Queen of Angels

Front Cover
Gollancz, Nov 1, 2010 - Science fiction - 373 pages
21 Reviews

In a perfect future a famous poet commits terrible murder. WHY?

That crime and that question lead a biotransformed policewoman to a jungle of torture and forgotten gods; a writer to the Bohemian shadows of a vast city; and a scientist directly into the mind - into the nightmare soul - of the psychopath himself.

This is science fiction at its best: a detective story, a story of virtual reality entrapments and the coming to consciousness of an Artificial Intelligence . . .

User Review  - Brian Smith - Goodreads

Utterly incredible novel! Greg Bear's Anvil of the Stars and EON are two of my favorite novels, and this one is definitely added to the list. Engaging characters, and wildly imaginative, this book is a must-read for sci-fi fans. Read full review

About the author (2010)

Greg Bear is one of the great figures of contemporary SF. Winner of both the HUGO and the NEBULA AWARDS, his classic novel EON (part of the Masterworks list) was one of the high concept, grand scale SF novels that reinvented the genre in the 1980s. His novel BLOOD MUSIC is a uniquely uplifting apocalyptic novel about evolution overtaking humanity. He lives in the USA.
