    Description

    A Warhammer Crime novel.

    An investigation into a missing member of a wealthy family leads Probator Agusto Zidarov into a web of lies and danger amidst the criminal cartels of Varangantua. As the net closes in, Zidarov falls further into darkness from which he may never return.... 

    Listen to it because: take a step into the murky underworld of the 41st Millennium through the eyes of a lawman in a gargantuan city whose investigation leads him into darkness and danger.  

    The story: in the immense city of Varangantua, life is cheap, but mistakes are expensive. When Probator Agusto Zidarov of the city’s enforcers is charged with locating the missing scion of a wealthy family, he knows full well that the chances of finding him alive are slight. The people demanding answers, though, are powerful and ruthless, and he is soon immersed in a world of criminal cartels and corporate warfare where even an enforcer’s survival is far from guaranteed. As he follows the evidence deeper into the city’s dark underbelly, he discovers secrets that have been kept hidden by powerful hands. As the net closes in on both him and his quarry, he is forced to confront just what measures some people are willing to take in order to stay alive.... 

    Written by Chris Wraight. Narrated by Charles Armstrong.

    Wonderful start to Warhammer Crime, but....

    I very much so enjoyed a look into the life of not only one of the Arbitrators of a Hive world, but more so a look at the life of an Imperial citizen.

    However, the one issue I had with the book was not from the actual story or even the narrator, but rather Games Workshop's horrific editing, or rather lack there of. 3-4 distinct times the bloopers/first readings of a line were left in. This happened in the 3rd installment of Ciaphis Cain, and now here. It is rather unexcusable from a publisher like The Black Library, especially with a catalog as vast as theirs.

    Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoy this story, and would be quite pleased even for a follow up that features some of the same characters.

    Noirhammer

    You don't need to know much about Warhammer 40k to enjoy this book. If you're a 40k fan, then some of the things that are happening in the background will give you a reference for when this takes place and what the galaxy is going through, but it's not required. It's a well written crime drama/mystery with a down to earth (so to speak) protagonist. The narrator does a great job, not much more to say, but given warhammer's usual narrators, he had a high standard to live up to. I had occasion to listen to this in one long session and did not once feel the urge to stop and listen to something else. I could easily see myself going "just one more chapter" with a hard copy version until what do you know, I finished it and it's 3am.

    Absolutely inspired!

    The word dystopian is often over used in this genre. However, Chris Wraight’s treatment of the subject matter is entirely relatable and therefore entirely dark and gritty In a way that hits home. Dr. Wraight has recently become one of my favorite Black Library authors. His treatment of the cosmos is always deep, provocative, and more often than not serves as an analog to the world we live in.

    Blade runner meets 40k

    A very enjoyable mix between the universe of 40k, trade dynasties with solid undertones of blade runner.
    The main character is a good mix of light and dark and although the book could have been a little more edgy the theme of illegal youth harvesting was very nasty indeed

    Boring & in name only is it related to 40k

    As a police procedural, it to fails so very badly. No action, no intrigue, nothing to hook ya.
    The *hero* is a schlub who's aging, overweight & nothing special at his job. Not even an overly likeable nor relatable hero. Just a basic, no frills character.
    What little action there is is far between & ho-hum, at best.
    It's got very lil to do with Warhammer/40k. If it didn't say *Warhammer* on it you might never know!
    Abnetts Eisenhorn & Ravenor & even some of his Gaunts Ghost investigations, mysteries are 40k times better.
    Don't waste your time or money.

    Starts out slow, but really picks up at 50% point

    What is it like to be a police detective in the 40k version? Pretty damn shit!
    Quit interesting to see the world from the view of the lowly citizen, instead of the high and might inqisitorial agents, underhive ganger, or though the terrors of a war.

    The first few chapters it seems like any other dystopia, which had me a bit dissapointed, but at around the half way point more and more 40k ideas started inserting themselvs, and in some intriquing ways too
    So i ended up really liking the while thing, and would recommend it to anyone who could be interested
    P. S. Its so damn nice to see that characters talk about the Imperial Guard again instead of the ridiculous Astra Militarum which GW tried to rebrand them as

    Pretty Good

    Standard cop story in SPAAAACE! Not bad, I liked it and will read the sequel. Chris Wraight always delivers even if the genre isn't your thing.

    Great start for Warhammer Crime

    Chris Wraight delivers a story that is true to the tropes of the hard-boiled detective genre with a fresh 40k spin.
    The worldbuilding is great and the characters feel very real. In fact, it's the first 40k book to examine what married life and work-life balance would be like in the grimdark future.
    There is some commentary on state propaganda and the police's relationship with the upper and lower classes, but delivered as diegetic musings it enriches the story and is integral to the plot.
    All in all a great read start to finish, 5 out of 5 recommended without reservations.

    Expect the unexpected

    It shows with a beautiful detail the life in one of the hive cities in the cruel warhammer 40k universe. You expect space marines but there are mere peasants of the throne!! I loved every second of the story. Highly recommended.

    Great detective novel, hope for more

    I really like this story and it’s characters , sure it’s a little cheesy but that’s what I expect and love about these kind of novels, detective fictions works surprisingly well in warhammer. I hope GW doesn’t kill off the series like they did with the plague wars novels, I’d really like a successor.

    Chris tried Morgan

    Richard Morgan God-Emporer of CyberPunk Noire, the Master Mind behind Altered Carbon and Mars Overdrive is getting copied into Warhammer 40k Universum by Chris W... however while Morgan relies on Sex, Violence and an extremly deep, rich and detailed world Chris didnt manage to do so. With WH zero sex policy and a lag of references to create an alive and rich scenary there isnt much to fill the pages with. I personally hoped for more, since civil life is rarely covered in WH*0k stories and Chris could have used this freedom for creating something deep and fantastic but he didnt. If you have not read Morgan or Gibson or Clark or Stephenson... try those instead.
