When private detective Vincent R. Sturgis stumbles across his second case of a deadly drug known as the Black Death, he suddenly finds himself to be a very popular fellow. Mob bosses tell him to either keep his mouth shut and walk away with a bag of money or to consider a permanent stay in their back freezers at the fish market. All this while his old police chums continue to press him for more information about the drug.
Feeling overwhelmed, as he has never been in such demand, he toys with the idea of taking a vacation when he is approached by a mysterious client who offers him a ticket to the backwater planet of Senturion to investigate a diplomat’s alleged suicide. Without many safe places left on his home planet Ceph for him to lay low, he decides to take the trip—only to find out the deal he has chosen might be his deadliest yet.
Lights Over the Senturion Moon is a gritty take on an interplanetary mystery. Taking inspiration from classic noirs of the past, Jon Vassa paints a terrifying picture of a dark and desperate future. With a host of eccentric personalities and unique locales to fit, Lights Over the Senturion Moon promises to captivate the reader’s attention until the very last paragraph.
