Part three of the Greg Mandel series
Julia Evans, billionairess owner of Event Horizon, has for fifteen years been the power behind England's economic renaissance - but now she's in trouble. With her husband missing, and rivalcompanies 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...
Simply stunning! I was waiting for this one, and I was not disappointed in the least.
An avid 'fan' of nanotechnology and biotechnology, this story really captured me. It has all the elements that make for a 'brilliant' in my book: advanced datatech, neural enhancements and Direct Network Connection brain-to-system, virtual personalities, advanced weapons in the hands of mercenaries, nanotechnology, visitors from other civilasions, you name it. Packed from cover to cover with thrills and excitement.
Overall, this book, and the others in this series, join Peter's other works in my Most Honoured set of bookshelves.
