    Occurring in a near future, taking the idea that the events of 9

    Occurring in a near future, taking the idea that the events of 9/11 were the opening salvos of a world-wide war divided by lines of faith, this paints a pretty bleak picture where the people that still have a religion are driven to extremes in their needs to justify their faith. Basically starts off with the idea of “If this goes on, where will it lead?” All someone has to do is take a look at the news to see how politics is decided more along the lines of greed or faith rather than logic and the common good to make some logical guesses as to how far this could go. The “god botherers” (as they are termed in this book) have mostly gone into exile away from their home countries; the “problem” in the middle-east has been “resolved”. Add in Artificial Intelligence (quite by accident), the murder of a priest and a bishop, terrorism planned by religious extremists (who just happen to be A.I. robots that have caught the religious fanaticism bug) a trans-gender police officer, a were-wolf faith war veteran (now police officer) a very popular night club D.J., some very believable advances in technology (the pillars concept was used in a tale by Charles Sheffield), murder and a well done police detective story. Not just straight science-fiction, but there is enough of that to keep me happy, not just a detective tale (see previous note). I am starting to think that Ken Macleod is trying to keep his books form being easily classified. Or, just maybe, he likes to keep trying to expand his field. Either way, it works for him. © Night Owl Reviews
