    Tom Dreyfus is a Prefect, a law enforcement officer with the Panoply. His beat is the multifaceted utopian society of the Glitter Band, that vast swirl of space habitats orbiting the planet Yellowstone, the teeming hub of a human interstellar empire spanning many worlds. His current case: investigating a murderous attack against one of the habitats that left 900 people dead, a crime that appalls even a hardened cop like Dreyfus.

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "Best yet of the Revelation Space series"
    "The Prefect delivers!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have listened to many of Alastair Reynolds books on Audible, he has created a highly detailed and intriguing universe containing interesting characters and places. The life breath of this universe is the continuity from story to story, that thread of recognition contain in names and places from previous stories, as you listen to each new story. This is just one small aspect of why I look forward to each new installment.

    The character of Field Prefect Dryfus as the hard driving cop with the moral imperative to protect the citizens of the Glitter band from the impending collision of a twisted destiny forge by the leftover remnant of an experiment gone badly, is one of Reynolds best.

    The performance of each story by John Lee is enthralling, each character uniquely endowed with personality through the force of his vocal nuances.


    What other book might you compare The Prefect to and why?

    Dune. Paul Atreides and the fight protect and free that planet.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    To many to pick just one!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just the feeling of awe in this expanding universe.
