Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In his first novel, actor Shatner delivers a hard-boiled private eye story set against a science fiction background. Ex-cop Jake Cardigan, framed for dealing ``Tek,'' a popular 22nd-century drug, is released from controlled coma to search for a missing scientist. ``While the writing is awkward in spots, the pace is unrelenting,'' commented PW. (Aug.)
Library Journal - Library Journal
An ex-policeman caught in the schemes of drug lords, unscrupulous businessmen, and his one-time allies turns private detective to track down a missing scientist whose invention could win the war against the insidious computerized drug known as ``Tek.'' Set in a futuristic, high-tech world of robots, androids, and designer drugs, this first novel by Shatner (better known as Star Trek 's Captain Kirk) should appeal to most fans of fast-paced sf action-adventure.

Immersed in the not so distant future, this book follows Jake Cardigan a detective with the Cosmos Detective Agency. This book and the many that follow in it's lead are brilliant works of art by a truly gifted writer. Each book will have you begging for the next.
