In The Blood by Robert J. Sullivan

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!

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
