Chaz Koto is a citizen of Xanadu, a near future perfect society hosting the wealthiest men and women on Earth. Along with his fellow citizens, he bears the burden of a dark secret that the outside world would be shocked to hear.

Lenore Myles is a student who travels to Xanadu and becomes involved with Koto. When Koto unwittingly lends her his access codes, Lenore stumbles upon the grisly truth behind Xanadu's glittering facade.

Lenore is soon on the run, hunted down by Saturn, a mysterious entity that moves aggressively to contain the security breach. With the interests of the world's wealthiest people at stake and powerful technology at Saturn's fingertips, Lenore is in a race for her life against a truly formidable foe.

    " R. and I both read and were intrigued, thrilled, etc. - Saturn is not the planet; it's near-future and technological, not space opera. Recommended. "

    " I am glad I only paid about 50 cents from this book at a book sale. I didn't enjoy it at all. It was slow at times, hard to keep track of characters and it just didn't appeal to me. I don't know why I decided to keep on reading it until I finished. "

    " the writing is uneven, and the plot is plodding. some nice ideas get it up to 2 stars. "

    " I kept wanting to say to the wonderful characters..." No! No! Don't go there!", but they did anyway. A thouroughly engaging story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ratiocination | 9/8/2012

    " Not my favorite Niven, nor even my favorite Niven-Barnes collaboration. The premise is cool, but the story doesn't really click, and feels hurried towards the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neb | 8/13/2012

    " Interesting, slightly cyber-punk tale of the not-so-distant future where human-machine interfacing is possible...for the very rich. Nice elitist scientist Utopian intrigue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Holcomb | 3/4/2011

    " Heavy tech knowledge about genetics and computers to wade thru. Decent story but not the best from Niven i have read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 2/19/2011

    " I found this somewhat boring. It's a near-future sci-fi about cybernetically-enhanced people. I guess it's also a mystery of sorts, but I found it hard to care about the people, which made the mystery less compelling. Yawn. "

    " Verry Good for the Occupy Wallstreet group, a continuation of the old adage absolute power corrupts absolutly. I liked it "

    " Acceptable brain candy sort of book. "

    " Pacing was a bit slower than Achilles Choice, but once the story fully developed it moved along rather quickly.

    As someone who loves speculative fiction as well as pre- and post-apocalyptic stuff, I give this one a big thumbs up. "
