Martian Knightlife

THE KNIGHT IS A SAINT (with a twist!) At least you might think so if you read his curriculum vitae. You would swear in fact that this private eye of the future is honest, paying for what he gets, getting what he's paid for, with somehow a little extra for everybody to go around. Take this case, involving a matter transmitter which the inventor tested on himself¾then found his bank accounts empty and his credit cards overflowing, all done by someone whose DNA looks just like that of the rightful owner . . . But that wasn't all. There was also an archaeological expedition which had uncovered ruins that might solve the mystery of the Martian race that had vanished from the planet eons ago¾except that a greedy interplanetary corporation was all set to bulldoze them over in pursuit of the bottom line unless a gallant knight¾or Knight¾could come galloping up on his charger. Then there were some people who were not amused at how the Knight had foiled a sure-fire scheme worth billions, and were looking for him with heavy muscle and heavier artillery . . . People in trouble and people who are trouble just seem to populate his life¾and thank goodness, because they are the very thing the Knight needs to keep his life from getting boring. And the bad guys never seem to know what hits them . . . At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). Praise for James P. Hogan: "Entertaining, imaginative. . . . Readers will want to sign up for this ride."¾Publishers Weekly ". . . fascinating notions and nonstop plot twists in a taut, gripping narrative; a bravura performance."¾Kirkus Reviews ". . . cutting edge scientific approach . . . truly fascinating and hugely enjoyable."¾Starlog
