Far in the future, the Earth is surrounded by a half-mile thick layer of space junk, some of it trash, some of it giant advertising billboards, some of it space-winni vacationers. But Priest, a sexist narcotics detective for The Authority is more interested in the terrorist group whose strange new weapon took a pot shot at his city and atomized everything inside its target area--including his arm.
Priest finds himself partnered with the tough and sexy Rehna, a fellow Authority officer, and Gawyn, a brilliant little girl whose gruff attitude matches Priest's. The three of them track down the terrorists, and their weapon, while Priest looks to deliver his unique brand of justice and get compensation for not one, but two ruined Tac-suits.
Jeremy Robinson has crafted an entertaining story that reads like a tough Bogart police detective in a future where the dirty alleys have been replaced with trash-laden skies. It is a shame this novella isn't a full-blown novel, because although the characters are certainly fleshed out and interesting, I would like to know more about Priest and his partner, and especially the cyber wonder Gawyn. I certainly would recommend this enjoyable tale to fans of detective, science fiction and action stories.–Amazon Review
