Synopsis

A Quantum Murder is the thrilling second book in Peter F. Hamilton's incredibly successful Greg Mandel series.

Dr Edward Kitchener was a brilliant researcher into quantum cosmology . . . but he’s found dead, lungs spread on either side of his open chest. His employers, Event Horizon, now want to know what happened – and fast.

Many were anxious to stop Kitchener's work, and could have paid an assassin’s fee. And only a mercenary could’ve breached Launde Abbey’s premier-grade security system. Yet why would a professional waste time ritually slaughtering the target?

Greg Mandel, psi-boosted ex-private eye, is enticed out of retirement to track the killer. He launches himself on a convoluted trail which will mean confronting the past. But – according to Kitchener's theories – this past might never have happened.

A genuine unalloyed pleasure: I really cannot recommend this too highly, apart from dragging you out into the bookshops and sticking it under your nose

Ian McDonald

Thoroughly engrossing . . . immensely satisfying. An excellent book. One that engages the intellect as well as the emotions. A tale that drags the reader on a corkscrew rollercoaster ride of dazzling imagination and electrifying excitement
