If you have read more than one of Modesitt's science fiction novels then you could almost predict his hero. Intelligent and much more perceptive than most of those around him, physically active and with combat skills. This time he isn't a pilot or ex-pilot but given that the story mainly takes place on one planet and with little flying that doesn't matter. This is a typical book in other ways, a complicated series of events are happening and it is up to us the reader as well as the protagonist to pick up the clues that are hidden throughout the book and solve the issue of what is going on before disaster occurs.

It is hard to really like the protagonist and aspects of his character don't always ring true e.g. if he is so perceptive then how comes he and his wife were divorced in the manner it happened. This isn't one of his truly classic books but it is still much better than many of the other science fiction books written as it requires an intelligent reader to appreciate it.

The author is rather PC but fortunately too good a writer to inflict lectures on us except on one page. It's fairly involving SF ... a one-off novel. The hero is an professional ecologist, which made me wary, but in fact the frame is a rational one on a fragile world, rather than an excuse for politics. Note that this is a full length novel. A short story by the same author is appended, also interesting.

I always enjoy L E Modesitt's stories and The One Eyed Man was no exception.
Just wish that it had been a usual full length book rather than a short novelette.

Another good techno story well worth reading but maybe not the best story to begin reading this authors work. I have been reading his books since the 80's starting with Hammer of Darkness and he is one of my favourite authors.

Disaponting book by L. E. Modesitt jr not at the same top level as other books from him. (As "Imager Portfolio" or "Saga of Recluse").

Book ordered as agift for reader of this author but had not appreciated that the author writes in several genres and the recipient was not a fan of this particular genre - rather he prefers the sagas - book unread
