Donal Riordan is a Lieutenant in the Tristopolis police, assigned to protect a visiting opera diva. he fails.

the blurb calls it "an extraordinary melding of visionary SF and dark horror". i'd add a large dash of steampunk and a simple murder-mystery-conspiracy plot.

i really fell for this book, and i seriously hope John Meany continues to write Tristopolis books - i really liked his characters, i loved his world (of airplanes, and phones which use gears, wraiths and zombies, good cops and evil mages, Bone Listeners, purple skies and quicksilver rain). the plot had enough substance and twists to keep me guessing, and enough mystery that i found myself 'filling gaps'.

an engaging interesting read.
