Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seattle P.I. Thomas Black is sound asleep when he gets a panicked call from "Snake," a fellow gumshoe, with a case that's one for The X-Files. There's an exotic-looking woman dead in Snake's bed. He's not sure how she died, but he's certain about where she came from--outer space.

Even a murder rap and the specter of prison can't make Snake change his story. Thomas Black's job? To rescue the increasingly paranoid Snake and discover if indeed "the truth is out there." But what Black finds will prove to be more "out there" than he could ever imagine. . . .

Synopsis:

The ninth smart and suspenseful mystery-thriller in the Shamus Award-winning Thomas Black series. By the acclaimed author of this month's new hardcover Deception Pass.

Thomas Black's latest case is one for The X-Files: a fellow gumshoe has found a dead woman in his bed. He's not sure how she died, but he's certain where she came from — outer space....
