Publisher's Summary

A diamond-hard, visionary new SF thriller. Nailed-down cyberpunk a la William Gibson for the 21st century meets the vivid dark futures of Al Reynolds in this extraordinary debut novel.
With Earth abandoned, humanity resides on Station, an industrialised asteroid run by the sentient corporations of the Pantheon. Under their leadership a war has been raging against the Totality - ex-Pantheon AIs gone rogue.
With the war over, Jack Forster and his sidekick, Hugo Fist, a virtual puppet tied to Jack's mind and created to destroy the Totality, have returned home.
Labelled a traitor for surrendering to the Totality, all Jack wants is to clear his name, but when he discovers two old friends have died under suspicious circumstances he also wants answers. Soon he and Fist are embroiled in a conspiracy that threatens not only their future but all of humanity's.
But with Fist's software licence about to expire, taking Jack's life with it, can they bring down the real traitors before their time runs out?

Interesting Story

Crashing Heaven is certainly a unique sci-fi with its setting and the events which unfold throughout. it is eloquently written and certainly enthralling.

Utterly brilliant

The story was incredible and fresh, the performance excellent... I really hope Al Robertson writes a lot more SF.

The one negative, not to do with the story or performance, is the editing of the audiobook. Particularly in the first few parts, there are multiple takes of the same passage. This should be fixed.
