Alien Heat

David Silver / Elaki Series #3

  • “One of the best new series in the genre. … Her cast of characters is interesting and diverse, the setting credible, and the pacing rapid-fire and gripping.” —Science Fiction Chronicle

Detective David Silver and his Elaki, partner, String, are back on the streets . . . and in the line of fire. An arsonist has been murdering humans and Elaki, then torching the crime scenes. But even more disturbing are the investors who then buy up the burned-out real estate. They’re members of a bizarre cult. And they’re definitely Elaki.
