Frank asked:

I have read the three Greg Mandel novels (i.e. Mindstar Rising, A Quantum Murder and The Nano Flower), but have never heard that there were be any other books in this series. Then I saw this which has no description except for "book 2.5" and no reviews. Can anyone tell what it is about and how it fits in with the other novels?

Julie T. Here's a description from Amazon:
A short story featuring Greg Mandel, originally appeared in a limited edition of Mindstar Rising. Richard Townsend would proudly call himself a man of business as he secures a lucrative, though not entirely legal, financial deal. What he believes to be easy money turns his life into a nightmare when detective Amanda Patterson knocks to his door to arrest him under suspicion of murdering the local celebrity, Byrne Tayler.
On the surface, all the clues seem to point to Richard. But Richard professes his innocence. Desperate to find out the truth, and driven by her remarkable instinct, Amanda seeks advice from an ex-Mindstar Brigade soldier Greg Mendel, in the hope that Greg's enhanced psychic abilities will help to reveal the truth about what really happened.
