A planet in a galaxy far, far away is experiencing a string of murders. The targets are all strictly human so a human detective, from off world, is called in as a specialist. The Zherghi are different than humans but apparently not that different.
Sam Dane is a good character and I enjoyed his behavior. He isn’t a super detective, he appears to be a hard working cop struggling in a vastly foreign environment. Mr. Sullivan does a nice job creating a believable alien society The social and economic impact of the arrival of the humans impacts Zherghi society in a variety of inexplicable ways.
The plot and premise were well done and the story read with a good pace which one would expect from a hard boiled detective novel, albeit one set on an alien planet. This is Bob’s first book and it is a good one. I look forward to the next.
I recommend this book!
