RED PLANET BLUES
The New Novel by Hugo and Nebula Award Winner
Robert J. Sawyer
"A terrific noir crime novel that is full of the wonders of
Sawyer's sci-fi world. In Red Planet Blues Sawyer has imagined,
and written, his best book yet."
"A tour de force. A fusion
of the two genres in which the mystery depends on the SF elements."
Analog Science Fiction and Fact
"A rollicking read, at turns funny,
exciting and full of twists and turns."
The Daytona Beach News-Journal
"An excellent detective novel that just happens to take place on another
planet. It's a genre mash-up that might have felt gimmicky in
less capable hands; however, with Sawyer at the helm, it succeeds

My name is Alex Lomax. I'm a P.I. working the mean streets of New
Klondike, the domed Martian city that sprang to life in the wake
of the booming fossil market. Roughly forty years ago, Simon
Weingarten and Denny O'Reilly discovered evidence of ancient life
on Mars, and these fossils quickly became valuable sought-after
antiquities for collectors on Earth. Then the wannabe treasure
hunters swarmed here, suffering from fossil fever, to take part
in "the Great Martian Fossil Rush," hoping to strike it rich.
So I ply my trade among the failed prospectors, corrupt cops, and
"transfers" folks wealthy enough to upload their consciousness
into near-immortal android bodies trying to make an honest
buck in a dishonest world. But now the motherlode of all cold
cases has just landed in my lap: the decades-old murders of
Weingarten and O'Reilly and God only knows what I may dig
