The basic plot line seemed promising ... I enjoy near future sci fi and fantasy ... but the writing on this particular novel was badly in need of a good editor - the descriptions were way too wordy and predictable. At first I thought perhaps the writing just seemed horrible because the narration was so bad. But I'm afraid I couldn't tough it out beyond the first couple of chapters.
I've read that Carr's other books are good - after this one, however, I don't think I want to risk another one.

His best book by far. Great mystery and well written characters. Setting is well written.
