Julia Evans, billionairess owner of Event Horizon, has for 15 years been the power behind England’s economic renaissance – but now she’s in trouble. With her husband missing, and rival companies suddenly claiming to have acquired a technology impossibly superior to anything on Earth, she has no time to take notice of a single flower delivered anonymously. But this flower possesses genes millions of years in advance of any terrestrial DNA. Is it a cryptic alien message, or a poignant farewell token from her husband?
One man might discover its origin – but Greg Mandel will not be alone in his desperate search. And, as they both now discover, simply being first in the race isn’t nearly good enough when the Nano Flower begins to bloom.

Yes, I wouldn't have the patience to read soft sci-fi but can listen to it whilst doing other things
Greg has to be my favorite - what a hero!
I liked the first book in the series so much that I'v enow listened to all three. The first book was far better for me (5 stars) than the others, but the whole package was an enjoyable foray into a genre I don't always enjoy
I enjoy good sci-fi and fantasy books. I also enjoy listening to Mysteries and Business marketing.
This among the top 15% of the 100s of books I have listened to so far. It offers all that I want and expect from current science fiction.
I started this series on this book. But it can stand alone. This author creates a future that seems very possible. The action is fun and exciting too. I am going to try to the prequels too. The technology and the terminology of the possible future.
The performance is excellent. Toby brings it to life.
See what's a tech merch and a hard liner.
I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
The first book in this series I enjoyed. Book 2 and 3 were good, but not as good, and there's no real reason to read the final two books. Read some of his more recent books, they're better.
This is the best of the trilogy. Hamilton has created an interesting, exciting, and engaging SciFi book; Longworth does a magnificent job of presenting it. I found the other books in the Mandel series sort of mundane but this one is very well done.
"great chemistry...writer & narrator"
I loved it, good story that finishes of a great mini series well, I love the attention to detail and if i have any complaint its the lack of a good " proof reader" no one listened to the small background noises that slipped into the reading.
"Quite the finale"
Again another great book. It nicely capped off the end of the whole story. Well told, but as mentioned by another user, some of the editing (page turning etc) is a little off here and there. Altogether excellent.
Great listen - what an imagination Peter Hamilton has. Kept me gripped and left me feeling bereaved that I wasn't going spend any more time with the characters.
