Staff Reviews

Special Circumstances agent Cheradenine Zakalwe is being sought out from hiding for one last job in the Culture’s unending quest to influence the galaxy to their own ends. Alternating timelines describe his idyllic childhood life on his home world, and the present-day race to find him and salvage the situation in a star system on the brink of chaos. Zakalwe’s clout with a prominent member of Voerenhutz society may be the only way to avert disaster without exposing the Culture’s interference. Both threads lead towards the same focal point: an event that emerges hazily and piecemeal from recollection as the defining moment in his life, the disaster that led him to leave everything behind and strike out into the unknown.
