Publisher's Summary

Sable Keech is a walking dead man. Was he resurrected because he was infected by the Spatterjay virus, or it took place late in a tank of seawater? Taylor Bloc wants to know the truth. He also wants more - adulation, power, control - and will go to any lengths to achieve them.
An ancient hive mind has sent an agent to this uncertain world. Does it merely want to obtain the poison 'sprine' that is crucial to immortality? Erlin, still faced with the ennui of immortality, is interrupted by an angry whelkus titanicus, and begins a strange journey.
Deep in the ocean the Spatterjay virus has wrought a terrible change that will affect them all. Something long-dormant is breaking free. And Sniper, its Warden, finally receives his new drone shell. It's better than his old one: powerful engines, more lethal weapons, thicker armour. He's going to need them.

More classic Asher goodness

Was a great continuation of the original story - set 10 years after the Skinner - with the right amount of change to Spatterjay life to make it a plausible return Oceanside to the planet.

Hooper humour was there as always a long with many familiar faces. Apart from one obvious twist the story weaves its way to a big finish once again, couldn't stop listening as I reached the finish.

I don't know if it could be considered as good without having first read The Skinner but who apart from a corrupted war drone would consider reading book 2 first !

Already bought book 3 which is the best compliment I can give it.

Since my trip to the little Flint am definitely now a fully reincarnated Asher fan !!!
