The 21st century's toughest private eye in a future that's running down like a dime-store watch. Where the line between rich and poor is a DMZ and they clean the streets with meat wagons. If you're not tough in a world like that, you're dead.


Swain is always first in line. This time it starts with a desperate Moon-to-Earth call from an old flame and a zombie assassin who tries to give Swain a haircut to his knees. To save the woman he loves from mind-wasting madness, Swain takes off for Freefall, a company town with a capital "C." A space colony of palefaced drones who live -- and die - by the time clock.

When he keeps getting questions instead of answers, Swain, aided by a streetwise lady space cabby, decides to blow the joint apart.
