Queen of Angels

Front Cover
Gollancz, Nov 1, 2010 - Science fiction - 373 pages
33 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 . . .
