A Quantum Murder is the thrilling second book in Peter F. Hamilton's incredibly successful Greg Mandel series. Dr Edward Kitchener was a brilliant researcher into quantum cosmology . . . but he’s found dead, lungs spread on either side of his open chest. His employers, Event Horizon, now want to know what happened – and fast. Many were anxious to stop Kitchener's work, and could have paid an assassin’s fee. And only a mercenary could’ve breached Launde Abbey’s premier-grade security system. Yet why would a professional waste time ritually slaughtering the target? Greg Mandel, psi-boosted ex-private eye, is enticed out of retirement to track the killer. He launches himself on a convoluted trail which will mean confronting the past. But – according to Kitchener's theories – this past might never have happened. A Quantum Murder is followed by The Nano Flower to complete the Greg Mandel trilogy.

ST LIBRA IS A PARADISE FOR EARTH'S MEGA-RICH, UNTIL THE KILLING BEGINS. When attending a Newcastle murder scene, Detective Sidney Hurst finds a dead North family clone. Yet none have been reported missing. And in 2122, twenty years ago, a North clone billionaire was horrifically murdered in the same manner on the tropical planet of St Libra. So, if the murderer is still at large, was Angela Tramelo wrongly convicted? She never wavered under interrogation, claiming she alone survived an alien attack. Investigating this potential alien threat now becomes the Human Defence Agency's top priority. St Libran bio-fuel is the lifeblood of Earth's economy and must be secured. A vast expedition is mounted via the Newcastle gateway, and experts are dispatched to the planet - with Angela Tramelo, grudgingly released from prison. But the expedition is cut off deep within St Libra's rainforests, and the murders begin. Angela insists it's the alien, but her new colleagues aren't sure. Did she see an alien, or does she have other reasons for being on St Libra?

Twenty years later, he's the sergeant of a washed-out platoon taking part in the bungled invasion of another world.

Its priests are said to guard treasure large enough to buy lifelong happiness for any man, prompting him to mount an enterprise of his own... PRAISE FOR PETER F.
