Publisher's Summary

Featuring Inspector Dreyfus - one of Alastair Reynolds' most popular characters - this is a fast-paced SF crime story, combining a futuristic setting with a gripping tale of technology, revolution and revenge.

One citizen died a fortnight ago. Two a week ago. Four died yesterday...and unless the cause can be found - and stopped - within the next four months, everyone will be dead. For the Prefects, the hunt for a silent, hidden killer is on....

Alastair Reynolds has returned to the world of The Prefect for this stand-alone SF mystery in which no-one is safe. The technological implants which connect every citizen to each other have become murder weapons, and no-one knows who or what the killer is - or who the next targets will be. But their reach is spreading, and time is not on the Prefects' side.

Read by John Lee.

    "Not his best"

    This was enjoyable but not one of his best. I enjoyed the familiar setting and characters. I enjoyed John Lee”s narration as usual but i felt most of the characters sounded similar to each other. Better differentiation in the Prefect.

    "Great story, really well read "

    Full marks to John Lee for his reading. It makes all the difference to an audio book when the narrator gives character to his performance. Well done also to Alastair Reynolds. Another great adventure.

    Story
    "Excellent world building sci-fi combined with a twisty detective story "

    I’ve read other A Reynolds stories but this was my first listen on Audible. I enjoyed the story as above (great Sci-fi world building continuing from earlier stories in this universe, The Prefect, Chasm City etc which might help but aren’t essential) and the combination with a detective story. The narrator was entirely clear and the different characters voices and accents probably do help to differentiate speakers, but the pace was a little too deliberate for me. Four not five stars for Mr Lee
