I loved the initial Revelation Space books but had them filed under “gothic space opera,” so I wasn’t sure The Prefect–a detective story set in the pre-plague Glitter Band–would do it for me. Really enjoying it. Even though Chasm City was pretty street-level, its post-plague setting (and three nested plots) kept it from the sort of fine strokes Reynolds manages here. Nice addition to the RS world.
