February Books 20) Spin State

20) Spin State, by Chris Moriarty (.co.uk, .com)

This had been on my shelf for a couple of years, and I finally picked it up because the sequel is on my current reading list. I wish I'd got to it sooner. This is a very tightly woven and tightly written tale of artificial intelligence, activist miners, murder and identity. Catherine Li, sent unwillingly to her home planet to investigate the mysterious death of a famous scientist, is a memorable heroine. Also features embittered Irish militants, mourning the fact that their native land is now covered in glaciers. Recommended.
