Publisher's Summary

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.

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

    "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.

    "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!

    "Great Combo of Sci-fi Murders"

    Science fiction murder mystery makes a great combo when you have Peter F. Hamilton writing. "A Quantum Murder" is the second book in the Greg Mandel trilogy. I read the first book sometime last year and I have forgotten to continue on with the series. The first few chapters was confusing because I forgot all about the main character, who is a sci fi detective. There is less action in the second edition than in the first book, "Mindstar Rising."

    "A Quantum Murder" is better because Hamilton is known for his space opera. He goes more in depth into the high tech world and trying to solve the murder case. I need to write myself a reminder to finish the trilogy soon.

    "Worth It, But Not Great"

    It was interesting to see the future of the characters from the first novel. I personally didn't find murder mystery to be as compelling as the industrial espionage of the first book. In fact, nothing seemed to happen for most of the book. I enjoyed the book, but I don't know if I'd read it again.

    "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.

    "Where is Book One?"

    I love Peter Hamilton's books. I listen to them over and over; but why did Audible first post book three, then book two? I'm not going to start this series until they post book one.

    "Not for me"

    I have enjoyed PFH in the past but this story line/plot just did not work for me. It took forever to develop. the reader did an excellent job but overall i vote no.
