Description: Set in the same milieu as REVELATION SPACE, Alastair Reynolds takes the reader on another mind-bending ride through his wild universe. Tanner Mirabel was a security specialist who never made a mistake - until the day a young woman in his care was blown away during an attack by a vengeful young postmortal. Tanner's pursuit of the murderer takes him across the universe from his home planet of Sky's Edge to Chasm City, the domed human settlement on the inhospitable planet of Yellowstone. But Chasm City isn't what it was: the Melding Plague has turned it into a Gothic nightmare, the inhabitants as corrupted as the buildings and machinery. Before the chase is done, Tanner will have to confront disturbing truths which reach back centuries, towards deep space and an atrocity history barely remembers - but which has ramifications echoing down through the years.
