Bookworming: This Alien Shore

This Alien Shore, C. S. Friedman, ****
A mix of cyberpunk and space opera, This Alien Shore is a magnificent example of world building around a central chase plot-line. Standout elements include human mutations in place of aliens and the plausible hatreds and motivations that brings, a unique and sympathetic main character, and a well drawn high-tech setting full of political machinations. Throw in a nice job of building the suspense at it goes, and for my money you get a quite enjoyable read.
