From the Nebula and Hugo Award-winner comes a noir mystery on a colonized Mars, where everything is cheap, and life is even cheaperMy name is Alex Lomax. I'm a P.I. working the mean streets of New Klondike, the domed Martian city that sprang to life in the wake of the booming fossil market. Roughly forty years ago, Simon Weingarten and Denny O'Reilly discovered evidence of ancient life on Mars, and these fossils quickly became valuable sought-after antiquities for collectors on Earth. Then the wannabe treasure hunters swarmed here, suffering from fossil fever, to take part in "the Great Martian Fossil Rush," hoping to strike it rich.

mildly entertaining, but suffers from being neither fish nor fowl. and occasionally too cute by half.

Incorporating the first 10 chapters of Robert Sawyer's Identity Theft into this book, the story continues in this book answering all the dangling threads. This is a fun SF/mystery/noire mash up that pays hommage to stories like The Maltese Falcon. The ability to transfer bodies to artificially constructed bodies keeps you guessing until the end who is whom. And who will live or die. This is a change of pace from Sawyer's previous novels as it does not contain any big idea concepts and is focused mainly on human motivations. Rob's next book returns to the big idea concept and a very fascinating one at that. I eagerly anticipate that one but until then this is an excellent change of pace. Will we ever get to see Alex Lomax again? I wonder as his story does not seem finished...
