Featuring Inspector Dreyfus - one of Alastair Reynolds most popular characters - this is a fast paced SF crime story, combining a futuristic setting with a gripping tale of technology, revolution and revenge.

One citizen died a fortnight ago. Two a week ago. Four died yesterday . . . and unless the cause can be found - and stopped - within the next four months, everyone will be dead. For the Prefects, the hunt for a silent, hidden killer is on . . .

Alastair Reynolds has returned to the world of The Prefect for this stand-alone SF mystery in which no one is safe. The technological implants which connect every citizen to each other have become murder weapons, and no one knows who or what the killer is - or who the next targets will be. But their reach is spreading, and time is not on the Prefects' side.

MEDIA REVIEWS
a novel that works brilliantly as a space adventure and also reads, touchingly, almost as an atheist's reflection on why a kind of optimistic agnosticism may be a useful approach to finding contentment * SFX *
A tremendously assured read, a fast-paced page-turner that delivers a well thought out story. * GUARDIAN *
An utterly involving thriller, with a mystery that unfolds under steely control. * DAILY MAIL *
It's grand, involving and full of light and wonder. Poseidon's Wake is one of the best sci-fi novels of the year * Sci-Fi Now *
his finest moment yet and a glorious conclusion of the trilogy. A wonderful book and best that British SF has to offer at the moment * Upcoming 4 Me *
Reynolds has not only rise to the challenge, but upped the ante. * SFX *
Although a long book, with so much story to fit in there is a brevity to the text which makes it an easy read which can be enjoyed as a standalone even though it satisfactorily revisits and resolves the majority of the threads from the previous novels * Geek Chocolate *
Intriguing speculation about human identity and potential. * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY *
Possibly the best space opera I've read. * SF REVU *
a well realised sci-fi universe, with plausible character * SF&F Reviews *
Having completed the trilogy I now want to return to its beginning and re-read. Alastair Reynolds is one of my very favourite authors, every book is a much-anticipated event, and withPoseidon's Wake he shows yet again why that is. I loved every single page. * For Winter's Nights *
Reynolds combines depth in characterization and dazzling hard-science applications to keep the reader turning pages. * BOOKLIST *
Transhumans, talking elephants, inscrutable aliens and good old fashioned spaceship fights all contribute to a breathtaking adventure * THE SUN *
A vivid universe with beautiful settings and engaging, dynamic characters ...Fans of sf will definitely want to pick up this title, especially if they also enjoy mysteries or police procedurals. * LIBRARY JOURNAL *
A revelation that satisfies the demands of SF and mystery. * LOCUS *
If you're looking for a cracking sci-fi mystery, pick this one up. * SF AND F REVIEWS *
Incredible story telling and all plaudits are greatly deserved. * GEEK SYNDICATE *
Cerebral but gripping, Elysium Fire is a must for Reynolds fans and a recommended read. * SCIFINOW *
A well-paced, complex story replete with intrigue, invention and an optimism uncommon in contemporary SF * The Guardian *
