5.0 out of 5 stars One of Hamilton's Best, 7 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Nano Flower (Greg Mandel Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Hamilton as most who read science fiction know is one of the best writers in the field. His stories are always character dense, with often complicated plots and usually an ending that you don't see coming.

The Greg Mandel series of books are a mix of detective, military and corporate money set in a near future where global warming has changed the landscape of the UK. Peterborough is now the center of the UK money and manufacturing (Hamilton must have a sense of humour) and the UK is on the up after years of political upheaval and impact from the rising seas. Hamilton has not done the end of world background, by the way. He has taken an optomistic view and humans have coped and are once again using inginuity to expand.

Greg Mandel is an ex military mind reader - of sorts - in semi retirement, who has been asked to deal with a potentially world changing problem. Using a mix of action and detective skills he brings the various threads together with the usual explosive ending.

Well written, taut and convoluted. An excellent science fiction detective story written by an author at the top of his game.
