Broken Angels

by Richard Morgan
Release date: March 2003
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Sleeved in a damaged combat body, Takeshi Kovacs is serving as a mercenary in a brutal little Protectorate-sponsored war to put down the revolution on Sanction IV.

Taking the chance to join a covert team trying to secure an archaeological prize, Takeshi is dropped into a maelstrom of betrayal that makes the front-line a happy memory. For this is a prize whose value is limitless and whose dangers are endless. It's a prize the corporations will kill for. A prize that will take mankind to the brink.

BROKEN ANGELS rips apart the 26th century to lay bare the violence, the follies and the naked greed that leave man so ill-prepared for the legacy he has been given: the stars.

This is SF at its dizzying best: superb yet subtle world-building; strong yet sensitive characterisation; awesome yet believable technology; thrilling yet profound writing. Richard Morgan is set to join Science Fiction's world-wide elite.
