I was intrigued by the premise of a mystery set on another planet as I have an affinity for genre-blending stories. Too bad it didn't live up to my hopes. I could only stand to read through chapter 11 before putting this lump down.[return][return]The setting for the story is a totally corrupt society on a backwater planet. Very much like Simon Green's Nightside, but instead of dark and spooky, the world is sweaty and moldy. Dark and spooky = interesting. Sweaty and moldy? Just eww.[return][return]I've loved dark protagonists in the past, but this guy Juno has no redeeming features. He is a disappointment to everyone (wife, friend, boss, partner) except maybe himself, because he's such an unmotivated schlub. He doesn't seem very intelligent, he's definitely not lucky or talented, and must even be rather unimpressive physically since he's never described.[return][return]I'm afraid I just don't care enough about the story to even bother to read the last chapter and see how it turns out.
