    In Newcastle-upon-Tyne, AD 2142, Detective Sidney Hurst attends a brutal murder scene. The victim is one of the wealthy North family clones – but none have been reported missing. And the crime’s most disturbing aspect is how the victim was killed. Twenty years ago, a North clone billionaire and his household were horrifically murdered in exactly the same manner, on the tropical planet of St Libra.

    The combination of author and reader is magic. The story is exciting and contagious. Always a pleasure to listen to the team of P.F. Hamilton and T. Longworth.

    Certainly no strangers to peculiar occurrences, agents Wellington Books and Eliza Braun are nonetheless stunned to observe a fellow passenger aboard Britain's latest hypersteam train suddenly vanish in a dazzling bolt of lightning. They soon discover this is not the only such disappearance...with each case going inexplicably unexamined by the Crown. The fate of England is once again in the hands of an ingenious archivist paired with a beautiful, fearless lady of adventure.

    Twenty years later, time has weakened the resolve of the Musketeers and dispersed their loyalties. But treasons and stratagems still cry out for justice: civil war endangers the throne of France, while in England, Cromwell threatens to send Charles I to the scaffold. Dumas brings his immortal quartet out of retirement to cross swords with time, the malevolence of men, and the forces of history. But their greatest test is a titanic struggle with the son of Milady, who wears the face of Evil.

    At first i was unsure with the reader of this installment but within 20 mints I was in the wonderful world of Alexandre Dumas. I have totally enjoyed these novels and am sad they are coming to an end.

    It's the 21st century, and global warming is here to stay, so forget the way your country used to look. And get used to the free market, too – the companies possess all the best hardware, and they're calling the shots now. In a world like this, a man open to any offers can make out just fine. A man like Greg Mandel for instance, who's psi-boosted, wired into the latest sensory equipment, carrying state-of-the-art weaponry – and late of the English Army's Mindstar Battalion.

    Story

    I am a fan of Peter F Hamilton. This series of books has everything that good fiction should have "True Entertainment Value". Original Ideas and science mixed with a gripping detective plot. I kept me interested and wanting more. the books in this series end properly without a cliff hanger. I bought the second book because i enjoyed the first not because i needed to know what happened. Toby Longworth reads well and is consistent. His voice changes just enough from character to character to make it interesting without sounding silly. He dose not try to hide the fact he is a man when reading a female character. I look forward to more of this series and checking out other readings by Toby.
