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.
Following on from The Reality Dysfunction, The Neutronium Alchemist is the second epic novel in the Night''s Dawn trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton.
A seemingly unstoppable force has entered our universe, and we are confronted by our most primal fear. Those who have succumbed to its horror have acquired godlike powers. Yet their actions are far from divine as they advance from planet to planet, leaving slaughter and mayhem in their wake. The Confederation Navy is dangerously overstretched, as whole worlds fracture and collapse. And a dark messiah prepares to invoke his own version of the final night.
In such desperate times, a powerful new weapon could cause yet more terror, but Dr Alkad Mzu is determined to retrieve the Alchemist - and complete her thirty-year-old mission to slay a star. However, others have their own ideas on how to use this ultimate doomsday device.
The Neutronium Alchemist is followed by The Naked God.

If this mysterious and powerful entity truly exists, we may be able to find it. And if it really can avert the ultimate catastrophe, we may at last find hope. Joshua Clavert and Syrinx now fly their starships on a mission to find the Sleeping God - which an alien race believes holds the key to finally overthrowing the possessed.

When images of a lost civilization are ''dreamed'' by a self-proclaimed prophet of the age, Nigel Sheldon, inventor of wormhole technology and creator of the Commonwealth society, is asked to investigate.

With it being the greatest threat to the known universe, Nigel is committed to finding out what really lies within the Void and if there''s any truth to the visions they''ve received. Does human life really exist inside its boundary? But when Nigel crash-lands inside the Void, on a planet he didn''t even know existed, he finds so much more than he expected. Bienvenido: a world populated by the ancestors of survivors from Commonwealth colony ships that disappeared centuries ago.
