Matter by Ian M. Banks first edition, published in London, 2008. The copy is in near fine condition with only minor wear. There is no damage to boards, and the text blocks are clean. Slight rubbing to the top and tail of the dust jacket. There is not any previous owners ink, no chips or marks. Overall this is a near fine copy.
In a world renowned even within a galaxy full of wonders, a crime within a war. For one brother it means a desperate flight, and a search for the one - maybe two - people who could clear his name. For his brother it means a life lived under constant threat of treachery and murder. And for their sister, even without knowing the full truth, it means returning to a place she'd thought abandoned forever.
Matter was a finalist for the 2009 Prometheus Award.
