    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"

    Story
    Where does The Prefect rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I only have a handful of Sci-Fi to rank it with and I would put this at about the mid point... if I could ignore the narration, I could give it better marks.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Prefect?

    Whip-Hound revenge.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narration was the sticking point for me on this audiobook. Lee gives very little life to most of the characters and his accent lends itself to about two-three variations. His pauses between between words became predictable and were kept between characters. It really became annoying.


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

    Annoyance at times... but again, due to the narration. Not sure why people enjoy Lee so much. But I have not heard any of his other work... maybe it is just me.


    Any additional comments?

    The Prefect is a great sci-fi story. The tech is really inventive. The plot is unique. Some of the character interaction is a little bit unbelievable and at times brings what should be a climatic pace down to a crawl. I attribute this partly to the narration.

    Saturday, 0911 hours — A blast rocks a London hospital and thousands are dead or injured. 1009 hours — Joe Ledger arrives on scene to investigate. The horror is unlike anything he has ever seen. Compelled by grief and rage, Ledger rejoins the Department of Military Sciences, and within hours he's attacked by a hit team of assassins and sent on a suicide mission.

    Jim "The Impatient" says: "THIS ISN'T A SODDEN COMIC BOOK"
    "Another great piece of work."

    If you could sum up The King of Plagues in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting plot twists.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Joe Ledgers new companion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Way too many to list.


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

    There are several points were Ledger and crew just click together. Porter is fantastic.


    Any additional comments?

    Ledger's character is a bit abrasive at first (first book) but Ray Porter does such a fantastic job (with all the characters) that I am sure that was the author's intent. Ledger grows on you very quickly and by the third book, you want to have a beer with the guy. Great sci-fi/cop crossover.
