Alien Blues

David Silver / Elaki Series #1

  • “The crimes are out of The Silence of the Lambs, the cops out of Lethal Weapon, and the grimy future out of Blade Runner. Vivid and convincing.” —Lexington Herald-Leader
  • “Complex … Snappy … Original.” —Asimov’s Science Fiction

Life’s tough for Detective David Silver. His marriage is crumbling, a serial killer’s on the loose, and his new partner looks like a seven-foot stingray and smells like fresh limes. But when a murder case leads to a frightening conspiracy, Silver needs all the help he can get–even from an alien.
