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?Read more ›
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.
Best skipping this book and just read the 2nd and 3rd; your certainly not missing anything here.

I have to admit I probably wouldn't have completed this book if I hadn't read episodes 2 or 3 already, which are both much better reads. Read morePublished on 3 July 2010 by Tallyman
