Overview

A detective with insomnia chases every cop's worst nightmare...

When a security guard disappears with a priceless Martian meteorite belonging to the Chinese government, and surveillance tapes show a commando team of gray aliens making the snatch, a surly security chief turns to the only agency that might take him seriously: Clarke Lantham Investigations.

After turning down another alien-hunting case earlier this week, Clarke Lantham wants nothing more to do with kooks, cranks, and crooks of any kind. But with a lawsuit, an assistant, and a new ward all chewing through his finances, he needs the paycheck.

Racing spies, assassins, insurance agents, and the FBI, Lantham must find the wandering watchman--and the treasure that went with him--before the theft escalates into a diplomatic flash point between the world's fearsome superpowers and the alien overlords they allegedly support.

But even that might not bother Lantham...if he didn't have to sleep on the couch.

Meet the Author

J. Daniel Sawyer is a hat-wearing, obsessive-compulsive autodidact attempting to write his way out of the loony bin.
A self-aggrandizing science fiction and fantasy author who publishes lurid stories and, worse, the occasional popular philosophy article, he is also a very minor authority on Open Source media production (a topic on which he is, unfortunately, published regularly in LinuxJournal).
In addition to his wanton abuse of the printed word, he unscrupulously uses his decade-long experience as an audio and video producer with his painfully florid and gritty writing style to create deeply immersive audio universes. This habit, which he indulges in public, has garnered him seven Parsec nominations and helped him make his first professional fiction and philosophy sales (a trend which, for the good of the world at large, we can only hope abates soon). Meanwhile, his growing, rabid fan-base is currently plotting to imprison him and force him to produce endless new literary abominations for their amusement. We can only hope they succeed.
Should you be so inclined, you can communicate with this shady character, as well as find podcasts, articles, and other literary abominations at
