I don’t know about you, but I’m always annoyed by police detectives in SF novels who don’t behave at all like police detectives in real life. Anyway. Twin narratives of detective solving decades-old future crime and alien contact from Earth’s first colony ship, plus corruption and murder in high places. Kept me reading to the end, but it’s not very subtle. And did I mention that I found the police bit unrealistic?… (mais)

I have always liked police procedural stories set in the future. Wormhole by Eric Brown and Keith Brooke involves an 80-year-old murder case in which the main suspect, the victim’s wife, is believed to have died on humanity’s first interstellar mission. But when it is discovered that the starship has arrived at its destination and established a wormhole connection with the solar system that makes interstellar travel almost instantaneous, a weary London detective is sent through the wormhole to question the wife. Characters are a bit clichéd but nicely individualized. The plot has the twists one expects, and there is action in both star systems. Fun. 4 stars.… (mais)

Wormhole is a unique mash up of police procedural and hard sci fi. Cold case detective Gordon Kemp is assigned to investigate an 80-year-old mystery that leads him through wormholes, far worlds, and scientific exploration to find out what happened. Though at times I felt some plot items could have been elaborated on a bit more, this was a fun and entertaining read. Really hoping this author duo writes more in the future! Thank you to NetGalley for a chance to read and review this book! #Angryrobot #Wormhole… (mais)

Wormhole just maybe one of the best science fiction books I’ve read in a good while. A phenomenal melding of SF, crime, and politics, it made for one unforgettable read.

Gordon Kemp is a tired and frustrated detective in a future London, transferred from Homicide to work cold cases. He’s inextricably assigned to an eighty year old murder case, and is told to travel via a newly established wormhole and arrest Rima, who’s suspected of killing her husband just prior to leaving on a colony ship for a. new planet. Of course, all is not as it seems, and what follows is an entertaining and crazy adventure, full of twists and turns and surprises.

The world building of Wormhole was excellent. The characters are all well developed and the writing is outstanding. For a book that’s jointly written by two authors, the writing styles were seamless.

I just loved this book, and can’t recommend it enough!

My thanks to Angry Robot and to Netgalley for providing an ARC of this fabulous novel.
