Inversions by Iain Banks.

The drone killed them all.

Cheating! I shouldn't be writing this here but want to at least get something down before I lose my train of thought. This isn't officially a Culture book, but it might as well be. Well, it might as well be a fantasy novel, set in a made up land-- with two suspiciously advanced people, a doctor & a bodyguard. Like many Iain Banks works, shit gets bad at the end-- but because our protagonists, or at least, the focal characters, are from the Culture, it ends up okay. Either through technological murdertech, or through social advancement-- why revenge yourself? I quite liked it. That is all I'm going to say about it for the moment, though. Not out of disrespect for the book, which I rather liked, but rather because it is time for me to write some in my novel (I hope).
