Eisenhorn by Dan Abnett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I never was one much for what you might call police procedural type books. However stick them into another setting (such as my apparently eternal Warhammer dive) and I am all over them.
Inquistors in Warhammer are basically the law, they keep chaos at bay and enforce the will of the emperor. I will say upfront that in my list of favorite characters in science fiction, Eisenhorn is on that list. Over the course of the omnibus, he goes from "good cop" to a very well rounded out, broken character that realizes what he is fighting and is more open to the world around him.
Fast paced, action packed, and just well done all round. If you into military scifi or just great action storytelling, this is it (but you probably know this already)
