Praise for The Prefect "This is solid British SF adventure, evoking echoes of le Carre and Sayers with a liberal dash of Doctor Who."--Publishers Weekly "Absorbing...gripping in the extreme...A fine provocative portrait of utopia on the brink. The relentless narrative momentum it employs simply underscores the pertinent urgency of that topic. The resulting mixture of space opera and police procedure is sublime entertainment."--Locus "A well-constructed amalgam of detective fiction, hard-SF and space opera."--Andromeda Spaceways "A great book and a worthy addition to the world of Revelation Space."--Sci Fi Book Spot "[A] magnificently imagined world."--Booklist "Alastair Reynolds has developed real skill in mixing a detective investigation mystery with a background that is as thoroughly hard science as anybody's...Eminently satisfying."--SF Site
