January Books 30) The Art of Death, by James Goss

I fear it must be getting a bit dull for my regular reader when I keep on praising James Goss's Doctor Who and Torchwood writing. (Unless my regular reader is James Goss, of course, in which case I imagine he approves.) But this audiobook is another winner, with the excellent Raquel Cassidy (who played Matt Smith's boss in Party Animals and the leader of both the Gangers and their human antagonists in The Rebel Flesh / The Almost People) telling the story in first person: she is art gallery custodian Penelope, showing off the indescribable Paradox to the masses, and developing a peculiar relationship both with it and with the three strange travellers who turn up at different times. I felt it borrowed a bit from Dan Simmons' Hyperion but perhaps did it better. Strongly recommended.
