Belisarius is a Homo quantus, engineered with impossible insight. But his gift is also a curse--an uncontrollable, even suicidal drive to know, to understand. Genetically flawed, he leaves his people to find a different life, and ends up becoming the galaxy's greatest con man and thief. But the jobs are getting too easy and his extraordinary brain is chafing at the neglect. When a client offers him untold wealth to move a squadron of secret warships across an enemy wormhole, Belisarius jumps at it. Now he must embrace his true nature to pull off the job, alongside a crew of extraordinary men and women. If he succeeds, he could trigger an interstellar war... or the next step in human evolution.

Sci-fi heist novel! I had a great time with it. There is some originality, the story and characters are good, and as best I could tell the author took a serious stab at making the science realistic as possible.

Superb. Great colourful characters and a refreshingly science based science fiction novel.
