The Mandel Files Volume 1 - Peter F. Hamilton

Psychic corporate sleuthing. Greg Mandel is literally a psychic detective, an ability given to him via technology and a stint in the military. So not a psychic detective in the ghost busting sense, at all. This very nasty far left government has since collapsed, leaving old pommieland in a semi-parlous rebuilding situation. Mandel is hired to look into both thefts, and attacks on a digital personality, via that personalities granddaughter. 4 out of 5 Chest mangled cosmologist investigation. The growing corporate power Event Horizon is again involved here, as one of its star researchers is found dead, and mutilated to go along with it, which seems rather strange. A job for psi-cop Greg Mandel, who had happily been minding his own business but is talked into taking on this case. Plenty of people wanted this work stopped, too, so he will be one busy investigator. Just as good as the last book. 4 out of 5 4.5 out of 5
