting far above them. But an entity with questionable motives, calling itself Dragon, assists them with genetic by-blows created out of humans and the hideous local monsters. And now the supposedly geologically inactive planet itself is increasingly suffering earthquakes....

I’m really enjoying the agent cormac series

I started listening to the agent cormac series last in my library of Neal Asher and it was a good idea as it is giving more depth to the story by knowing the peripheral histories, great books highly recommended

Excellent Performance!

Yet another fine continuation of the Cormac series
With another great narration from Rik Jerome,
Can someone sign him up for a recast of the Entire Foundation Saga & Robot Series?
