A crime mystery set on a planet where Earth sends people whose mental state led to criminal activity. The author does an excellent job of slowing revealing clues to let the reader try to solve what's going on as the story comes to a conclusion where Jon discovers he was a surgeon and Elinda tries to find her lost lover.
Struggled with this title a surprising amount — absolutely loved the premise, but couldn't break through any of the characters or get a real physical sense of the world. Park's writing is solid throughout, but I can't help but feel there was more that needed to be said about these people and Janus itself.
