    Spearpoint, the last human city, is an atmosphere-piercing spire of vast size. Clinging to its skin are the zones, a series of semi-autonomous city-states, each of which enjoys a different---and rigidly enforced---level of technology. Following an infiltration mission that went tragically wrong, Quillon has been living incognito, working as a pathologist in the district morgue.

    Michael says: "Worthwhile slightly lacking"
    "Numerous unexpected turns ... it is Sci Fi"
    Overall

    I found this audible book to be of medium grade pulp, keeping my mind occupied when I would otherwise be bored while traveling. The story line is much the same as all others of this genre, with a few more unexpected twists and turns.

    Story
    (2204)

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Devin says: "Great Epic Scifi"
    "Slow listening"
    Overall

    I took this and a number of other stories with me as I visia Asia for three months. This is definitely a slow listening book. I give this a rating of 3 out of 5 due to the author's inability to capture and keep my attention. The main reason for this rating is due to the huge theme and shifting focus as different stories, with in a single story, are all told. Other books from this author have been much better.
