A great big sprawling enjoyable science fiction read. Does what it says on the tin. I finally closed it with a sense of satisfaction
Complex world-building, harrowing back-story and good payoffs
The author controls a cast numbering more than fifty, multiple complex plot lines, speculation on the science of wormhole technology and cloning, and arrives at a dénouement that is far more than just the resolution of a murder mystery
Hamilton’s latest standalone tale is a whopper
