What the Critics Say

"Defining Diana manages to feel true to both its hardboiled and its futuristic roots. The writing presents an interesting mash-up of pulp dialogue and well-researched scientific theory. The novel's characterizations of the SDU's troubled and conflicted officers is also top notch. Trenholm's solid police procedural, set in a cyberpunk Calgary, will appeal to mystery and science fiction fans alike." (Chadwick Ginter)

"Steel Whispers is an edge-of-your seat amalagam of police procedural and razor-sharp science fiction. The streets of Calgary never seemed so mean! Fans of Dashiell Hammett and William Gibson both will love this; a great novel from one of Canada's fastest-rising SF stars." (Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Wake)

"A taut, near-future police procedural with a plot as sinewy as that cyborg snake in Blade Runner. Hayden Trenholm works the mean streets and millionaires’ mansions of mid-21st century Calgary and comes up with a winner.” (Matthew Hughes, Author of the Tales of Henghis Hapthorn)

    "Hybrid"

    Defining Diana is a hybrid, a mixture of mystery and SciFi. The mixture is about 70% mystery and 30% SciFi. If you like these type hybrids, then this is a great book. It is set in the future where there are a mix of cyborgs and humans. However, the book spends most of its time working out the details of a mystery. If you like those type books, you will like this one; if you are looking for a SciFi book you may be disappointed.

    Story
    "Narrator was no good, story was really good"

    This book has a really bad narrator he just doesent do any different voices for each character they all sound exactly the same and maybe thats why the next 2 books have a different narrator, but the story is pretty good so if you can stick with it do so.

    This is the first book and there is some girl they cant identify who was found in a locked room alone and dead, Frank Steele is an old fashioned detective for the SDU which deals with cases no one else can solve or no one else wants to solve and things get more involved than he ever expected with strange murders and people that dont exist, it all goes pretty well and the next 2 books are just as good.

    This whole series of books is good and this one starts the story off with the story that will follow the rest of the 2 books, they are different stories each but have to be read in order, there is an ending to each book but you know there is more to it there could be more books I guess there could be more after the 3rd book but so far there arent more
