Review: The Nano Flower (Greg Mandel #3)

User Review  - William - Goodreads

This is another fine Greg Mandel sci-fi mystery, with many the familiar and loved cast of characters of the first two books. The Nano Flower is creative and clever often, but truly a pre-cursor to the wonderful work of Pandora's Star and the subsequent books of the Commonwealth Universe. Read full review
