In this world, it is impossible to kill someone and get away with it, which is why it’s so stunning when not one but two murders occur. The killer left no evidence, and authorities are shocked. An emergency meeting is called as the Security Board investigates, but this case requires thinking outside the box—namely, bringing in an alien detective.
Remi Strand is a man from Earth. He is recruited to this world where no one has been murdered in three centuries to try to make sense of an ineffable mystery. It Remi accepts the case, he will embark on a journey to an entirely different planet. Here, as an outsider, he needs all his wits about him.
He must solve the impossible: how murder could have happened in a society seemingly “healed” of this universal horror. He pursues a brilliant killer, but Remi is no novice. In this place far from home, he will catch a criminal and hopefully make it back to Earth in one piece.
