A Quantum Murder: The Greg Mandel Trilogy, Book 2 | [Peter F. Hamilton]

A Quantum Murder: The Greg Mandel Trilogy, Book 2

Dr Edward Kitchener, a brilliant researcher into quantum cosmology, lies dead with his lungs spread out on either side of his open chest. Only a mercenary or professional killer could have breached the premier-grade security system - but why would a professional waste time in ritual slaughter? Greg Mandel, psi-boosted ex-private eye, is enticed out of retirement to launch an investigation into a past which - according to Kitchener’s theories - might never have happened.

    Story
    "Greg Mandel back at it again"

    The first book was an introduction to what Greg can do and the story was pretty good also, this time hes back helping Julia Evans again and some of his friends are back.

    This time he is investigating a murder that's Quantum in nature if that makes sense at all, it appears as if the murder was done in the same manner as a famous killer that's been locked up for a while so he couldn't do it, right? - that's where it gets strange and there is no was you will guess what the outcome is, I was guessing all the time at what happened and was wrong most all of the time, what happens is pretty strange.

    This is another product of the early 90's as it has some of the theories that were going around then and made them into facts possibly even correctly in some cases - there are parts about global warming with melting ice caps and a housing market crash which lately is sounding more real compared to the melting ice caps.

    with that being said its not "dated" as some older Sci-Fi is from the same era other than some names of companies that either don't exist or haven't merged like the names in the book suggest but its all good since the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey has a Pan Am jet in it but they went out years ago it doesn't bother me much

    Nothing is wrong with these books its just not up to what I like about the later books by this author, Audible.com doesn't have the next trilogy he wrote "The Nights Dawn - Trilogy" but its really good and Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained which Audible.com does have are simply amazing.

    If you liked the first book and want to see Greg, Julia, and friends tackle something else then this for you, as well as the next one

    Fun story and great reader. Would try either author or reader again. Stupid word minimum.

    I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.

    Story
    "Not as good as the first Greg Mandel Novel."

    I really like the first Greg Mandel book, Mindstar rising. This one I just sort of liked. I'm going to read other reviews to determine if I get the third. There are way too many good books out there to read/listen to before you read/listen to this one.

    "Little character development & predictable ending"

    The first Greg Mandel book was enjoyable. This second isn't nearly as interesting. As a mystery, it falls seriously short. It was obvious "who done it" early on, and then is was just a matter of plodding on through the book until the end. And the characters weren't nearly as interesting as in the first book. We didn't learn anything new about them at all. That's why for me it's only 3 stars.

    "Solid 4 star effort"

    While the first of the Greg Mandel stories was a little clunky, this book shows much of why I love Peter F. Hamilton's works. Characters are developed, plots move quickly but realistically and there's plenty to keep the reader's interest. Now I'm off to download part 3!
