Frey is the captain of the Ketty Jay, leader of a small and highly dysfunctional band of layabouts. An inveterate womaniser and rogue, he and his gang make a living on the wrong side of the law, avoiding the heavily armed flying frigates of the Coalition Navy. With their trio of ragged fighter craft, they run contraband, rob airships and generally make a nuisance of themselves.

So a hot tip on a cargo freighter loaded with valuables seems like a great prospect for an easy heist and a fast buck. Until the heist goes wrong, and the freighter explodes. Suddenly Frey isn't just a nuisance anymore - he's public enemy number one, with the Coalition Navy on his tail and contractors hired to take him down.

But Frey knows something they don't. That freighter was rigged to blow, and Frey has been framed to take the fall. If he wants to prove it, he's going to have to catch the real culprit. He must face liars and lovers, dogfights and gunfights, Dukes and daemons.

It's going to take all his criminal talents to prove he's not the criminal they think he is ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark and twisted = Absorbing This book was excellent. It brought me into a world that was unlike any I have ever entered. I am loving these fusions of science fiction and fantasy that have been coming out recently. The characters were truly well done. None of them were good and all of them were bad. I love a book with a protagonist whose got a boatload of problems and is really hard to love, let alone like. The writing is engrossing, the plot twisted and filled with all sort of subplots, and the world filled with so many opportunities for more stories. I have such respect for an author who can create legends, mythology and religion for a whole world and resist putting it all in. Who can manage to keep some back to leave the reading wondering and wanting more. I've heard there is a sequel coming out soon and when it does arrive it'll be on my shelf first.

Editorial Reviews

RETRIBUTION FALLS is the kind of old fashioned adventure I didn't think we were allowed to write any more, of freebooting privateers making their haphazard underhand way in a wondrous retro-future world. But Chris has dusted off the format and given it a sharp modern edge that makes for a fast, exhilarating read-Peter F. Hamilton
