Format: Paperback
Necropath is Eric Brown's new SF novel from Solaris Books, billed as his triumphant return to hard SF. I'm not sure how to take that, but regardless of the sub-genre of his last book (Kethani), Necropath is certainly triumphant and well worth investing your time in!

Jeff Vaughan is a telepath working for a security company in Bengal Station, an interstellar port based near India and Thailand. A man with a dark and disturbing past, he thinks very little of his fellow humans due to his ability to read minds.

His work on the station has lead him to suspect his boss, Weiss, of importing something that he wants nobody to know of. Being transferred when certain ships land have raised his suspicions about this, and with the help of a contact in the station police force, Chandra, he puts an investigation into action that will reveal some terrible things.

Tiger, one of Vaughan's only friends - if you could even call her that - has overdosed on a new and mysterious drug: Rhapsody. Looking further into the source of this he stumbles upon a larger, more sinister plan by the Church of the Adoration of the Chosen One, a cult originating from another world and slowly planning their conversion of Earth with promises of paradise and euphoria.

With connections deepening and time running out, Vaughan and Chandra travel off planet in the hope of solving the increasing questions that are coming up wherever they turn. But this is not the only problem facing Vaughan - a figure from the past he tries to ignore is tracking him and won't be giving up easily. With all the events coming to a head, will Vaughan discover the secrets that are being kept from him? And will we discover his?

Set in an arcology in India, a telepath reads the minds of the recently dead to discover why people are dying and an off world cult is growing in power. The feel of near future india permeates the book. The book creates a compelling vision of corrupt, poverty stricken future india where people are used and chewed up. The main character isnt nearly as intersting as the orphans and human detritus who are the victims of human progress. The setting is excellent , the feel of a desperately cramped India, hot sweaty and full of the poor and trampled. The orphan secondary characters evoked images of Kiplings beggar children.

Its a near cyberpunky setting without the cyber and with lite psi thrown in. Necropathy, the reading of the minds of the dead is an interestigly original riff. The setting is rich and it reads a little like a detective novel. The climax is a little pedestian, but its an easy read.
I wouldnt categorise it as Hard sf. Its a little like much of the 60's sf with a modern veneer of desperation and poverty laid over it.

The book reads well and is easy to follow. But fails to stay interesting and make you feel sympathetic to the characters or even draw you into the world, which lacks depth and vivid description.
Best skipping this book and just read the 2nd and 3rd; your certainly not missing anything here.
