Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0964167433, Paperback)Winner of the 2010 Indie Book Award for Science Fiction.
Michael Sheppard was the best private eye in New Orleans, and then his wife left him. He finds solace in the bottle and his career in the toilet. Nights at the casino pay the bills, until they don't, and leg breakers start knocking at the door, and knocking out his teeth.
When he's hired by a bombshell heiress to check out a murder on Mars, it's a chance for a new start. But as the case unfolds, he makes enemies of cops and gangsters alike in an investigation racing from stately mansions to smoke-filled speakeasies, from deserted ice colonies to mining towns on the asteroid belt.
All he wanted was a paycheck to clear some gambling debt. Now Michael is the key figure in a murder conspiracy that's left a vacuum in the halls of power, with the labor union, mob and military vying for control of Mars.
RED PLANET NOIR is for science fiction and hardboiled mystery fans alike. Living on Mars can be murder.
