The motivation of the mass-murderer--in this case a noted poet--becomes the subject of investigation by an ambitious policewoman, a renegade psychologist, and the murderer's closest friend. Twenty-first century Los Angeles provides the surrealistic setting for a remarkable exploration of human guilt and fears in the latest novel by the author of Blood Music and Eternity (LJ 10/15/88). Bear's blending of high-tech gloss with penetrating insights into human nature results in a complex and challenging speculative vision of the "country of the mind." Highly recommended.

I really liked this book. Unfortunately, I read it after reading Slant. If you can, read Queen of Angels first, followed by Slant, then Moving Mars. it'll make more sense.Published on March 4 2002 by Steve DeGroof
