Tanner Mirabel was a security specialist who never made a mistake - until the day a woman in his care was blown away by Argent Reivich, a vengeful young postmortal. Tanner's pursuit of Reivich takes him across light-years of space to Chasm City, the domed human settlement on the otherwise inhospitable planet of Yellowstone. But Chasm City is not what it was. The one-time high-tech utopia has become a Gothic nightmare: a nanotechnological virus has corrupted the city's inhabitants as thoroughly as it has the buildings and machines. Before the chase is done, Tanner will have to confront truths which reach back centuries, towards deep space and an atrocity history barely remembers.

A little too dependent on the helpful stranger, but overall an enjoyable read. Oh, and more aliens should call their spaceships void warrens.I think this book should be read before Redemption Ark, even though it's considered standalone. It could even be read before Revelation Space.

4.0 Chasm City (Revelation Space)
A good story, even if it didn't fit into the Revelation Space story line. It kept my interest to the end. That is good enough. But not great.

I can feel this story percolating in my head, my final opinion coming together like puzzle pieces as time goes on. I think I like it more having read it than I did in the process of reading it, primarily because that feeling of confusion (purposefully induced by the author) during reveals is so unco...
