Blue Tyson - Terry Dowling

The second book of the Rynosseros Cycle is just about as good as the first, but as a bonus, it is a little longer, with 10 parts rather than 8. That is a fine thing. A veteran of the scene now, Tom Tyson works to find out what is going on, for Nation, and for justice, and starts to get an idea of who he is and why he is haldane sensitive, in 'Breaking Through to the Heroes', and ends with him gaining more insight in 'Totem'. Just more brilliant stuff, really.
