    From of the author of The Silk Code, winner of the 1999 Locus Award for Best First Novel, comes another intriguing blend of science fiction and hard-boiled police-procedural mystery.

    Overall

    I tried, honestly, I did, to make it through this audiobook. I just couldn't do it. The plot had me intrigued, but the prose was flat and - as was mentioned earlier - focused on things that added nothing to a scene (e.g. food). For example, there was one line that read something like "She handed me the lemonade. It was delicious." Gah, awful, awful, and unnecessary too!

    I found the exposition clumsy and painful as well - anytime one character brought up something even remotely obscure, the other character would say "Ah yes, you mean..." and then proceed to give us a world history of the obscure topic. People do not talk like that - at least not anyone I know.

    Anyway, interesting plot, poor delivery. I'd pass.
