Panoply is a small, efficient police force, dedicated to maintaining the rule of democracy among the ten thousand disparate city-states orbiting the planet Yellowstone.
Ingvar Tench was one of Panoply's most experienced operatives. So why did she walk alone and unarmed into a habitat with a vicious grudge against her organization?
As his colleagues pick up the pieces following her death, Prefect Tom Dreyfus must face his conscience. Four years ago, when an investigation linked to one of his most dangerous adversaries got a little too personal, Dreyfus arranged for Tench to continue the inquiry by proxy. In using her, did Dreyfus also put her in the line of fire? And what does Tench's attack tell him about an enemy he had hoped was dormant?
The Prefect Dreyfus Emergencies
Praise for the Prefect Dreyfus series:
"This novel's ideas are mind-stretching, including a limbo where copies of the dead can be kept and interrogated, and a chillingly mischievous AI that tempts and mocks Dreyfus. The big concepts and complex story effectively pull readers into intriguing speculation about human identity and potential." ―Publishers Weekly on Elysium Fire
"Reynolds combines depth in characterization and dazzling hard-science applications to keep the reader turning pages." ―Booklist on Elysium Fire
"Elysium Fire is a tremendously assured read, a fast-paced page-turner that delivers a well thought out story and characters you'll come to care about." ―The Guardian (UK)
"An adroit and fast-paced blend of space opera and police procedural, original and exciting." ―George R. R. Martin on Aurora Rising
"This is solid British SF adventure, evoking echoes of le Carre and Sayers with a liberal dash of Doctor Who." ―Publishers Weekly on Aurora Rising
"Absorbing...gripping in the extreme...A fine provocative portrait of utopia on the brink. The relentless narrative momentum it employs simply underscores the pertinent urgency of that topic. The resulting mixture of space opera and police procedure is sublime entertainment." ―Locus on Aurora Rising
