From the Philip K. Dick Award nominee author of Cowl, an adrenaline-powered new SF adventure: Brass Man. Neal Asher returns to his trademark Polity future setting, in a sequel to Gridlinked, which called "brilliant and audacious work, chock-full of cutting-edge ideas."
Ian Cormac, a legendary Earth Central Security agent, the James Bond of a wealthy future, is hunting an interstellar dragon, little knowing that, far away, his competition has resurrected an horrific killing machine named "Mr. Crane" to assist in a similar hunt, ecompassing whole star systems. Mr. Crane, the insane indestructible artificial man now in a new metal body, seeks to escape a bloody past he can neither forget nor truly remember. And he is on a collision course with Ian Cormac.

Review quote

"Asher has lit up the sky of Science Fiction like a new sun." --Tanith Lee

"Fizzing with intelligent ideas and occasionally streaked with black humor. Appalling, mind-boggling, fascinating--and irresistible." --Kirkus, starred review

"Asher's latest novel features fast-paced action, spy vs. spy intrigue, and the guilty pleasure of watching two exceptional and opposed individuals move inexorably toward an inevitable showdown." --Library Journal

"Neal Asher has always drummed up a healthy dose of space adventure and wicked fun in his novels and Brass Man maintains this reputation effortlessly." --Interzone

"Asher does time travel and he does it damn well, taking the reader on a journey that would make one hell of a theme park ride!"

"Time travel, ultraviolence, big dinosaurs--the perfect mind-blasting SF cocktail." --SFX magazine
