it was amazing
bookshelves: mystery-thriller, science-fantasy

Taken as a police procedural, this is a very well done mystery with strong characters and some nice elements of what I would call "paranoia thriller" (elements that I expect will be further developed in the next series entries).

But it is in the framing story of doom brought by a planet-killing asteroid, that this book really excels. Especially in the depiction of a world every so slowly giving up and shutting down.

This is first of a planned trilogy; I look forward to volumes two and three.
